Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
| 1971 Play Family School
Complete in Box with Bonus - Excellent Condition
is the #923 Play Family School made by Fisher Price in 1971-1978.
The set is 100% complete with all the original parts and in
truly excellent condition. However there are a couple of
things to note:
The big Fisher Price litho on the roof is not original. It's a professionally made replacement that I attached because the original was destroyed. The other flaw is that the front right corner of the base is "bumped"; that is, it is slightly bent up as can be seen in the last picture below. It is not broken or about to break off, but as you can see, it does not sit completely flat on the table.
For the rest, the building is just about perfect. There are no breaks or cracks in the plastic. The masonite base is excellent (aside from the "bump") with no broken corners. The lithos, inside and out are in beautiful condition. The fold-down chalkboard is clean and unmarked. The bell in the tower rings, and the clock hands over the front door turn.
The accessories are as nice as the building. They are all here including the hard to find original box of chalk and eraser. The black foam in the eraser is a replacement as the original foam was all worn away. Nothing is broken or damaged in any other way. The Little People have wooden heads and bodies. These too are in great shape. There are no chew marks on anything. Bonus: The original set came with 7 extra letters. I'm including 20 with this set. I have them, and I don't need them....so they will go to you.
The box is in surprisingly good condition. It's got a few dents and dings in it, but many fewer than you'd expect to find on a cardboard box this old. It's very sturdy with all flaps still attached, and the graphics are excellent. The outer flaps on the opened end of the box are curved slightly outward, as I'm sure you can see in the pictures below. You can tape this closed if you prefer and open the other end. I've chosen not to do that, and will leave that option up to the buyer.
