Rough Room Vintage Fisher Price Play Family #952 Yellow House Complete/Good-Very Good (L)
(More Photos Below)
Welcome to my Rough Room! Here you will find items that don't measure up to my standards of VG or above to be listed as one of my regular Vintage, Fisher Price Little People play sets. However, these sets still have infinite play value left and I don't have the heart to discard them. FYI, I do NOT spend time cleaning any bases, accessories, or Little People that are found in MY ROUGH ROOM. I leave that up to the buyer. However, I'm more than happy to send a list of cleaning suggestions to the new owner.
Items relegated to My Rough Room may exhibit any or all of the following "FLAWS:"
1. Faded, absent, torn, stained, or discolored lithos; some may also exhibit multiple bubbles, creases, marks, or rubs;
2. MAJOR CHEWS or PROMINENT teeth marks on some of the Little People or accessory pieces;
3. MAJOR rubs on facial features of Little People;
4. SIGNIFICANT paint wear on bodies of Little People;
5. Cracks or repaired cracks on plastic surfaces etc.; and
6. Abrasions/scratches, "dings," chips, and/or discolorations on plastic surfaces.
This ROUGH ROOM offering is for the CLASSIC #952 Fisher Price Play Family House play set. Produced from 1969-1979, this set originally consisted of 19 play pieces and the base. In 1980, Fisher Price re-configured this play set so that it resembled a brown, Tudor-style house. As mentioned above, this house does display several prominent "imperfections" and therefore does not qualify as being listed among my regular listings.
While I will not take the time to list all of the "flaws" noted on this House, I have provided you with numerous pictures that amply illustrate some of the issues found with this set. Most notable "flaws" include:
1. Missing or torn litho on the front of the house next to the right hand gable;
2. Some creasing of the front litho over the door;
3. A broken off Masonite corner on the left rear of the house;
4. Some bubbling on the rear litho along with a black mark of undetermined origin on the back garage wall above the Fisher Price logo;
5. Some staining on the litho above the garage and loosening of the litho on the garage end of the house. The latter can be easily rectified with an application of Rubber Cement.
The interior lithos are GORGEOUS (NR MINT); that's what makes it so sad when you see the broken Masonite corner. The plastic roof is free of any cracks, dents, repairs, abrasions etc. The plastic surfaces are bright and free of any fading.
The Little People Family are all Wood/plastic and range from EXC-NR MINT condition. Lucky, or Snoopy as he was called in this set, exhibits some teeth marks on his ears (VG). I've inserted new foam in all of the beds since the original foam had disintegrated. I have not glued these new "mattresses" in place in case the new owner wants to remove them. The stair case litho has a torn piece on the far left hand edge and some bubbling in several locations.
Here's your chance to obtain a #952 Yellow House "fixer-upper." I've heavily discounted this set to reflect the condition issues mentioned above. This particular set weighs 4 lbs., 14 oz. UNWRAPPED. My city and zip code are: Lafayette, IN 47905.

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.
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.
Bonanza's shipping calculator now offers Fed Ex Home Delivery as a shipping option, PLEASE consolidate all of your purchases on one Invoice so that you don't inadvertently get overcharged on shipping. Naturally, I refund any shipping overpayments in excess of 1.00 via PayPal. It's just easier on both of us if Bonanza's shipping calculator processes all of your purchases at once.
Packages traveling to Alaska or Hawaii will be shipped Parcel Post via the USPS. Insurance and delivery confirmation are required.
Once again, I’m more than willing to combine multiple purchases into one box whenever it is safe to do so to decrease your shipping costs. PLEASE combine your purchases on ONE INVOICE so that I don't get charged multiple transaction fees by PayPal. You're more likely to get overcharged on shipping if you pay for things separately plus it interferes with my ability to generate a shipping label through PayPal.
I'm more than willing to ship selected 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. Also, in case you are unaware, the USPS will be increasing their shipping rates to Canada on 5/31/15.
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.
