When I was a child, one of my favorite toys were my Fisher-Price sets. I remember spending hours playing with the school house, the farm set, the camping set, and the towns with all the people. My parent's still have the Fisher-Price sets, and I hope to "inherit" them someday. I am happy to let you know that Fisher-Price is celebrating 50 Years! For the brand’s 50th birthday, officially marked on March 21, Fisher-Price is planning a year-long celebration including commemorative play sets.
Do you remember the Fisher-Price Farm set that had big doors on the front, that when opened, you heard a cow mooing? You could hide your chicken in the hayloft? Now, our kids can enjoy a farm set with the new Little People Play ‘n Go Farm play set, which has been designed to reflect the classic look of the original 1968 Play Family Farm! The Little People Play 'n Go Farm play set is complete with retro-style figures! The play set includes farmer, sheep and cow figures, tractor vehicle, three connectible fence pieces and water trough play piece. Everything stores inside the collectible tin take-along barn that features a handle and open/close top. This makes it great for kids to take their play set places. (SRP $17.49/suited for ages 1-4 yrs.)
Do you remember the Fisher-Price School house? You opened the side and could peek into the school room. The roof was magnetic for your numbers and letters, and you had a built in chalk board. There were green desks, swing set and a merry-go-round.
Play ‘n Go School is designed to resemble the original Little People School House first introduced in 1971. The play set includes retro-styled teacher and pupil figures, dog, teacher’s desk and chair, student desk and spinning merry-go-round for recess. (SRP $17.49/suited for ages 1-4 yrs.)
My kids have so much fun with their Fisher-Price Play 'n Go sets! They like that they can store all their people/props in their own tin. These sets are easy to clean up and store. I like that the pieces are big enough so there is no worry of choking. I think the dog and the merry-go-round is my favorite. Another thing I like, is my children can use their imagination with play, as I did when I was younger. They play very well together when they each have their own set. They also like to visit each other with their play people and animals.
