Hyde Park K. Kringle Department Store & It's Always Christmas Animated Village
Kringle Department Store and Its Always Christmas carousel house. Both have the same 08/08/2013 manufacture date and 11749 batch number on the bottom UPC labels. All internal/external lights, animated figures and sound features are fully functional. Kringles has 18 animated figures (5 upstairs with Santa and 13 downstairs, including 9 on the working escalator); Always Christmas has 11 animated figures (6 upstairs and 5 downstairs, including 2 on the working carousel). Both are very detailed with Christmas trees upstairs, external wreaths/garland and swing-out external street lamps. Additionally, Kringles has 5 removable red/green cloth banner flags. Standard 110V plug with 9V DC adapter and can operate with or without music playing (holiday and non-holiday music). The on/off knob also controls the volume, which is quite loud if turned up all the way. The music is 40 different midi style songs, music quality is ok but would be much better to have holiday carols playing in the room and these set to no-sound.
Note - both have a mild hum while running due to the numerous movement mechanisms and the carousel has a rubbing sound for 1 second with each 11 second revolution. It isnt very loud and only occurs when the building is sitting flat, not if its tilted back or forward which is a mystery. I removed the bottom base and verified the gears have no functional issues. Dimensions: bases are both 8x14 inches, Kringles is 20.5 high at the chimneys and Always Christmas is 22.5 high at the chimney.Will also consider separating the set if it doesnt sell.
