Top Ten Fisher Price Little People Sets
If you're a kid of the 1970s, chances are the sight of the limbless cherubic Fisher Price Little people (or Play Family) will bring a smile to your face.
These simple (and seemingly indestructable!) toys were the deserved kings of the preschool aisle during the polyester decade.
Here are the top ten Fisher Price Little People Sets:
10) Sesame Street Clubhouse
Ok, so there was never a clubhouse on Sesame Street, nobody cared because this set was jam packed with features like a trap door, revolving door and a tire swing. Not to mention interesting graffiti professing David's love for Maria, which must make Luis crazy!
9) Parking Garage
While deceptively simple in it's design, the repetitive motion of parking cars and then sliding them down the ramp could fill hours to a young one. I'll admit to still getting depressed that no parking garage i've ever been too has had an elevator for my car, someday.....
8)Play Family Camper
The play family camper with it's boat and squishy foam beds was hours of fun but the one thing that rocked my world as a kid was the toilet. Seriously, none of my other toys went to the bathroom.
Kids and Fireman will always have a strong bond, extra kudos for FP making their dog character into a Dalmatian for this set.
6) The Village
#6 is the village, see what I did there? No? Ok. This set gave you a whole universe to explore, it was sort of a sample for the FP little people world which even included a barber shop for people that had little to no hair...
5) Circus Train
Clowns terrify me to this day however this set rocks because it adds so many cool animals to the play family universe, it's should be on this list for the elephant alone..
Airports and Airplane related movies were all the rage back in the middle 70s. A super fun toy on it's own, I often used mine to re-enact "airport 75" type movies I had no business watching in the first place.
3) Farm Play set
The door went Moo. It was 1974 and that was AMAZING. Seriously I'm still not sure how they pulled that off! Sorcerers!
2) Sesame Street
My personal favourite, it should come as no shock this is in the top three. Launched at a time when Sesame Street was becoming a household word, this set took Christmas morning by storm, I played with my set for years (probably too long in all fairness) and so did my kids, I will profess to getting very choked up when I put this set away for my future grand children.
This fantasy themed play set was also loaded with cool features including trap doors, a dungeon and of course that Dragon. My friend's little sister had one of these, I was too old to actually play next to her but dammit, I wanted to...
