Shoot Me NowCarnival

Published on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 by

I have had this carousel music box since at least first grade.  I remember holding it and watching the horses go round and round for ages.  There used to be three riders, but sadly, the third has gone missing.

The top of the carousel reminds me of an old traveling carnival ride.  As the riders spin, the music box plays Spinning Wheel.  It was wonderful to take it out and play with it again!

    That is adorable. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to pull out all of my music boxes and amuse myself!

  • I like it. Little mini wooden carnival. Very colorful.

  • This is going to freak out Lauren since she doesn’t know that toys were once made of wood and then painted. Poor soul might have a heart attack right here on your blog.

    Even with just two little riders, it’s really magical. I used to love that song. Nice one and a nicely composed photo too, Katherine.

  • Wow. I can’t believe you’ve had that since FIRST grade! And, it’s in pretty excellent condition too.

    Lovely, Katherine. Just lovely.

    Cute! Cute! Cute, Katherine! And as Meleah shared, I cannot believe you’ve had this since the FIRST grade. Amazing!

    Perfect photo for this theme, girl!


  • Cute. Amazing you’ve kept it for 70 years.

    OMG – you are going to have punish nonamedufus for his comment!

  • That’s a beautiful music box, Katherine. 🙂 You should’ve posted a video of it for us.

    I’m really happy that our little challenge allowed you to take a stroll down memory lane, and I love your musical box.

    *Sigh* I can’t take these people anywhere.

  • That is so cute. I haven’t ever seen one like that. The little riders look like the original little people that Fisher Price made.

  • That is wonderful. You have such cool stuff.

    What a wonderful thing. Such a shame you’re missing a horse. It looks as if the horses spin round on their poles as the carousel goes round? Neat!

  • This made me smile so big. I love this!
