Carrousels are such magnificent things! They come in different sizes, all look different and some even have two stories. I read the European carrousels turn clockwise, while American ones turn anti-clockwise.
You know what? Carrousels are actually really simple things! They're just... big round objects that turn and almost always include horses. But that's what makes them so amazing! Even though they only turn, you can still pretend you're riding a horse (or a pig) or sitting in a carriage. You can make up your own story in those few minutes you're taking the ride. From the moment you mount your horse, you're a princess taking a ride on a bright and sunny afternoon with your Prince Charming! Or you're the best horserider in the country and you have to defend that one so important object from thieves that have come to use it for no good!
Carrousels are like portals to your imagination, wether you are a child or not. That's why I find them so incredibly special. And that's why I'm extra thrilled about AP's re-release (I can't say that often enough)!
I read there are quite a few people that collect carrousels (the smaller versions, I hope). Such a wonderful thing to collect...
