A roundabout is a revolving circular platform, there are two main types of these.
This roundabout is a big carousel provided with wooden animal seats on which people ride for amusement. Another term for this is merry-go-round. In 1991 there is a picture on the Dursley family mantelpiece of Dudley Dursley on a roundabout at the fair.
This roundabout is a little flat disk that can be made to spin by pushing on its handles. The children who spin it can jump on, and experience a dizzying ride. A roundabout could be found on the playground at Magnolia Crescent, close to Magnolia Road.
