There is not....you have to turn it. It is very nice and SOLID. I was in Minneapolis this weekend and it was nice. It would be OK on a dresser kind of angled and then you could reach the doll. It would awkward for a small kid as it is quite heavy.
I liked it for me (for my doll) but it would drive my DD crazy having to lift and turn it to get her doll. Although it turns better on carpet.
