    No, but I can thank you, can't I? 🙂

    My mother still has that castle.

  • Jonster on March 7, 2013

    The more I read this blog, the more I realize how spoiled I was as a child. I had both the castle and the parking garage.

    OMG, I had the barn set (loved it!!), the A frame house and the schoolhouse. Ah, the benefits of being the youngest!

    That castle is awesome – I want that now so I could play with the horses & dragon!

  • Jamie on March 7, 2013

    The Little People. I had some of those and some of the houses and playsets as well.

    I had the school, the plane (not pictured) and the ship (also not pictured). My mother sold my school at a garage sale when I outgrew it. I picked up another one at an estate sale last summer. I also picked up the barn which I never had. I love that A frame house, I've never seen it before.

  • Melissa on March 11, 2013

    We had the A-frame! Mom took the clapper out of the doorbell, for obvious reasons.

  • Mats on March 12, 2013

    Didn't the barn make a mooing noise when the door was opened?

  • FilmFather on March 12, 2013

    I had all three sets down the right side of that picture (LOVED the A-frame and parking garage). We actually have the school from my wife's childhood in our current family playroom.

    Thank you, Fisher-Price – and thank you for reminding me about these! I still have my castle and school, but the others I had (A-frame, barn, etc.) are long-lost to the hand-me-down mists of younger relatives, alas.

    That castle, btw, withstood not only my play, but also my son's, and will probably outlast us both.

    I had all of them as a kid and have them all but the castle, and even more now. I have a growing collection… Love fisher price toys!!!
