LEGO has announced one of its most impressive Creator sets yet in the Fairground Mixer 10244. Focused on recapturing the magic of the traveling carnival, where kids would ride on rickety, precarious contraptions while other would walk around carrying stuffed prized, popcorn, and cotton candy, the set succeeds in its goal.
LEGO unveiled the set this past weekend at the Sydney Brickshow in Sydney, Australia, bringing with it the nostalgia of days gone past. If you were around during the traveling carnival heyday, you know that it all begins with the trucks. That's how all those rides get moved from town to town, and that's how the LEGO Fairground Mixer 10244 operates as well. The entire set of attractions (and characters!) neatly tucks away into the LEGO trucks. Here's a look at what's in the set:
We think that LEGO sets are a super-fun holiday gift for kids that also gets the creative juices flowing, and the LEGO City Mining Truck is our pick for our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide. It's got a few cool, custom features like large all-terrain wheels, dumping function, dynamite with timer and big rock containing 2 gold crystals and 3 gold nuggets. The Mining Truck measures over 4-inches high, 7-inches wide, and 5-inches long. The set includes miner minifigure. You can pick up the LEGO City Mining Truck for $32.06 on Amazon.
