5552 The Ferris Wheel!
« on: May 31, 2014, 00:19:10 »
Today I decided upon the Ferris Wheel over the swings.  I however did not get the motor (and now wish that I had since they had it in stock.)  This set requires 4 AAA batteries to operate the lights on the Ferris Wheel.



I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

It's got lots of parts to put together and sticker... It was like being in sticker purgatory today (and as I was stickering the cars I got tired and screwed up a few times).



 

But once you get it together you realize how big it is.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

Here it is not lit up



and the reason you need the batteries (a neat rotating pattern of colors)

I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

And then I put the train in front of it.




I forgot to mention that the cars swivel.  It's a pretty neat set and I'm glad that I bought it.  Now to save up to get the rest of the pieces.

Awe man. I keep telling myself, "This is too large. You don't need this. You won't have room for it." Yet every time I see it, I think I want it more.

I agree..

Thank you for the review - it is a real nice set!  (I do wish they'd stop with the darn blinkie winkies everywhere)

It is pretty large. You can see my large drink cup in the one picture that turns out to be a nice comparison for scale.
