Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
| 1973 Play FamilyCircus
100% Complete - Excellent
|This is the
first version of
the Play Family Circus Train made by Fisher Price in 1973-1978.
includes the blue gondola (flat) car and the giraffe. Both these
were omitted in later versions of this toy. Also, please note
that the three Little People in this set have wood bodies and plastic
heads. Subsequent versions came with all plastic Little People.
The four train cars are in excellnet condition. There are no breaks or cracks in any of the pieces. The lithos on all sides are original and in great shape as well. All the white connectors are attached and functional. The big yellow button on top of the engine still makes its toot-toot sound. The only thing to note here is that the yellow pull string is not original. It's a replacement I added as the original was lost a long time ago.
The three Little People have wood bodies and plastic heads. These too are in wonderful condition. All have nice clean face paint. The light blue conductor has a bit of fading to his body paint, which is common for this piece, but it's not really bad at all. The clown has just the tiniest bit of paint wear on his nose.
The animals are just beautiful. They are complete with no missing parts (ears, tails, etc.) As you can see in the picture below, all the animals can stand and be posed. Here's a complete list of what you'll get:
Circus Train Engine
Green Cage Car with ramp
Blue Gondola Car
Red and Yellow Caboose
Wood/Plastic Clown, Engineer and Ringmaster
As with all my toys, this set has been carefully cleaned before listing.
