A visit to Carousel is like Christmas come early. The vintage British-esque toy store with giant window displays and life-sized Nutcracker figurines guarding at the entrance is whimsical to say the least. The welcome sight of model airplanes, jack-in-the-boxes, rocking horses and toy soldiers from a bygone era gives this vibrant red-and-white shop a touch of difference compared to other ubiquitous chains in town.
