Description: This is a perfect center for your Precious Places® village! The Twirling Melody Gazebo has a wind-up music box that plays music as Brittany dances. The Gazebo is on a green plastic base that is slightly raised from the ground on tiny pegs. This allows the accessory key to fit under the base to move the accessory figures around. The figures and some of the accessories have a magnet on the bottom that follows the magnet in the key when the key moves under the floor, this makes the figure appear to "come alive" and move by itself. Designed for children ages 5 years and older.
