Up, Up, & Away!

I got these new superhero little people today at Target. They'll go great with the Imaginext Batcave I got for Christmas. I love Fisher-Price imaginext toys. Dad says they are a cool mix of the old play family and adventure people sets.

It's a zoo around here

This is 2 Fisher-Price zoos. One is a Little People gift set from Kohl's I got for Christmas. The other is a vintage F-P Zoo I found at a Thrift Store. It was missing all of the pieces except for one orange gorilla. The zoo was 95 cents, and the gorilla was in a bag of old happy meal toys for 1.95. They must have thought it was an old happy meal toy. We are hoping to get parts for it at next years F-P Collector Club Convention.

Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas

Santa is getting ready to send toys to all the good little boys and girls. One of my gifts was this new Fisher-Price Little People Santa Gift Set from Kohl's. Around the Christmas Tree are some of my F-P ornaments- 3 of them are this years ornaments, the house, the clock and the fire truck. Here I was on Christmas morning with all my Fisher-Price presents. Hope you had a merry christmas!

Merry Christmas to one and all!

Here is my christmas tree with my Fisher-Price ornaments. Look closely and you will find miniatures of the School, the School bus, and at the very top the Fun jet, my tree's shining star. The School #923 has a teacher and a boy and a girl. I like the sticker designs and the ruler on the side. It even has a cute tiny bell that rings. I really like the school bus #192, it looks just like the real one with a dog and kids and a driver inside! The Fun Jet #183 is so fun, the real one holds 4 people but the little one has only two. My Little People were there to sing Christmas Carols while they watched the tree lighting. Merry Christmas!

More Sesame Street

This is a Fisher Price Sesame Street Clubhouse #937. The stickers are a little wrinkled but they are all there except for Big Bird's nest. I cleaned out the bad sticker with a wipe and a screwdriver. This toy was really dirty, with a lot of dirt and melted candy. We took it apart and cleaned it pretty good. The great part is the tire swing was not broken. I learned at the convention that the swing is usually broken so this was a good find. I almost have all the Sesame Street Little People. I need Susan and Oscar the grouch, and Herry Monster to complete my set. I found Prarie Dawn hidden away in the wonderful Castle I was given at the F-P Collector Club Convention. We are not sure If she was a gift or a stowaway but she now has a good new home. This is a great addition to the Sesame Street Playset.

Vroom, Vroom, Woo-Woo !

Here are my 2 mini-busses and a Fisher-Price Rescue Truck. One of the mini-buses(F-P 141) was a 69 cent thrift store find. The Rescue Truck was my Dad's and his brother's when they were little. My Nannie sent it tom me from California all the way across the country. The Rescue Truck was from the Adventure Peopl line of F-P toys. I have some new F-P Imaginext and Rescue Heroes toys which are sort of like this. I found the stretcher which is good for people to lay on if they are hurt at the F-P convention.

Cooking time with Fisher-Price food

Here is my Fisher-Price Kitchen Set #919. It might be really really really rare because it has the original box. This is my only F-P box so far. I also have some F-P Mc Donald's toys and some other Mc Donald's toys in these pictures. Also in these pictures is a F-P camping cook set- the blue plate set with red handle. I have 2 stoves but only one is in these pictures. The table cloth is neat because it could be used as a F-P pillowcase or just to store the stuff.

Let the good times roll!

I found this Fisher-Price Mc Donald's Happy Meal toy(More on that later) and this F-P Roly Poly Chime Ball # 165 at a DC area thrift store. The Roly Poly Ball was only 69 cents! The sticker says 1966. It is so cool- I love the colors of the ground sticker and I love the drawings of the mountains and trees.

Honey, I'm Home!

The Fisher-Price Play Family House is really fun. I found the house at a thrift store. It didn't have any parts, but by going to other thrift stores, and flea markets, and the convention we have been able to fill it up! I like the house to have lots of pieces, more than what it came with. So I added a bathroom and a queen size bed. I added the stairs from the blue and yellow house- which is a Hallmark ornament for this christmas. This brown house is just like the one Daddy wanted when he was little. I set it up with babies and a family with a Mom & Dad, and kids. Those are my favorite figures.

Fisher-Price Headquarters

When we went to East Aurora for the convention we went to the Fisher-Price Headquarters, which was fun and very intriguing, although we couldnt go in except for the toy store. At the store they had all new toys but they did have some left over "chunky" little people. I bought a souvenir cup and a key chain. I liked the street corner of Fisher-Price Street and Little People Lane, and the sign of the pull toy doggie. There was a beautiful fountain with a statue of a little boy. I put my new F-P toy boats in the fountain. The big F-P was really cool and looked like it was made out of rubies and jewels. After we saw the factory we went to the dinner where they gave me my castle! You can see that in another post. I might like to work there some day although it would have been more fun to work there in the old days when they made the original toys.

2011 Fisher Price Convention Talk

There was a talk on a classic shoe music box by a nice member named Ted. I got to put the parts together. It was fun when I did because I figured out how the toys were hand made.
I thought the whole day was great, seeing the toys having a good dinner and the people were so nice. When I got home I set up my toys around my new Castle and all the goodies I brought back from the show!

More on the 2011 Fisher Price Collectors Club Convention

The dinner was great- it was meat, potatoes, carrots & green beans and cake that was so delicious. The club gave me a pin &members gave me a Castle and a Lift & load set!

2011 Fisher-Price Collectors Club Convention

Hello again, I have a bunch of new things to share! This year I joined the Fisher-Price Collectors Club. On Saturday July 30 we went to the toy convention in East Aurora, NY. East Aurora is the home of Little People & the Fisher-Price Toy Company, and the home of the collectors club toy show & convention.
At the convention we looked around first and then bought toys. The club members were very very nice to me, and they gave me great fun toys , cute pull toys & little people playsets. Thank you to the collectors!
We found a lot of pieces to the Sesame Street set that we will share in another post and we found a marina with boats and other accesories. It is fun collecting all the parts and putting them together and the collectors club is a great place to find pieces and buildings. They even had a hospital.
