Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
|1974 Play Family A-Frame #990
Complete - Very Good Condition
is the #990 Play Family A-Frame set made by Fisher Price in 1974-1976.
It is 100% complete with all the original parts and in very good
played with condition. However it is not perfect, and here's what
First thing for you to know is that the big Fisher Price litho on the outside front of the house is not original. I've replaced it with a professionally made reproduction because the original was destroyed. The same applies to the Fisher Price litho inside, just under the handle. As for damage, well the first thing I noticed is that the outside of the fold down flap is slightly different in color from the rest of the building. This is quite common on this set, and I honestly don't know if it came this way from the factory or if some sort of fading has occurred over the years. Your guess is as good as mine. The only actual damage I find is that there is some sort of black stain on the lower left hand corner of the front of the house. A close up picture of this is posted below. I have no idea what this is, but I do know that it won't come off. I've tried every trick I know to remove it.
Now some good news. The set is really in very nice shape. The building is solid with no breaks or cracks in it. Lithos are all in excellent condition, both the originals and the replacements. The fold down patio connects securely to the building. The handle and latch work just as they should so that the house stays closed for carrying or storage. The sliding "glass" doors on the sides work, and the bell rings.
On to the accessories: Everything here looks just fabulous. The only thing to note is that the foam mattresses in the beds are replacement I put in because the originals have disiintegrated with age as they always do. Everything else is original. Nothing is damaged in any way. The lithos on the table and grill are just about perfect. The Little People are all plastic and in very good condition as well. There are no chew marks on anything. Here's a complete list of what you'll get:
A-Frame house as described
Two sets of bunk beds (replacement mattresses)
Two yellow captains' chairs
Two yellow lounge chairs
White picnic table with litho
Two white benches
Red grill with litho
Red four-passenger jeep
Plastic Mom, Dad, Boy, Girl and Dog
As with all my toys, this set has been carefully cleaned before listing.
