Spectacular Christmas Gifts of Musical Carousel Boxes

by WriterArtist

Gorgeous handcrafted Carousel Music Boxes can take your memories back to childhood, the delightful merry-go-round that took the horses and you the rider to a big, circular ride.

These beautiful carousel rides in Great Britain and many other countries where about a revolving circular platform that gave space to wooden animals and seats that were used by people for fun rides in amusement parks.

I am forever fascinated by “Merry Go Round”, even when I was a kid; I loved to watch the horses going round the periphery in a circular motion. Carousel music boxes are similar to the “Merry Go Round”. In Merry Go Round, the horses move in a complete circle, at the same time they move up and down with the kids waving and shouting at the top of their voices.

What is Carousel Anyway?


Carousel in fact refers to a cluster of machines which usually have a slit in the center and a platform of circle or oval formation. A carousel resembles a platform that is spinning with force on top of rollers that act like ball bearings carrying and supporting it.

These ball bearings have a specific function allowing the carousel to spin around in a circle under the influence of centripetal force. It is a delicate balance of spinning forces and laws of circular motion, much of it depending upon the movement around the central axis. Over the years, I have loved and moved by the magic of carousel, watching it with awe and interest.

Carousel Quote

I feel the carousel starting slowly
And going faster and faster: desk, papers, books,
Photographs of friends, the window and the trees
Merging in one neutral band that surrounds
Me on all sides, everywhere I look.

John Ashbery (b. 1927), U.S. poet, critic. "Self–Portrait in a Convex Mirror."

In particular, I appreciate the ferris-wheel and horse carousel music boxes. The Nativity and the parachute-seated carousels also enchant me.

Would ceramic, metal or wood carousels be most valuable and most valued?

First time I see carousel music boxes. I can see why people thought to invent them. They preserve much of the spirit of fairgrounds.
