1972 Play Family Airport #996
Complete in Box- Excellent Restored Condition

Vintage Fisher Price Airport - Complete

Vintage Fisher Price Airport - box front

This is the #996 Play Family Airport made by Fisher Price in 1972.  The set is 100% complete with all the correct pieces and in excellent "restored" condition.  The restoration consists of several paper lithos which are not originals.  They are professionally made reproductions, and as such they are in mint condition.

  These replacements are:
Yellow "Play Family Airport" litho
Two triangular "Baggage" lithos
Large flag litho
Travel Office and Snack Bar lithos

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 very small, light watermark on one of them, but it is barely noticeable and didn't even show up in the pictures.   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.  There are no breaks or cracks in any of them.  The large jet still makes the revving sound when you roll it. The door to the jet stays closed because I attached a very small piece of velcro on the outside edge of the door.  It opens and closes easily, but this little piece of velcro keeps it from flopping open 
when "in flight".  The lithos on both sides of the tail of the jet are in minty condition.  The six Little People have wood bodies and plastic heads except the blue girl.  She has a wood head as well as body.  These are all inbeautiful 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.

The box is not in great condition.  Honestly, it's a mess.  It's got several tears; some of them have been taped...most have not.  One inner end flap is missing, and several large pieces of the graphics have been torn off.  Still, it's kind of nice to have the box, even in this disreputable shape.  Here's a complete list of what you'll get:

Play Family Airport as described above
Large jet plane
Tug tractor
Jet fuel tanker
Two baggage carts; one yellow and one red
Two two-seater cars with luggage racks on back
Two round green suitcases
Two square yellow suitcases

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