First Day of Issue: October 1, 1988; First Issue Location: Sandusky, Ohio. The thought of a carnival evokes happy carnival sounds: children laughing, game hosts urging customers on, craftsmen selling their wares. And there, in the midst of it all, the organ music beckoning, sits the magnificent carousel. Spinning in a maze of fantastic creatures, each seeming to leap up and then methodically lapse down, the carousel bears a magic all its own. Children's eyes shine, for this is truly a ride; a ride as beautiful and exciting as their own imaginations can make it. Choosing the most wonderful mount they can find, the children prepare for the ride. And, as the music starts, they turn slowly. Then, faster and faster they ride. Some imagine themselves medieval knights, while others are Arabian horsemen. Still others are raucous western cowboys. No matter, the magic of the carousel captures their hearts and holds them fully entranced. The carousel is indeed a magnificent, magical ride, bringing a special kind of laughter and joy to many children's lives
