Description: The Popularity of #969 Ferris Wheel made way for this spin-off of sorts. Again we have a Little People set centered around a Swiss movement music box that propels a carnival ride into action when it is wound up. As in the Ferris Wheel, the Merry Go Round is run by the ever cranky mad boy, who lets all the riders know that he's woefully underpaid and overworked. Instead of, "In The Good Ol' Summertime", the song featured in the Merry-Go-Round is "The Skaters Waltz". The Merry-Go-Round has a masonite base and 4 seats for Little People riders. The seats resemble animal figures: a giraffe, pig, turtle, and a swan.
