Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
|1972 Play Family Airport #996
100% Complete - Excellent Condition
is the #996 Play Family Airport made by Fisher Price in 1972-1976.
The set is 100% complete with all the correct pieces and in
excellent condition. The only thing you really need to know
is that the two "baggage" lithos on the front are not original.
They are professionally made reproductions which I attached
because the originals were destroyed.
There are no breaks or cracks in the plastic. The two top runway lithos are original and in surprisingly good shape. I did find a few light dots on these, but they are not very noticeable. There are also some scratches and one small water stain on the runways. But neither runway litho is torn, marked, or bubbled. It's just normal wear from gentle play. I posted a large picture below. The red handle on top turns the helicopter blades and rotates the baggage carousel below.
The accessories are all original to this set and look almost new. Just a note: The body of the large jet is cream colored, as it should be, but the door is white. I've got no idea why this is, but I'll have to assume that it came that way from the factory, because it works perfectly. The jet still makes the revving sound when you roll it, and the door stays closed while "in flight". The lithos on both sides of the tail of the jet are in minty condition. The rest of the accessories are in minty shape. No problems to report on any of them.
The six Little People all have wood bodies and plastic heads. These are beautiful with nice clear face paint. The blond girl has both pigtails firmly attached. There are no chew marks on them.
