1973 Circus Train #991
Complete - Excellent Condition

Vintage Fisher Price Circus Train - Complete
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 and in beautiful condition.  I've checked it over very carefully, and the only flaw I can find is very slight corner wear to the "headlight" litho.  See last picture for details.

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. The bllue plastic pull string is a replacement that I took off another vintage Fisher Price toy.

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.  I did notice that the giraffe's neck joint is quite loose, but as you can see in the pictures, he is still able to hold his head up.  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 that the clown's nose appears to have been repainted.  There are no chew marks on anything.

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

Larger pictures are available upon request.
