The Play Family Merry-Go-Round was released in 1972 by the Fisher-Price Company. The set centered around a Swiss movement music box that propeled the carnival ride into action when it was wound up. It was ran by the ever cranky mad boy, who lets all the riders know that he's woefully underpaid and overworked. The song featured in the Merry-Go-Round was "The Skaters Waltz". The Merry-Go-Round had 4 seats for Little People riders. The seats resembled animal figures: a giraffe, pig, turtle, and a swan.
