Charming carousel with animals based on drawings by children

Totally Kid Carousel created by Maria Reidelbach and Milo Mottola is at Riverside State Park in New York:
When it was decided that Riverbank State Park needed a carousel, Milo Mottola needed a plain and simple design in order to fit the budget, since there wasn't enough money for the type of elaborate carving that a traditional merry-go-round would use. To achieve this, a contest was held and 36 drawings made by children living in the area were selected and were rendered in foam and fiberglass.
