I’m not particularly sure why, but I have always felt that merry-go-rounds are a bit weird. I’m guessing that this is because I was always in charge of the riding toy in which I was currently engaged, which gave it a shorter life that had it been owned by someone else. The gentle up and down of a merry-go-round never really appealed to me. To be clear, I will not again go on the Zipper, but something between the two is more appealing.
