The typical carnival sort that will go well with the other sets in this theme (Fairground Mixer & Ferris Wheel.) For a set of this size, it would be nice to have a few additional figures as well as accessories. Enough figs to be on each animal as well as a ticket taker. The hot dog and ice cream cone are a nice touch.
Excellent. The standard for Themed sets such as Star Wars is generally 10 cents per piece. Lego can go less on non themed sets such as City and Creater Expert and this is no exception. At 2670 pieces this value comes in at 7.5 cents per piece. A great value.
Carousel can be motorized but that does not come with this set. You can twist a crank to rotate the Carousel which is nice and the animals will go up and down like a real one. This is a great touch. The Carousel does not go terribly fast when you crank it. The crank could be smoother, but it works.
Each "Bag" on average takes about 1.5 hours. The 2nd bag and the 5th bag were very monotonous. You will need to do the same step 6 times or 8 times or 12 times and in one case 24 times. I found this to be boring. Part of the set are fairly complex, but just to the point where you can't mindlessly build this or you could make a mistake.
It's a great size and quite striking. The animals in particular are probably the best part of this set. They are detailed and fun to build. Great that it turns and the detail makes it beautiful.
If you are starting out with the Creater Expert Carnival Line, I recommend the Fairground Mixer which was released several years ago but is still out. That is a fantastic build and has quite a bit of variety. I have not build the Ferris Wheel, but it does look quite large. This could be a great display piece for your child's room or as part of a larger scene with the above mentioned sets. Four stars for a beautiful set, great value and fairly fun build, but I will not look back on it and wish I could build it again due to the monotony of some steps.

Full-color instruction book
You can add on a Lego motor to the carousel, but it is not included.
The build is recommended for ages 16+, and I have to agree with that recommendation. This is a cerebral, thinking build that requires attention and focus. One page of the instructions, page 76, took me several hours.
This build has several large, round components. Unlike the Lego Creator modular buildings that are rock-solid squares, this Carousel has layers of circular components that require finesse to build and assemble.
This is a challenging addition to the Creator line. If you want a build that will take time, that will take focus, that will push your skills, then this is the set for you.
I am building my own Lego City. I had ignored this set when it came out as one that really wasn't my thing. And what a mistake that was.
This is the most fun I have had building a Lego set in a long time! There were parts that as I was building them, I had no idea what they were going to be in relation to the completed item.
More than once as I built it I stated "Oh! So thats what id does!" - much fun.
And not easy. I was told by my wife that she had never heard me swear so much during a build! Something I need to work on, but it shows how complex much of this was. The age advisory of sixteen plus is a good guide.
But a fun family project, or something to simply keep your (or a loved ones) hands and mind busy. This is perfect!
And the finished item? Simply WOW. You should by the motor to go with this, it does make it better! But even without, its simply majestic.
