Fisher-Price and Lego- 1980 Consumer’s Distributing Catalog

If there is any testament to the power of Fisher-Price toys, it’s the fact that many of the items featured here had serious longevity. I had the three bottom items from the Fisher-Price play family series, namely the Farm, the parking garage and the ferry boat before I went to kindergarten and they’re still available for sale when I’m in the fifth grade. That my friends represent some serious staying power in the toy aisle.

The Fisher-Price Adventure People really hit their stride by this time. I had just about outgrown the series by then but I remember really wanting that submarine and squid. However, the siren call of sci-fi-related toys had won me over. 


Here is our video on the Top 10 Fisher Price Adventure People Sets.

The 1980 assortment of Lego shows the early days of the mini-figure with the apple of my eye, Space Lego.

Another shot of the dreamy Space Lego boxes. My folks, for some reason just drew the line with this range. I had too much Lego according to them, so I had to settle for playing with the sets the weiner kid down the block had.

    I had the Aero-marine set that you wanted. One of my most used todays as a kid! Kept using them with my GI Joe team toys as well! I also had the Lego Space Command base set as well. So sweet.

    As kids, we had the Fisher Price Adventure People Construction Workers Figure Lot 2 Part Vtg 1974. The construction worker with the white t-shirt, and the dark hair, had the distinction of my brother trying to flush it down the toilet.
    The figure resisted the flushing and caused the toilet to overflow.
    My father fished it out and it survived. Durable indeed!
