Complete in Box - Near Mint Condition.

Vintage Fisher Price Dump Truckers - Complete


Vintage Fisher Price Dump Truckers - Box
This is the #797 Dump Truckers set made by Fisher Price in 1965-1970.  It is 100% complete in the box and in truly amazing condition for a 50 year old toy.  First I'll tell you what's wrong with it.  Not much, but here's what I found:

There is some VERY slight wear to the green litho on the front edge of the base.  This is extremely light wear, and hardly worth mentioning....but I mention everything I see.  The only other imperfection is that there is some age darkening on the white litho (the one with the black arrows) on top of the toy.  Again, a very minor defect in my opinion.  And that's all.

For the rest this toy is just about perfect.  There are no breaks or cracks in the plastic building.  The masonite base is complete with no bent or broken corners.  All the lithos are clean and complete with no tears, stains or bubbles in them (except for the imperfections noted above).  The gas pump on the side has its hose and nozzle.   This toy works perfectly.  Put one of the black balls into the hopper, back the truck into the garage, and the ball drops into the back of the truck.

The accessories:  All are original to this set.  Included are the three correct trucks, three plastic balls (each with the lines etched around them), and three all wood Little People.  These straight sided Little People are original to this set. Each is in very good to excellent condition.  They have nice clean fact paint.  There are no chew marks on them.

The box:  This has not fared as well as the toy inside.  The box has several dings and dents in it, and has clearly been repaired with transparent tape in several places.  Also, one side flap is quite faded as you can see in the picture below.  However it is complete with all flaps attached....and how cool to find the set with the box after all these years.



As with all my toys, this set has been carefully cleaned before listing.
