That would be cool! There isn't much out about them. I know they bugged me when I was looking for my Little Beauties Carrousel horses, though! Everyone thought that I was talking about the Matchbox ones! :o


I can't really see the logo... but this pic I saved from eBay awhile back is the carousel, right?

There are a few pages on them but I just went to look at my favorite guide and it's gone now :(

I wish I had saved the pics or something.  I don't think ahead like you zuse ;)

A bunch of sites I really really liked are gone now. Back in the day when I had better manners I only stole pictures from eBay. All these sites had little "Copyright" disclaimers at the bottom. And now they're gone. I wish I'd saved them so I could have at least posted a mirror one or something to be an archive. A lot of them apparently didn't get picked up by archive.org in time...

More pics: (I never realized that there was a charm bracelet and you received a charm with each horse you bought...)

I have the carousel, the poster, and one horse (my carousel is rather empty).   I had a charm once (that came with my horse, Wild Flower), but I lost it.   The carousel is supposed to come with a horse, but someone had opened all of the boxes at the TRU I bought it from and stolen the horses.   I was not happy about that.

I wish my poster still looked as nice as the one pictured, lol.  I used to look at it for hours, imagining all the pretty horses. 

I have wanted to buy more, but they are so hard to come by, and when I do find them, they go for way more then I can afford.

As far as I can tell these are all the horses - if ive missed any please let me know as this is my definitive list that i originally got from carsthetoys forum a while ago

Classic Collection
Dawn Light         
Daydream           
Sunshine           
Morning Glow     
Raindrop
Twilight
Starbright       
Honey Cup
Misty Meadow
Snowflake         
Silver Dawn
Shadow
Moonlight         
Starburst
Wildflower
Harmony           
Star
17 Horses confirmed in this debut group. All had white tails, and many had white bodies and looked similar.


Carousel Animals
Cameo             
Camelot           
Diamond
Topaz
Frosty
Rudy
Misty
Moonbeam
8 Animals of four different types, all confirmed. Camel, lion, reindeer, and unicorn in different, metallic colors. They were on poles and had names, too, and can be harder to find than the horses.


Bright Beauties
Starry           
Glowy                 
Sunbeam
Halo
Sunset
Sea Bright
6 Horses in new colors


Fancy Trotters
Jazma*             
Golda

Rosette*
Lilly
6 Horses, three confirmed. These are some of the most beautiful of the line.

Fashion Parade
Frisco*             
Ribbon*               
Goody*
Royal*
Hopper*
Dancer
6 Horses, with five confirmed. These got a neat new feature, which was a layer of different color shading and irridescent glitter on their manes, hindquarters, and leg joints. They also had solid color, non-white tails.


Rocking Horses
Rosegay
Finesse
Damasque
3 confirmed horses featured on a new, tippy base. It is always an ominous sign when the set numbers drop like this. It usually means the brand is on its way out. These were unique colored horses, and for the first time there was even a brown one (with socks!). They came with a huge, curved thing that allowed them to tip.


and dont forget the swan carridge -
http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=424666&image=406267703&images=406267675,406267680,406267762,406267713,406267694,406267703,406267718,406267726,406267737,406267749,406267754&formats=0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0&format=0

came as a set with two other horses (the horses you could still get separate but the swan was only part of a set)

any other pictures you need i can try and help no probs as i have a few myself xxx

I wasn't even aware there was a swan!  How neat!  Do you know what horses came with it?   And does anyone know what the special horse that came with the carousel was?  As I mentioned earlier, mine was missing the horse when I bought it at the store.

Does anyone know what is up with that black Twilight on the Fashion Parade card in zuse's post?  If that is a variant, how many more could possibly exist?!

(sorry about all the questions >_<)
