When There’s No Lego, The Guidecraft Dress-up Carousel’ll Do
Awhile ago, we bought this thing online for Queen E's birthday. Several cancelled orders later (because no one wanted to ship it), the pieces arrived. Added bonus: saved us getting a Lego set. I am guilty of calling Scratch projects and Ikea assembly instructions Lego sets. Everything's a Lego set. Or a jigsaw. Like, all those little kiddie pretend building sets they sell for tonnes of money (and convenience) and the there's lotsa real-life stuff you can use..
Over here we have
under-utilised cheap free child labour to assemble furniture (NO glass; those are child-safe mirrors).
JD builds a mean Guidecraft Dress-up Carousel.
But Queen E did quite a bit with the alan key.

Lego instructions separated at birth
The instructions are quite comprehensive, the kids could search the parts for those little alphabet stickers... we put Queen E on Alphabet Location Detail... but we still ended up having to reassemble this thing a couple times. Ok fine, I held stuff up while they reassembled. And bickered about reading the instructions wrong.
Although here she's using her little turtle magnets to pull the screws back out after unscrewing them.
The turntable was tonnes of fun...
...and voila! Now Anna and Whatsisname can go for a spin (while she takes an egg break)
Joyously, Queen E moves all her Animal Subjects in. (Like, the look on her face is just cray, okay.)
Ps: I just got back. In a manner of speaking. Been awhile, my marbles were elsewhere.
Voila! Animal high-rise that goes round.... and round..... and round...... and round............!
