Play Family Sesame Street (Fisher-Price, 1975)












In the running for greatest playset of all time. What’s Mattel’s Castle Grayskull but a variation on the same overall design?

    Absolutely one of the all-time greatest; as was about everything FP made in that era. Believe it or not, I just recently re-bought a complete playset for myself, because I missed that piece of my childhood!! (I don’t believe the yellow staircase in the 4th photo came with the set, either.) Awesome!

    I had a Sesame Street play set similar to this, but it had a thicker base below the buildings and there was an elevator you could lower down into the base. I used to put my pet mouse on the elevator and lower him down. He’d get off in the lower part of the enclosed play set and I’d bring the elevator back up with no mouse. Kind of like a magic trick. Then I’d lower it and wait for him to climb back on and bring him back up. One time, he wouldn’t get back on and my dad had to take the play set apart to get him out. He was none too happy. That was the end of my magic trick.
