    Description

    McDonald's Playland Merry-Go-Round Design Drawings Original Art Group of 8 (McDonald's/Setmakers, 1982-85). Each ride in McDonald's Playland was custom-designed and engineered to seamlessly incorporate the McDonaldland characters. This is a collection of technical drawings of proposed merry-go-round rides for McDonald's playgrounds. Each is carefully rendered in graphite and includes detailed measurements, mechanical suggestions, and material call-outs. These were submitted purely for consideration on feasibility of engineering and cost, which makes them incredibly rare, one-off concept pieces that have been seen by very few. The list of rides and their dates are: Proposed Electric Operated Merry Go Round for Small Children (1982), Mini-Hamburglar Carousel (1984), Proposed Mini-Carousel (1983), Mayor McCheese Whirl Revision (1984), Goblin Whirl 6 (1982), Hamburglar Ride 1 and 2 of 2 (1984), and Proposed Bucket Ride (1985). All are drawn on 24" x 36" Setmakers-branded vellum and show minor handling and edge wear. Condition is Very Good.
