Carrousel Jules Verne - Parc de Monceau

Carrousel Jules Verne


There are carousels at every turn in Paris, and I am not even sure how many.  For me there are about five favorites but I have a list of ones yet to visit.  


Carrousel Jules Verne is a relatively new addition to Parc de Monceau (autumn 2011).  The colorful, petite merry-go-round is a highlight for the children of the neighborhood.  On weekends every ride is taken, and during the week the mamans and nannies gather with the young children.

Genie I am glad you are hooked on carousels. This one is so exotic.

A lifetime ago Jules Verne was one of my favourite authors. Wouldn't it be wonderful to read 20,000 leagues beneath the sea to a child and then take them to this carousel.

Love the turquoise submarine!

Using Jules Verne's adventures theme is wonderful for kids!They can dream to be great travellers or discoverers!

A lovely canopy over the carrousel!

I love that carousels are part of daily life in France rather than a once-a-year thing at the fair. This themed carousel is fun.
Want to play along with Dreaming of France today?

Fun looking sub.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Oh, yes, I do love the carrousels! This one is running counter-clockwise so that the jousters can use their right arm.

Bises,
Genie

How wonderful to have a Verne themed carousel! I didn't make it to Parc Monceau on our recent trip, which was shame, but there's always something to look forward to next trip.
