Judy's Vintage Fisher Price Toys
|1963 Junior Circus #902
Complete in Canister - Near Mint
is the #902 Junior Circus made by Fisher Price in 1963-1970. The
set is 100% complete with all the original parts. The only thing
missing is the instruction sheet. Everything is in very good to
excellent condition, but it's not perfect. Here's what I found:
First, the monkey's pipe cleaner tail is not original. It's a replacement I put in because the original had come off. There is some minor paint wear on the ends of the red ladders. This is quite normal for this toy as the ladders were put into and taken out of the yellow center ring many times. Also, there are some dents in the red tin lid, but this does not affect how well the canister closes. Finally, I found some scratches on the red ball that fits on the seal's nose. There is also a black indented dot on it. It looks like someone was poking at it with a pencil. Please see the close up pictures below.
Otherwise there's nothing to criticize here. All of the performers are in excellent condition. None are broken, and the paper lithos on both sides of each piece are complete. The plastic legs (and arms) on all the performers are nice and tight so that they can be posed however you like. There is no damage to any of the other accessories.
The canister looks terrific with perfect lithos all around and a well fitting tin top. Here's a complete list of what you'll get:
Canister with tin lid
Monkey, Tiger, Dog, Giraffe, Elephant, Ringmaster,
Clown, Pony, Seal, Dog and Bear
Two red wood ladders
Two yellow ladder connectors
Two yellow wood poles
Black wood tub
Red ball for seal's nose
As with all my toys, this set has been carefully cleaned before listing.
