Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
|1973 Play Family Village #997
100% Complete - Fabulous Condition
is the #997 Play Family Village made by Fisher Price in 1973-1977.
The set is 100% complete with all the original pieces and in
truly beautiful condition. However I did have to replace one
of the lithos on this set with a professionally made reproduction.
This is the checkered floor litho inside the Barber Shop. Everything
else on these two
buildings is completely original.
The set consists of two separate buildings connected by the off-white bridge. There is really no damage to report on any of these pieces. There are no breaks or cracks in the plastic. The lithos on both buildings, inside and out, are in very near mint condition. The only thing I see is that there is a small water stain on the floor litho inside the Post Office. Everything on this set works like new. The red garage door rolls up and down smoothly as does the white door on the fire station. The handle on top of the fire station makes a siren type of noise when you turn it. The bridge attaches securely to both buildings. The traffic light on the bridge changes color when you turn the red knob above it.
The accessories are as nice as the buildings. They are all here, and all pieces are original to this set. The one thing to note is that the foam mattress in the bed is a replacement I put in because the original has long since disintegrated with age as they always do. There is no damage to any of the accessories. The lithos inside the phone booth and on the yellow grill are perfect. All six mail pieces are included as well. The Little People have wood bodies and plastic heads....except for the white dentist and barber, which only came in all plastic. The dog is all plastic as well. All the Little People are in excellent shape with nice clear face paint. There are no chew marks on anything in this set.
