Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
|1975 Sesame Street #938
100% Complete - Excellent Condition
is the #938 Play Family Sesame Street set made by Fisher Price in
1975-1976. It is 100% complete with all the correct original
accessories and in excellent condition. It's not quite perfect, and here's what I found:
The first thing to note is that the Fisher Price litho on the roof is NOT original. It's a professionally made replacement I attached because the original was destroyed. You will notice that there are a couple of spots of wear to the paint on the green side....where the two halves of the house meet when closed. This is, unfortunately, quite a common flaw, but the paint wear on this Sesame Street is considerably less than you'll find on most of these toys. The only other imperfection I can find is that there are a couple of very small bubbles on two of the floor lithos inside the building. They are minor, and not really noticeable unless you're looking for them (I was).
There are no breaks or cracks in either the building or the base. The handle and latch on top are perfect so that this set closes securely for storage or carrying. The green chalkboard is clean and unmarked. I did notice a little bit chalk residue on the board, but I think I can clean that off. The only litho damage I can find is the few bubbles mentioned above. The rest of the lithos are perfect.
On to the accessories. They are all here and all are original to this set. Note that the foam mattresses in the two beds are replacements I put in because the originals have long since disintegrated with age as they always do. Everything else is in near mint condition. Nothing is broken, cracked or damaged in any other way. The lithos on the soda fountain, table, news stand, TV and mailbox are just about perfect. The box of chalk is unused and shows just a bit of shelf wear. The foam in the eraser is a replacement I put in. The all plastic Little People look just beautiful. These have nice clean face paint; there are no chew marks on any of them.
