1969 Ferris Wheel #969
Complete - Very Good Restored Condition
All Wood Straight Sided Little People
Vintage Fisher Price Ferris Wheel - Complete

This is the first version of the #969 Musical Ferris Wheel made by Fisher Price in 1969-1972.  We know it's the first version because the seats on the ferris wheel have posts in them which were made to hold the original all wood straight sided Little People.  

The toy is complete with all the correct Little People and in fabulous condition.  Please note that some of the paper lithos on this toy are not originals.  They are professionally made replacements that I attached because the originals were lost or destroyed.  These include the lithos on both sides of the wheel itself, and those on the front and roof of the ticket booth.  Everything else on this toy  is original

There are no breaks or cracks in the ferris wheel.  The masonite base is complete with no bent or broken corners.  If you look at the last picture below, you will see a few light water marks on the green base litho.  These are truly much less noticeable in person, but I have enhanced the picture to give you a good look.  Even with these minor flaws, this is one of the cleanest base lithos I've ever come across. The rest of the lithos are in very good condition as well.  There are no tears or stains in any of them, and just a few bubbles as one would expect on a toy this old.  The all wood Little People are in great shape as well.  There are no chew marks on any of them.

Best of all, this ferris wheel is in perfect working condition.  When you wind it up the music plays, the wheel turns, and the angry boy operating the ride rocks back and forth.  The song played is "The Skaters' Waltz", and it plays at the correct speed.  The musical movement for this toy was made in Japan.

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