Paint according to your own imagination: The delicate contours on the wood of the attraction for the horse, the elephant and the bear help with easy painting.
Cognitive learning effect: The name comes from the French "carousel" and was the original name for an event of the nobility, the equestrian game with ring piercing. In the 18th century, young noblemen dueled their riding skills by trying to impale rings that hung on a pole with their lance. Already in the Middle Ages there was a similar game in which knights tried to catch rings while driving by from a rotating stand. After the character of the equestrian games changed somewhat in the course of the 18th century, the rotating carousel with wooden horses was created on a platform, on which the women also enjoyed themselves and which was operated by pure muscle power. Today we usually find the carousel at the fair, where both young and old are enthusiastic.
In this wonderful model, the figures of a horse, an elephant and a bear can be seen, which, like the original, are on a round platform. You can roll it and turn it in your hands to see how it is built and how it works. The carousel rotates on vertical axes and works on the principle of a roller bearing.
