Carousel Review

This LEGO Creator Carousel set is one of the most fun sets that I have ever built. The urge to turn the crank to power the carousel ride is irresistible, especially when you know how it all works. With so many cool pieces to work with that normally wouldn't be found together make this set a unique building experience. Watch the video review and take a look at the detailed photos that go along with our written review for the full analysis.

LEGO Knights Challenge Set Review 6060

This classic set originally sold for $22 back in 1988. Now it generally goes for $45-85 used. Unlike most sets in the Castle theme, its not a fortress or siege weapon. Instead the set focuses on a medieval tournament. We bought our set used, and it is missing a few parts and the box, but other than that is complete.

It comes with a single instructions manual, 8 well equipped minifigures and 2 horses with printed bardings. The parts included are mainly in bright colors, blue, red, green, and yellow, though there are some more neutral tones included too.
