Inspired by a poem Tim Burton had written in 1982 while working at the Walt Disney Animation Studios, Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" went on in 1993 to become a film classic. Now, the film inspires The Nightmare Before Christmas Carousel, a first-ever from The Bradford Exchange that whirls you back to Halloween Town with the turn of a key and a display of lights, music and motion. Jack Skellington, Sally and Zero - all your favorite characters are here, over twenty in all, crafted in artist's resin, and painted in fine detail. Anyone who appreciates Disney films is sure to find plenty to admire here, from the moon on Spiral Hill showcasing a silhouette of Jack and Sally on the front and Oogie Boogie on the back, to the graveyard atop the carousel canopy, to the giant snake that winds its way around the base. Skeletons dangle and witches ride by, surrounded by jack-o'-lanterns, coffins, ghosts and more. At the flip of the three-way switch you control not just the lights that set the moon, canopy and seven pumpkins aglow, but also the rotating movement of the lighted carousel and the melody of "This is Halloween" that fills the air! A fine adult collectible, not intended for children.
