The carousel is a nostalgic ride, loved by many and LEGO® has created a fantastic model packed with rich details and design. To build upon this model’s realistic features, this is a lighting kit that captures the spirit and imagination of the Carousel.
This kit comes with light functions that complement the model’s turning motion, transforming the Carousel into an interactive and visual wonder!
This kit contains:
- 48 x White Bit Lights
- 6 x White Strip Lights
- 10 x Connecting Cables
- 2 x Multi-Colour Changing Light String
- 5 x Expansion Boards
- 10 x Adhesive Squares
- 6 x Assorted LEGO® pieces for assembly
- 1x AA Battery Pack (requires 3x AA Batteries)
The Battery Pack
The battery pack is a real problem for this set. It simply has to live in the top part of the carousel, yet doing so is both in the way and inconvenient to turn on and off.
The solution is quite simple
First dismantle the top of the carousel to reveal the battery pack.
Then take the battery pack and carefully slide it down through the wires so it hangs down next to the animals.
Connect the brick across the support beams in the top of the model.
Loop the elastic band around one end, down around the battery pack, and back up again.
You’ll need these two things : an elastic band and a long LEGO brick. I’ve used a technic beam since it was to hand but a 10 or 12 stud long brick would do fine too.
2) The flashing lights in the top
This may be a personal gripe but others may agree. Once the set is fully assembled and lit up you can see the flashing coloured lights through the canopy, and they highlight all the wires.
