Vintage Fisher Price Precious Places #5152 Blue Ribbon Pony Stable COMPLETE/VG! Vintage Fisher Price Precious Places Village as shown in the 1989 Fisher Price Toy Fair Catalog; MORE PHOTOS BELOW In 1989, Fisher Price created a village of collectible houses, accessories, and people that could be manipulated via magnetic keys. They called this village Precious Places. The village was interconnected by special elevated sidewalks that animals, people, and accessories could traverse using the magnetic key. In addition, many of the buildings possessed special features that could be controlled utilizing these magnetic keys (e.g. turn on the lights, manipulate ceiling fans, rock cradles, open doors etc.). Each building and accessory set afforded its own unique key. Here for your consideration is one, complete building to this "magic world," the VHTF Precious Places #5152 Blue Ribbon Pony Stable. This set was only manufactured between 1989-1990. An engaging set, this offering includes a white plastic pony stable building with white paper "litho" siding on the outside walls. The front door consists of a split door--each half which can be opened via the accompanying pink magnetic key. One of the side walls has a magnified peep window to see an enlarged view of the interior of the stable. The inside walls have paper litho pictures of horses, trophys, ribbons, and hay. The back wall has a pink keyhole that can be unlocked using the magnetic key. The key is decorated by a litho that contains a couple of horse shoes and pink flowers that is in MINT condition. Besides moving the horse and pink cart on the sidewalk outside, this key also turns on the interior light that is powered by 2 AA batteries (batteries not included). Unlike many of these sets,the light works perfectly. Both the stable and the sidewalks are elevated so the child can insert the key underneath the stable and sidewalk to move the horse and cart. Other accessories included with this offering are: a SUPER RARE cream colored horse weathervane (VG-VG--a couple of dark dots on the weather vane), a HTF white sign with a horse litho on it (MINT), a HTF light blue bucket with moveable handle (MINT), a HTF pink basket-simulated pony cart (MINT), a blue harness that attaches to the cart (MINT), a tiny blue horse "brush" (MINT), a VHTF pink flower box with two bunches of pink flowers (MINT), a VHTF pink and white 3-sided stall (MINT), Princess Polly, a cream colored pony with white mane trimmed with pink flowers (EXC-NEAR MINT), two pieces of sidewalk with their respective supports (MINT), and the aforementioned pink magnetic key. In my opinion, this building is in VG condition with some creasing, yellowing, and loose lithos on the outside walls. I will be reanchoring the loose lithos using Rubber Cement so they shouldn't pose any future problems. The accessories are in NEAR MINT-MINT condition. Note: Due to the number of small parts and the presence of small magnets, these toys were designed for children ages 5 years and up. They DEFINITELY should not be given to children under age 3 as the parts are too small for them to easily manipulate and they pose a choking hazard. I will be thoroughly Q-tip cleaning this set prior to sending it to its new owners. My sets are IMMACULATE! This particular offering weighs 15 oz. UNWRAPPED. My location is Lafayette, IN (47905). Due to the size and weight of this offering, I will probably be sending it via the USPS. I'm more than willing to combine auctions to save the buyer on shipping. If you do elect to purchase multiple items, PLEASE do not send payment until I have a chance to manually combine your purchases onto one INVOICE. Otherwise, I get charged multiple PayPal transaction fees and you may be overcharged on shipping via Bonanza's shipping calculator. Furthermore, unless I can combine these purchases onto one INVOICE, it prevents me from printing out a shipping label using PayPal. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. 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 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 and Australia. Remember that shipping to Australia 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, Australian and Canadian customers will be responsible for any brokerage fees, Custom’s duties, or VAT’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 pxzj28633 txzj44 txzj85
