Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
|1978 Play Family Nursery School
100% Complete in Box - Excellent Condition
is the #929 Play Family Nursery School made by Fisher Price in
1978-1979. It is 100% complete in the original box and in
remarkably good shape. As this set was made for 2 years only, it
is one of the harder sets to find....and even harder to find in this
excellent condition. The only real problem I see is that there is
some bubbling/rippling to the checkered floor litho. But even
this is far less prominent than you'll find on most Nursery School sets
you'll find available for sale.
The Nursery School base is otherwise in near mint condition. There are no breaks or cracks in the plastic. The lithos on all the walls are complete with no tears, stains or bubbles in them. The floor lithos do, as I mentioned above, have slight bubbling. But these too are complete with no tears or stains.
The cardboard roof, which reverses to show a playground, is the real surprise here. Most of these I've seen are torn or at least badly damaged at the fold in the cardboard. This one shows only the very slightest bit of wear in a few spots, but for the most part it is in great shape. A rare find indeed.
The accessories are all the correct ones for this set. All are in excellent condition with absolutely no damage to report. The lithos on the table, stove and easel are as perfect as you will ever see. Note: After taking the pictures, I did notice that one yellow chair is a lighter shade than the others. That has since been replaced so that all the chairs are the same color. Included are six plastic Little People. These are also in excellent condition with nice clear face paint. There are no chew marks on anything.
Finally, the box. This does show some wear. The main flaw is that there is a tear in the top left section on one side. Also, the top flap was partially torn away from the body of the box. Both these tears have been repaired with clear tape on the inside of the box. Please see the pictures below for details. Still, the box is complete with all flaps, and the front panel is in excellent shape so this should display very nicely. Here's a complete list of what you'll get:
Nursery School base
Removeable cardboard roof/playground
Five-passenger mini bus
Round craft table with four chairs
Blue easel with lithos on both sides
White kitchen sink and stove
White bathroom sink and toilet
Six all plastic Little People
As with all my toys, this set has been carefully cleaned before listing.
