Vintage Fisher Price Pick-Up and Peek #523 Animals and Their Babies Wooden Peg Puzzle Vintage Fisher Price Pick-Up and Peek #523 Animals and Their Babies Puzzle Here is a HTF, vintage Fisher Price Pick-Up and Peek #523 Animals and Their Babies wooden puzzle. Featuring a myriad of woodland creatures, this puzzle complements the interests of many preschoolers and their favorite books. Produced from 1982-84, this puzzle consists of 7 single pieces, each of which comes equipped with a yellow peg. Given that these puzzle pieces do not interlock, this makes an ideal first puzzle for young children. The pegs assist young children in removing and replacing the puzzle pieces in their proper holes. In addition, when each piece is removed, an underlying picture appears showing that animal's offspring in different settings. The lithos are incredibly detailed, full of color, and appealing to young children. These underlying lithos also help the child develop their emerging picture matching skills. In fact, Fisher Price acknowledges this puzzle was designed for children ages 18 months to 4 years. While this particular puzzle evidences some wear, I would still consider it to be in VG-VG condition. Imperfections include: 1. Some minor edge wear and some small chips on a few of the puzzle pieces; 2. Some minor rubs to a few of the underlying lithos; 3. Some small brown spots on the raccoon litho; 4. Some remnants of a black magic marker that was used to label not only the back side of the puzzle pieces, but also the lithos themselves. I successfully removed most of the marks on the lithos but if one looks carefully, there are still traces of this marker on the fawn, rabbit, squirrel, and opposum lithos; these are not readily apparent; you probably wouldn't even have noticed anything if I hadn't disclosed their presence. One literally has to hold the puzzle up to within 3" of your eyes and rotate it in the light to perceive these marks. I also attempted to remove the numerals from the back side of the puzzle pieces with Goo Gone; however, these marks have permeated the wood and I was unable to remove them; please see my photo showing the back side of the puzzle pieces. When the Goo Gone dried, all that remained was the mark. My photo was taken while the piece was still wet; 5. Some edge wear on the back side of the puzzle along with one, small red stain. Although not prominent in my photos, this puzzle is stamped on the back, "Made in Malta for Fisher-Price Toys, copyright 1971, 1972, 1973, 1977, 1979, 1980, 1982, The Quaker Oats Co." This is a darling puzzle and one that promotes a number of early language- based concepts (e.g. up/down, on/off, beside/next to, over/under, on top, upside down, in/out), action vocabulary (e.g. hopping, chewing, throwing, swimming, tickling, flying, climbing, eating), and attributes (e.g. sticky, wet/dry). It's one that is sure to delight young preschoolers. This particular puzzle weighs approximately 13 oz. UNWRAPPED. My location is Lafayette, IN (47905). I'm more than happy to combine multiple purchases to save the buyer on shipping. All I ask is that the buyer contact me before sending payment so that I can provide the correct shipping amount and combine all of your purchases on one invoice. Otherwise, the buyer may be inadvertently overcharged on shipping by Bonanza's calculator and I may be charged multiple PayPal transaction fees. Back side of puzzle pieces labelled with permanent marker; note: puzzle piece in upper middle position; piece is still wet with Goo Gone. PayPal is the preferred manner of payment. All payments are due within 5 business days of the listing's conclusion. I also accept bank-issued Cashier's Checks and Postal Money Orders. Due to my bank's policies, I am unable to ship your item until these forms of payment clear my bank (usually within 3 business days). Please contact me if you would like to pay via a Cashier's Check or a Postal Money Order. Shipping Policy The price listed is for the item itself. The total amount due will be the purchase price of the item the ACTUAL shipping cost to deliver your item to you. All shipping costs or extra fees (in the case of Canadian shipments) are the responsibility of the buyer. I will do everything in my power to find you the cheapest shipping rate—-whether it’s the USPS (First Class, Parcel, or Priority), Fed Ex, or UPS. I DO NOT PAD MY SHIPPING COSTS—-NEVER HAVE AND NEVER WILL! I SHIP WITHIN 48 HOURS OF A CLEARED PAYMENT. I primarily utilize Fed Ex Home Delivery for items exceeding 5 lbs. in weight, measuring greater than 12 inches in any dimension, or traveling longer distances. I’ve been finding Fed Ex has been running @33% cheaper than the USPS (including Parcel Post) and UPS Ground. FYI, another benefit of using either Fed Ex or UPS is that their quote includes up to 100 worth of FREE insurance. Additional amounts of insurance may be purchased for a nominal fee (that is much less than the USPS). Fed Ex also provides automated tracking updates re: your parcel’s whereabouts directly to your personal e-mail account. In order to ship Fed Ex (or UPS for that matter), I MUST have a residential or work place address, NOT a P.O. Box number, as well as a home or cell phone. Otherwise, they will not accept the shipping paperwork or transport your item. Since Bonanza's shipping calculator does NOT offer Fed Ex Home Delivery as a shipping option, PLEASE DO NOT SEND PAYMENT UNTIL I HAVE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO MANUALLY CHECK THESE RATES AND INSERT THEM INTO YOUR INVOICE. Otherwise, the shipping calculator may overcharge you. Packages traveling to Alaska or Hawaii will be shipped Parcel Post via the USPS. Insurance and delivery confirmation are required. I’m more than willing to combine multiple purchases into one box whenever it is safe to do so to decrease your shipping costs. Once again, PLEASE wait to check out until I can combine your purchases on ONE INVOICE and can calculate their combined shipping rate via Fed Ex. If you pay for these items separately, I get charged multiple transaction fees by PayPal plus you get over-charged on your shipping. Of course, I will refund you any amount over 1.00 that you've overpaid on shipping. However, it's easier on both of us if you wait until I can send you the correct amount. I’m more than happy to ship selected play sets to Canada. Remember that shipping to Canada can be quite expensive so please contact me for a shipping quote before you purchase an item. I will attempt to find the cheapest shipping rate possible. Canadian customers will be responsible for any brokerage fees, Custom’s duties, or VAT’s imposed by your government. I am not responsible for these charges. Insurance is required for all international shipments. Last, but not least, I offer a 10% discount for orders totaling 125.00 or more. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO RETURNS ARE ACCEPTED. I have attempted to bring any noted "imperfections" to your attention prior to your purchasing the item. However, I'm only human. If I have missed something or you have a problem with your purchase, please contact me prior to leaving feedback. Customer satisfaction is #1 for me. I try to provide outstanding service, high quality merchandise, and secure and expedient shipping. Feedback is important and I will be happy to leave you feedback once I know everything has arrived safely and that you are pleased with your purchase. Leaving me feedback helps me gauge how well I'm doing and also serves the Bonanza community by directing them to sellers who proffer outstanding merchandise and service. txzj pxzj2038 txzj71
