They all have their original factory sheen, no dirt or soiling, no chews, no melt marks -- plain and simple, they do not look as if they ever saw any play at all. Upon inquiry, I learned the set had in fact been owned by a little girl -- and again, not being sexist, but we all know that generally speaking girls took better care of their toys than boys, so that could be part of the reason the pieces were so wonderfully preserved. The tin litho store front and bunk house are also near perfection, with no rust, no brown foxing spots, all tabs are fully intact and no multiple bends -- I really can't say enough about how nice the contents are. Now, as you can see the box is complete, but has soiling, one corner is split out and another partially split, tears, nicks, etc.
But for its age still not all that bad at all in my opinion. There are no instructions or envelopes. I do not know for sure how many parts came with this set, and couldn't find anything on the internet that told me, but from my general (and limited) knowledge of other play sets, it sure seems like this one MIGHT be complete (but I do NOT know for sure -- you will have to be the judge of that). If you want more photos I'll do my best to accommodate, just let me know. Unless you can find a brand new old set, I challenge you to find one with better condition playing pieces.
I know it may sound like a cliche, but this probably really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! If you don't live in Kansas, you can go ahead and pay or wait for my invoice, whichever you want. In most cases I will send you an invoice within an hour of the time the sale ends. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior. If there are props or such in the photo, they are not included in the sale rulers, display shelves, coins to show size, mannequin heads, etc.
Last of all, this is a second job for me, and I have a job during the day, as well as a family, so I will get back to you as quickly as I can. So, it is a good idea to not wait until the last minute to contact me with questions.
