LEGO has officially announced the long rumored Expert Creator Carousel (10257).  Like a day at the fair, minus the riff-raff and obnoxious kids, the Carousel features all the detailing of a vintage Merry-Go-Round like: Reflective rounding boards, a 2-tier deck and five buildable animal rides (four of which actually move).  With just a turn of the crank the ride animals move and down as the Carousel spins round and round.

Consisting of over 2600 pieces, the set includes seven minifigures (ride operator, mom, dad, boy, girl, and grandmother with granddaughter), ticket booth and all sorts of accessories that make any day at the fair worthwhile like:  Ice cream, candy, hot dog and a camera.

The LEGO Creator Carousel (10257) retails for $199.99 and will be available for purchase on June 1, 2017 at your local LEGO store or at shop.lego.com.
