Mr. Hooper's Emporium is the name of a very large gift shop in Sesame Place. It's been in operation since the park opened in 1980.
In addition to having the largest selection of Sesame Street merchandise imaginable, the store has a very unique feature.
A carousel of plush toys that would slowly travel around the store over the heads of children.

The technology seems very similar to the rack that a dry cleaners has that brings the clothes from the front of the store to the back with a push of a button.
The characters rotate around the store and head up a tall skylight over the central cash register.
Today the carousel is still in place and is currently working.
It's good to see it's still there, keeping the store vibrant and lively!
