Walt Disney's Disneyland playset made only for Sears one year - 1961 - by Marx. This playset is BIG - the box alone is 32inches x 28 inches x 8 inches!!
It is also very unique - Marx loved to re-use pieces from one playset to another - but this playset required many unique pieces (and molds) used only for this playset. One of the picnic tables with an umbrella which is set in Fantasyland behind the castle.
One of the flying discs for the flying saucer (a re-used part by Marx) - I believe there should be 2 and there is only one. The saddest thing is the Merry Go Round - the poles on the horses are short because they are broken off on three of them. I used a coffee straw to restore them to their original height.
It matches the color exactly. The roof and the base do not attach together - looks like someone tried to glue it. Also, there is a small hole in the roof of the merry go round where one of the poles mounts underneath.
The pegs on two of the Dumbos are a little short - but they are long enough to mount to the ride beams. I didn't want to snap them in altogether in case you want them to come apart. The stage coach front axle with the horse attachment has damage - this is a really fragile piece - so no surprise there. The roof of the omnibus has a slight bow which makes it dangerous to snap into place for fear of breaking the bus. Some of the trees were cut in half at the base as the instructions tell you to do so.
The top of the castle is slightly bowed back. Remarkably the flags are still in tact on the castle and RR station. The vacuform plastic pieces are complete without cracks. The Adventureland one has some paint loss on the top edge. I believe the rest of the items are here and in very good shape.The playmat was never taped together (as instructed). The instruction sheet is here - but has some wear and age. It is strong - but has real age to it. No dividers in the box (not sure it had them). It looks pretty much unplayed with and not displayed for the last 50 years.
This is a must for the Disneyland lover. A classic, hard to find toy which is an awesome representation of that magical place.
