Our customers say

LEGO DUPLO - My First Carousel - 10845 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as bad as what others have said This is my first Duplo purchase (have been eagerly waiting for my child to hit 18months but alas I could not wait another 3 more months). I received this set just 10 minutes ago and fixed it up quickly to test it out after reading all the bad reviews. Wanted to see if it was really as bad as it is reviewed to be before deciding whether to introduce it to my 15 month old boy. Setting up for me was definitely easy and then when I set up the gears I naturally went for the spacious corners instead of what the box suggested. With this set up I could turn any gear freely and also see the other parts work flawlessly. No issues for me! I did my best to twist haphazardly but nothing flew off as the gears were seated within 4 nodes on the 'grass' base. Of course I would foresee some frustration for my child if he decides to take off the gear and try to twist it off the nodes but overall it is a fun toy to show my baby the workings of gears. I myself enjoyed the various ways to play this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant idea, needs some extensions I really love the idea of these Duplo gears. Other reviewers are right that they are not that stable and thus somewhat challenging for small kids. However, this is still a great extension of the Duplo system and needs only a few little improvements. I designed some addon pieces and printed them myself using a 3D printer. One thing you can try to improve your experience is to put the gears onto to round colums. Unfortunately, only one colum is included in this set but the same colums are included in many other Duplo sets at the moment so you might have some more. It would be great to have colums of a Duplo height of 1 available, though. Another thing you can try is locking a gear in place with another gear on top that is fixed from the top with a bridge. This way, your kid can drive the gear by hand without it popping out of the Duplo grid. This is only necessary for the gear driving the mechanism. It would be great if Lego would introduce an official part to do this. If you have got a 3D printer, you can print something like this pretty easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So so Only got this set because it was on sale but to be honest I'm not a big fan of it. Doesn't really fit in with our other sets and find the kids prefer to play with other ones over this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Mistake, LEGO. Big Disappointment. This set looks like an excellent introduction to gears and I was eager to get one for demonstrating at our LEGO exhibitions. The concept itself is brilliant. Unfortunately the real thing is a complete disaster that never should have made it to sale. You might assume the gears have some sort of fixed base that grips onto the studs below (like a regular LEGO system turntable), then the gear is a freely rotating upper part that won't come away. You would be wrong. The gears just sit loosely over the studs below, so they're free to rotate, but also free to jump off and tip over at the slightest touch; completely unsuitable for a toddler to operate without destroying everything they've just built. This seems a huge missed opportunity to me as a demonstrator and educator; to a child with some emotional involvement in this as a gift I can only imagine the frustration and disappointment. All it would have taken would be to make the gears from two parts clipped together like EVERY OTHER TURNTABLE LEGO HAS EVER MADE and it would have been a truly delightful and educational experience. But they didn't, and it isn't.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from tipsy Whereas I understand the educational value of seeing the gears I honestly think the frustration wins out on this one. I see there is a new set coming out using the same concept with carousel horses which looks adorable but I fear it will have the same issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fun toy for 3 yo girl this is definitely a nice set to teach little ones cause and effect. my 3 yo loves to turn the top of the carousel and watch the gears turn while her duplo figures spin in their seats. the gearwheels do not connect to the base to allow them to spin. she does not get frustrated or trow it around, she just has fun with it. maybe it's not suitable for anyone younger than 3.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor concept I completely ditto Miesterdad!! This carousel set is a HUGE disappointment. My 2 1/2 yr granddaughter who will play with Duplos for 30+ mins was done with this set in 5 mins, very frustrated and knocking the pieces on the ground. She could not operate the gears without them falling off. The company says they left the gears like this on purpose?? To introduce a concept? Um what concept? Failure and frustration? That gears don't work? 5 mins of a non working concept doesn't teach much. Is it possible to get friction gears? If so, where? And regardless of whether this was an intentional feature or not, the concept was clearly not field tested on the age range indicated on the box because it's a huge fail. Sorry for the snarkiness, I'm just so disappointed.
