CARnival / toy car


The CARnival is an educated music toy for children. It features musical instrument as wheels which plays a musical track when the child rolls the car back and forth. The CARnival uses the same mechanics of wind up music box. Each wheel of the car can be rearranged to play different tracks. The small bumps on the metal track are picked by a metal leverage which will play the musical track. Different tracks can be inserted into different places and they can combine to form multiple musical possibilities. Each car can also be attached to the other simply by placing its rear hook to another’s front ring to form a music parade.
