Vintage Fisher Price Little People #938 Sesame St. House 100% Complete with Chalk and Eraser/NEAR MINT! (P) Vintage Fisher Price Play Family #938 Sesame St. House Complete w/Chalk and Eraser/NEAR MINT! (P) (More photos below) Here is a CLASSIC Fisher Price Little People #938 Sesame Street House for your inspection! Manufactured between 1975-76, this play set is getting harder and harder to find, especially in this condition (NEAR MINT). I've painstakingly scoured the United States to assemble this "TREASURE." This particular offering is 100% COMPLETE with its original chalk and eraser. The plastic handle, locking mechanism, and the rest of the plastic roof and base are completely intact. Upon close scrutiny, I can spy the following "imperfections" on this plastic base: 1. One, light, hair-line scratch on the brown trim on the right side of the roof on the orange side of the house; and 2. Two or three light scratches on the brown roof on the green side of the house. These scratches are largely invisible since none of them have permeated the color of the roof. It's only when you get up close and search for them under a strong light that you can see them. I believe an application of Armor All wipes along with a gentle buffing will help minimize the scratches even further. All of the plastic surfaces are devoid of any chips, "dings," breaks, cracks, discolorations, stress fractures, or fading. They're in wonderful shape (EXC-NEAR MINT). It's unbelievable that this base is 41 years young! With the exception of the main Fisher Price litho, all of the EXTERIOR lithos are in MINT condition! The main Fisher Price litho presents with four bubbles and two intermittent, vertical hair-line creases. The litho displays no soiling, stains, marks, tears, or rubs. I would categorize it as being in EXC-EXC condition. The INTERIOR WALL and FLOOR lithos are virtually FLAWLESS (NEAR MINT)!! Specifically, ALL of the INTERIOR WALL lithos are free of any marks, rubs, bubbles, creases, stains, punctures, fading etc. The floor lithos, with the exception of the rug litho in the living room, are likewise in MINT condition. After repeated scrutiny, I can only find one, 1" L x 1/16" W scratch on the front of the rug litho. I've lowered my overall rating of these INTERIOR lithos from MINTY MINT to NEAR MINT solely based on this one light scratch. The painted edges of this piece evidence only minor paint loss. I can only detect paint loss on the inner margin of the lower green painted borders next to Mr. Hooper's store. Otherwise, the paint is intact. Most of these play sets exhibit a significant amount of paint loss on both sides of the wooden walls that meet in the middle. Some even manifest some cracking within the masonite trim. This one DOES NOT show any signs of cracking. This base has definitely lived a "charmed life." Other than some residual chalk embedded within the chalkboard and one tiny scratch (e.g. @1/8"L x 1/16" W), this chalkboard is in EXC-NEAR MINT condition. I'm being super "nit-picky" here because I don't want any of my customers to be disappointed by their purchase from me. This AWESOME play set comes with all of the following pieces: 1 RARE brown Bert bed with @90% of its original foam (EXC-NEAR MINT-- as collectors often put a premium on the original foam, I will not be removing it unless the buyer requests it; if the latter is the case, I will remove the original foam and replace it with a firm, tan foam mattress; I will not be gluing this mattress in place in case the new owner wishes to remove it); 1 RARE brown Ernie bed with @ 80% of its original foam (EXC--once again, as stated above, I will not be removing this foam unless the new owner requests me to do so; I'm happy to replace the deteriorating foam with a brand new, tan colored mattress); 1 HTF lunch counter (NEAR MINT--one, pin-head size amount of edge wear on the lower left hand side of the litho; the colors are bright and robust); 1 HTF news stand (MINTY MINT); 1 VHTF Sesame St. lamp post and sign (MINTY MINT); 1 HTF gold table with pork chop litho (NEAR MINT--MINT--litho fully intact, brightly colored, and smoothly attached to the plastic surface; there is the hint of one or two tiny bubbles on the litho; however, you really need to be looking for these to appreciate them; I basically found these by holding the table up to the light and rotating it in the light; otherwise, they are not visible to the naked eye nor are they found via touch); 1 VHTF brown Grover TV (MINTY MINT); 1 VHTF brown nest for Big Bird (MINTY MINT); 1 VHTF brown sofa (EXC--couple of faint scratches on the rear of the couch); 1 RARE brown coffee table (MINT---Note how the brown coffee table matches perfectly with the sofa; due to differing amounts of brown dye put into some of these plastic pieces, the colors can vary dramatically---from a true, dark chocolate brown, to a light brown, to a reddish brown. The coffee table, beds, tv, and sofa are all light brown and match perfectly); 1 VHTF red fire hydrant on gray base (MINT); 2 HTF gold captain's chairs with triangles on the back of the chairs; (EXC--one with some light wear on the front edge of the seat; only found this through touch; the other is in MINT condition); 1 HTF green and white Sesame St. Sanitation Truck with Fisher Price written on wheels (EXC-NEAR MINT--faint surface scratches and scuffs on the top edges of the truck bed; amazingly, the hub caps on the wheels are totally free of any rust; 1 VHTF blue mailbox with litho (VG-EXC--litho is intact with very minor edge wear on the corners of the litho; one, faint, 1/4" L x 1/16" W scratch on the rear of the mailbox); 1 RARE Sesame St. ladder (EXC--some scratches and scuffs on both ends of the ladder; these are NOT chews); 1 RARE box of original FP chalk (MINT---all 3 pieces of chalk are intact and have never been used; box is in MINT condition as well); and 1 RARE original Fisher Price eraser with all of its original foam (MINT---NOTE: this eraser appears like it was never used; it does not appear to be suffering from any dry rot; instead, the foam is firm and bright). This set also contains all of the beloved Sesame Street Little People characters: 1 HTF Gordon (MINTY MINT); 1 HTF Susan (EXC--just now noticed a teensy scratch to the left of her mouth; didn't notice it until I held her up within 3" of my eyes and rotated her in the light); 1 HTF Mr. Hooper (EXC-NEAR MINT--sharp facial features; all white hair tendrils are present and intact; some minor edge wear on the bottom back side of the figure); 1 HTF Cookie Monster ( MINTY MINT---one of best Cookie Monsters I've ever seen); 1 HTF Bert (MINTY MINT; ABSOLUTELY no chews on hair tendrils!!!!); 1 HTF Big Bird (NEAR MINT-- some slight roughness to the underside of his beak; NOT chews; NOTE: the bright pink eyelids on this Big Bird; it's RARE to find a Big Bird with this quality of eyelids); 1 HTF Ernie (EXC--two tiny scratches on white area of left eye and one, pin-head size rub on the edge of the white area for his right eye); and 1 VHTF Oscar in trash can with handle (MINTY MINT). Sesame St. characters of this quality (e.g. Ernie, Bert, Susan, Gordon, Big Bird, Mr. Hooper, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch) can easily command up to 60-80.00 on the internet. I've done all the work for you. I've also paired these figures with the best accessories I could find. You'll see many sets out there but they are NOT configured according to the original Fisher Price specifications. Please see www.thisoldtoy.com for additional information. For example, two of the living areas (e.g. Ernie Bert's bedroom, the kitchen, Big Bird's bedroom) are supposed to be the same color (e.g. all gold or all brown) with the other room being the alternate color. Many sets being offered on other e-commerce sites ignore these conventions and use all kinds of color combinations or furniture that did not originally come with this set-- thereby camouflaging the original pieces that are missing. I've tried to be as comprehensive in my description as possible. I've also included numerous photos for this FANTASTIC play set---one ANY rabid Fisher Price COLLECTOR WOULD COVET AND/OR FOR SOME LUCKY CHILD. This is the "set of a lifetime." Don't let it pass you by! I have already thoroughly Q-tip cleaned this set using a variety of cleaning products (e.g. anti-bacterial Dawn, Goo Gone, Soft Scrub, Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser, Crayon Away, Armor All wipes etc.) along with a child's toothbrush, toothpicks, and Q-tips. This set is IMMACULATE! All you need to do is unpack the set and set it up for display or play. Remember, this Vintage Fisher Price Little People play set is NOT included in the recent Fisher Price recall of toys manufactured in China. This play set was manufactured in the good ole' U.S.A. in 1975-76!!!! It's 41 years young and still exemplifies Fisher Price's reputation for imaginative, durable toys. Why take a chance on buying a new toy that may contain unacceptable levels of lead or cadium in them when you can purchase a CLASSIC toy like this that was produced with pride and integrity in the U.S.A.? Purchasers should refrain from allowing children under 3 years of age to play with these toys without adult supervision or to offer these toys to children who may be still mouthing their toys. This particular base is HEAVY (approximately 6 1/2 lbs. UNWRAPPED). My zip code is 47905 (INDIANA). I've been finding that Fed Ex Home Delivery is running up to 33% cheaper than the USPS or UPS ground for larger, heavier packages or those traveling longer distances. To ship Fed Ex, I need a residential, not a P.O. Box, plus a contact phone number (e.g. home, cell, or work place). I'M MORE THAN WILLING TO COMBINE MULTIPLE PURCHASES INTO ONE SHIPMENT WHEN IT IS SAFE TO DO SO. ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU COMBINE YOUR PURCHASES IN YOUR SHOPPING CART BEFORE YOU PAY FOR THEM. OTHERWISE, I MAY BE CHARGED MULTIPLE PAYPAL AND BONANZA TRANSACTION FEES. IT ALSO MAKES IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR ME TO PRINT OUT SHIPPING LABELS USING PAYPAL. See my other listings for more great items! Preferred payment is via PayPal. Payment is expected within 5 business days. 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 rateโ€”-whether itโ€™s the USPS (First Class or Priority), Fed Ex, or UPS. I DO NOT PAD MY SHIPPING COSTSโ€”-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. Iโ€™ve been finding Fed Ex has been running @33% cheaper than the USPS 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 parcelโ€™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. Packages traveling to Alaska or Hawaii will be shipped Parcel Post via the USPS. Insurance and delivery confirmation are required. Iโ€™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 combine your purchases on ONE INVOICE. If you pay for these items separately, I get charged multiple transaction fees by PayPal and Bonanza 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. Iโ€™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. Also, Canadian customers will be responsible for any brokerage fees, Customโ€™s duties, or VATโ€™s imposed by your governments. 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. txzj pxzj2038 txzj71
