Besides the beautiful carousel (take a ride on it for $2) there is a HUGE collection of toys, games and books for sale. Whatever you may collect, there is a good chance they will have something you want. Also a gift shop within, antique toy collections, fudge shop, ice cream shop and by chance you may see their llamas.

You have to take the kids on this carousel if you are going to Lark Toys - it is an absolute gem and worth the $1 per kid - better than the breadsticks at Olive Garden!!!

I remember in the late 1980s when this carousel was being built. One could watch through windows as it was being created. It is an amazing creation that is old world. Something not done any more. It is still there for kids of all ages to take a ride on.

There are so many toys for all ages, and the carousel itself is really a thing of beauty. There is also great tasting ice cream available!

This is one of the most unusual carousels I have ever seen. They were all carved by the man who owned Lark Toys. It is fun to ride!

Took my mother here on a day trip. This was easily accessible for her and her walker. They have a small café with food and ice cream. Their fudge was very delicious. Various places to shop with things for young and old. Being a puzzle lover, I was delighted with their large selection of puzzles, games, and toys for kids.... More

My granddaughter and I stopped to see the Lark toys and carousel. The animals on the carousel are beautiful and a ride only costs $2. But check out times, because it doesn't run all the time. There were also many beautiful new toys, books, games, etc. and a museum of old toys, dolls, games, etc. Definitely worth a stop!

These hand carved animals must be seen to be believed. The wood is stained rather than painted, which makes it truly unique

This Carousel is just beautiful. The detail and time that went into it is truly amazing and greatly appreciated. My parents took me, my younger sister, and my 10 year old son for a visit. My son LOVED it!! Let me remind you, this is a 10 year old boy growing up in a digital world. He was in awe... More
