THAT'S CRICKET

The old, human-powered carrousel in the Jardin du Ranelagh in the 16th arrondissement, is a nostalgia-loaded Parisian landmark, and a must for travelers with tots. Notice the name of this merry-go-round horse's breastplate: Cricri, onomatopœia for the chirping cricket. The merry-go-round slowly swirls around when either a crank is hand-turned, or here below, when it's simply pushed along. 

Vocabulary
cricri:  a nickname for cricket
un grillon:  a cricket
