1971 Play Family School #923
100% Complete - Very Good Condition

Vintage Fisher Price School - Complete
This is the #923 Play Family School made by Fisher Price in 1971-1978.  It is 100% complete with all the originals and in very good played with condition.  However it's not perfect, and here's what I found:

The first thing to note is the the two Fisher Price lithos (on the roof and inside the flap) are not originals.  These are professionally made reproductions that I attached because the originals were destroyed.  The only real damage I see is on the base lithos.  The floor litho inside the school shows some water staining and a faded streak.  Outside the building, the masonite base shows evidence of former water damage.  There are some dark spots and lines on the masonite, indicative of moisture at some time.  Also the green grass litho around the school shows some wear.....likely due to water as well.  See the last three pictures below for details of the water damage.

So this is not to be considered as "collectors' quality".  But it is still pretty terrific shape for a toy this old.  The School building is solid with no breaks or cracks in it.  The lithos on both the inside and outside walls look perfect, as do the lithos on the bell tower and the teacher's desk.  The hands on the clock move, and the bell in the tower rings.  The masonite base, although water stained, is solid with no bent or broken corners.  Oh, I did notice a couple of tiny black dots on the fold down green chalkboard.  I don't know what caused these, but I can't remove them.  The chalkboard is otherwise clean and unmarked.

The accessories are all original to this set, and are in fabulous condition.  There are no breaks or cracks in any of them.  The box of chalk shows shelf wear, but the chalk inside is unused.  The foam in the original eraser is a replacement I put in because the original foam has long since disintegrated.  The five Little People are all wood (heads and bodies).  They are in lovely condition with no chew marks on them.  The blue girl has both pigtails intact.  Here's a complete list of what you'll get:
