This is just how I remember them from the 1960s. My mum put it together wrong, so that the angels went backwards. It's easy to make that mistake. If you have a nine year old child they will probably be best at assembly. It's difficult getting it just right. For instance each of the angels and the windmill thing all have a good side and a bad side, as do the long 'tinkly' danglers (no sniggers) that hang from the bellies of the angels. The flat pieces have smoothed edges on the outside, or from above, and the danglers have the joins to the inside. Don't force them. they attach to the angels by sliding them on at an angle. If you put everything together right side out it goes round clockwise from above and the angels go forwards. The hardest part is putting the trumpeting angel on the top that holds everything together without bending the windmill thingy or anything else. He has to be perpendicular or it will wobble as it goes round, so that step takes strength, sensitivity, skill and perhaps fingernails. It works with just one candle but very slowly and you might have to start it gently. Two will get it going. As the candles burn brighter, after a few minutes, the angels go round fast enough to make contact with the bells and tinkle them like fairies far away. Its LOVELY!
