Get ready to spin with Lemax's Pumpkin Tilt-N-Hurl!

People always like getting new things.  From when we're little kids with birthday presents to when we become parents and spread that joy to our own children.  We are thrilled to announce that we have new items coming very soon to our website.  For the past few weeks, we have been covering different ride pieces from Lemax and we continue that trend this week with one of the new pieces we will be carrying.

Lemax's Pumpkin Tilt-N-Hurl

Just like The Giant Wheel, the Pumpkin Tilt-N-Hurl is one of the the carnivals more iconic rides.  Much like the infamous Tea Cups at a certain Mouse run establishment, this ride is for the strong stomached and not the faint of heart.  Even the bottom pumpkin is feeling ill from all the spinning!  The kids always seem to have a good time on it, making pacts to ride it together or dragging friends with them.  The fair continues to deliver with one thrill ride after another.

This piece is one of the most elaborate pieces that we've seen from Lemax.  The pumpkin cars spin independently while they spin around the stack of pumpkins in the middle, in addition to the lights, music and sounds of riders.  It is swiftly becoming one of our favorites.  As usual, it does take up one outlet with its power source, but we do have a bit of a warning about the packaging. 

The styrofoam says "TOP" or " THIS SIDE UP" on the part housing the base, but the pumpkin cars are packaged in a separate compartment underneath that part.  Unfortunately, we broke a few of the pumpkin cars during this discovery for our display piece.  Thankfully, we were able to use a hot glue gun to secure them back together.  Our best advice is to be as careful as possible when removing this one from the packaging.  Maybe open it on the floor or over carpet to avoid the mistake we made.

Despite that, this piece is a true centerpiece when it's all setup and spinning.  Another home run from Lemax!

And, as always, happy village building ;)

This week, we continue our dive into Lemax's carnival rides with one that pushes the envelope.  It is one of the most elaborate, yet simple pieces we have.  While that may seem like a contradiction, this piece exemplifies how that can be done.  The motion is simple, but the piece is very large and has quite an interesting reference as the name.

Ferris wheels are a staple of fairs and amusement parks.  They have an iconic look that is immediately recognizable.  Despite being a simple ride that is almost always the same thing, there are always people riding them.  This is most likely due to the relative safety it offers while providing a relaxing view of the surrounding area and the motion isn't too crazy.  Let's take a look at Lemax's version that we can add to our villages.

Zombies & Planes

April 03, 2020

Carnival rides tend to encapsulate the very essence of Halloween.  Giving everyone that rides them a good thrill.  A thrill that is created by a combination of the fun that comes from a celebration and just a tiny dose of fear.  Fear that one of the fine employees putting the rides together made sure all the screws were there.  Today's piece has just a bit more fear.  Due to it being run by zombies.
