 1973 Circus Train #991
First Version
Complete in Box - Near Mint
Vintage Fisher Price Circus Train - Complete in Box

This is the first version of the #991 Play Family Circus Train made by Fisher Price in 1973-1978.  Being the first version, it includes the gondola (flat bed) car and the giraffe - both of which were omitted in the later version.  The set is 100% complete in the box and in very close to mint condition.  I've checked it over very carefully, and I really can't find anything wrong with it.

The four train cars are as perfect as any I've ever seen.  There are no breaks or cracks in the plastic.  All the lithos are in fabulous condition.  There are no tears, stains or bubbles to be found in any of them.   The cage car door opens and closes properly and the yellow button on top of the engine makes its toot-toot sound.  All the cars connect properly, and the original pull string is attached.

The accessories are as nice as the train.  The animals are complete with the correct number of ears, tails, etc.  Nothing is broken or damaged in any other way.  The Little People have wood bodies and plastic heads as is correct for this set.  They are in great shape with nice clear face paint.  The only "damage" I find is a tiny scratch on the clown's nose.  There are no chew marks on any thing.

The box did not fare as well as the toy inside.  It has several dings and dents in it, but it is still complete with all flaps attached.  The graphics are very nice so this box would display fairly nicely.

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

Larger pictures are available upon request.
