There is nothing lovelier than real vintage toys with a story…and nothing better than the story being your own. My parents have just returned to me my Fisher Price A-frame (1974…older than me!) and Tree House…and they have sparked off long forgotten memories of contentedly lying on the floor playing ‘house’ with my little people. They are just as cute now as they were then (just look at those charming little collars on the triplets – gorgeous!).
I’ve seen there’s a big demand for vintage Fisher Price online with retro hunters paying big bucks for the sets or even just for a little person or bunk bed! I also doubt they are buying just for their kids and unlike me are not resisting a strong urge to line the little people up on a shelf for some retro home style. It’s made me think…which of Little G’s toys are real keepers? Which ones will I be tucking in the attic for when the time comes and she wants them back?
