Vintage Fisher Price

Saturday, May 03, 2008

I've been meaning to post about the vintage Fisher Price toys I ordered for Samuel on ebay! A few months ago, I had a flashback to my childhood of playing with this record player, and wondered how I could go about finding one for Samuel. It wasn't difficult, and I was able to find many on ebay for sale. Each of the five records have one song on each side, and after winding the music box, the song plays. There is a little slot behind the record player for storing the records. After bidding on the record player, I started finding other toys from my childhood, and bidding on those, too. We now have the Fisher Price vintage cash register, the Fisher Price Little People schoolbus, and the schoolhouse, complete with desks, children, and a teacher. I stopped there, but it was great to see these old toys still available, and I've found another way to get well-made, quality toys for Samuel. Also, if you're like me, and have a foggy recollection of a toy you loved, but aren't sure how to find it, go to a website like This Old Toy, which lists toys for any year back to the 1930's. A sure way to stir up childhood memories on a rainy day like today . . .

Fun! We had that record player too. I can't wait to look through the website. There's a treehouse I had as a child that I've wondered about lately, so I'll have to see if I can find it!

I loved that record player when I was a kid!!!

Just a word of warning about the Little People, depending on how old the set is. But if they're the skinny wood ones I grew up with (heads on a colored wooden cylinder, essentially -- no arms or clothes), they were discontinued because a number of small children choked to death on them. Samuel is probably fine, but be very careful with them around Juniper.

Enjoy your antiques! :)
