Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
|1972 Play Family Airport #996
Complete - Excellent Condition
is the #996 Play Family Airport made by Fisher Price in 1972-1976.
set is 100% complete with all the correct pieces and in
excellent condition. The only thing you really need to know
is that the "Play Family Airport" litho on front is not original.
It is a professionally made
reproduction which I attached because the original was destroyed.
The Airport is in fabulous condition. There are no breaks or cracks in the plastic. The two top runway lithos are original and nearly perfect. I did find a couple of very minor marks on these, but they are barely noticeable. See last picture below. The red handle on top turns the helicopter blades and rotates the baggage carousel below.
The accessories are in wonderful condition as well. They are all original to this set, except perhaps the two square brown suitcases. These should be yellow, but I found this set with brown ones instead. They are definitely Fisher Price suitcases and are exactly as they should be except for the color. There are no breaks or cracks in any of the accessories. The large jet still makes the revving sound when you roll it. The door to the jet stays closed while "in flight" The lithos on both sides of the tail of the jet are in minty condition. The six Little People all have wood bodies and plastic heads. These are all in beautiful condition with nice clear face paint. The blond girl has both pigtails firmly attached. There are no chew marks on them. The rest of the accessories are in minty shape. No problems to report on any of them.
