Cognitive and developing: In the 16th century “carousel” / “merry-go-round” was originally the name of an event for the nobility, which replaced joisting and included a "horse ballet" and costume riders and horses. In the 18th century French engineers have evolved the idea of a mechanical carousel with a rotating circular platform, with wooden horses mounted on it. In those days, visitors sat on the horses trying to rip off the rings from the poles or had to hit the targets in a circle. In course of time a merry-go-round purchased acquaintances to us lines and associated with childhood and family leisure. The figures of horse, bear and elephant are set on the rotating round platform in the 3D coloring model «Merry-go-round». You can roll your favorite toy or twist a carousel in your hands and find out how it is arranged and how it works. A merry-go-around is rotated about vertical axis and evidently shows the principle of work of the roller bearing. Assembles easily and is fun to play with.

But if the fingers are too small, it may need some help.
