This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
In 2007 I made this mesh for Echo and her Carnival Project, she offered for Sims 2. I thought it was worth to use it
for The Sims 3, too.

After some experiments I was successful to get it spinning around smoothly. I also found a work around to play typical custom music with it. Therefore I added a ticket booth which was cloned of a stereo. In the RAR-file you can find a description how to play the custom sound example that I added to the download.

What I didn't manage to do was to get a Sim to ride on it!

Sorry, but this challenge was more than my skills could handle.
In spite of this I think you'll enjoy it as a nice decoration for your game if you like nostalgic styled objects.
Have fun with it in your game!

The objects are fixed for Pets-EP and later EPs.
Sorry, for the late reaction. I was convinced I already had made a correction!

Technical notes:
To install the objects extract the packages to your mods/packages-folder of the game.
In the catalog you can find both objects under
Outside - Decor - Misc - LawnDecor
Prices: Booth - 1,000 Simoleons; Carrousel - 1,200 Simoleons
The carrousel covers 8x8 tiles; the booth covers 2x3 tiles

Known issues:
Due to the manipulations on the joints I made, the preview in the catalog looks a little bit strange. This doesn't
have any influence on the function of the object! So, don't be surprised.

Polygon Counts:
Carrousel: faces 9,686 (152 per tile); vertices 5422 ( 85 per tile)
Booth: faces 970 (162 per tile); vertices 728 (121 per tile)
