Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
|1972 Play Family Rooms #909
100%Complete in Box - Near Mint Condition
is the #909 Play Family Rooms made by Fisher Price in 1972-1974.
It is unusual to find this set complete and in such beautiful
condition as it was produced for only a couple of years and sold
exclusively through Sears. Each and every piece in this set is
original; I have had to make no substitutions. Here is where I'd
usually list the flaws I find in any toy I sell, but in this case I
can't find anything wrong. I don't like using the word "mint" to
describe a vintage playset, so I'll just say this is in "minty"
condition. I've check it over, and if there are any imperfections
I certainly don't see them.
The masonite base and walls show no nicks, dents, cracks or any other damage. The lithos have no tears, stains or bubbles in them. I'd be temped to say that this set was never used, but the box has wear so I guess it was. More about the box later.
The accessories are just about as nice as the building. Nothing shows wear of any sort. The lithos on the accessories all look brand new. The only thing to note is that the foam mattresses in the red beds are replacements I put in because the originals have disintegrated with age as always happens. The Little People have wood heads and bodies. These too are in great shape. The girl has both pigtails firmly attached and the dog has his ears. There are no chew marks on anything. Included is the always hard to find cloth accessory bag. This shows minor age discoloration, but there are no tears or holes in it. The drawstring is intact, and the printing on the bag is still very clear and vibrant.
The box is in only fair condition. It is complete with all flaps attached, but is does show wear. There are some tears on the back and the end where it was opened, and I see some small areas where the graphics have torn off. Here's a complete list of what you'll get:
Play Family Rooms base
Two red beds (replacement mattresses)
Green dining table with litho
Four matching green chairs (dot mark on the back)
White bathtub, sink and toilet
White scale with litho
Yellow kitchen sink, stove, refrigerator (working doors)
Red living room sofa and chair
Blue living room chair, coffee table and TV set with litho
Turquoise patio set: umbrella table, two chairs, wading pool and grill
Cloth accessory bag
As with all my toys, this set has been carefully cleaned before listing.
