This traditional tin-metal toy is made in Germany. The more we looked at this, the more we were drawn to it emotionally – despite the fact that we are all full adults. It evokes the idea of a country fair. So we got it for your children or grandchildren, but really think you’ll like it too. The “Rotating World” ride is driven by a springlever which the child (or perhaps you) simply push and release. The globe rotates and soon has the boats and their passengers flying around in a circle too. It’s simple fun.
