1973 Muscial Ferris Wheel #969
Second Version
Vintage Fisher Price Ferris Wheel - Complete

This  is the second version of the #969 Musical Ferris Wheel made by Fisher Price in 1973-1980.  We know it's the second version because the seats on the ferris wheel do NOT have posts in them.  Those seats with posts were only on the first version and made to hold the original all wood straight sided Little People.  This version was meant to hold the "regular" shaped Little People of the 1970s.

The toy is complete with four color coded Little People and in fabulous condition.  One thing to note is that the litho on the front of the wheel is not original.  It is obviously a replacement litho.  All the other lithos appear to be original.  There are a few minor stains here and there on the lithos, but really not bad considering the age of this toy.
There are no breaks or cracks in the ferris wheel.  The masonite base is complete with no bent or broken corners.  If you look at the last picture below, you will see that the lithos on the ticket booth shows light age darkening. The rest of the lithos are in very good condition as well.  There are no tears or stains in any of them, and even virtually no bubbles in them.  The four plastic Little People are in great shape as well.  There are no chew marks on any of them.

Best of all, this ferris wheel is in perfect working condition.  When you wind it up the music plays, the wheel turns, and the angry boy operating the ride rocks back and forth.  The song played is "The Skaters' Waltz", and it plays at the correct speed.  The musical movement for this toy was made in Switzerland.

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