As for the technical aspects, the Ugears Carousel is based on the same principle as most Ugears self-propelled models: all parts of the puzzle are joined without glue or additional tools and the motion energy is provided by a rubber band motor. The Carousel has a wind-up key under its base that provides tension to the rubber bands attached to the main axle. The pendulum gears down the axle and makes the movement of the modules and details smoother. The main axle is connected to the central pole via the planetary gear that ensures that it rotates in the direction opposite to the main platform. The roof is also attached to the main axle and crankshafts that make the horses go up and down while spinning around the central pole.
It is great fun to observe the model in motion, but if you are one of those people who like to see with their hands, you can rotate the Carousel manually. This will allow you to examine every detail in slow motion and give you a full comprehension of how the mechanism works.
Ugears Carousel is a perfect gift for someone who wants to turn away from daily stress and for a few hours feel the carefree magic of the fair. Put it together, wind it up and we guarantee you will hear that music, feel the buzzing atmosphere of the holiday fair, and remember how much joy it was to ride your favorite horse on its happy round and round trip!
