You spin me round, round, baby right round… Whoops, that song was about records, not about fun playground equipment. We hope everyone who builds this merry-go-round is transformed back to their childhood (unless you are still in it!) and gets to experience the fun of spinning faster and faster, and that wobbly feeling as you try and walk away, with legs like jelly, and your head still spinning just a little. Maybe not too soon after a big Christmas lunch.

This model was created by AuckLUG member David Manley, and is based on one his children used to play on. They immediatley recognised the merry-go-round, despite many changes over the years, saying "That's like the one from the park" when they saw it. David is one of AuckLUG's goto guys for giant ball contraptions, and automation, and for creating printed instructions from LDraw or Stud.io models. In fact, David has created all the instructions for this calendar.
