Vintage Fisher Price #2020 Post Office
100% Complete with Crayon and Cloth
Near Mint/ (G)
Here is a FABULOUS find---a 100% complete Vintage Fisher Price #2020 Post Office Play Set! This wonderful toy was manufactured between 1990 to 1992 and afforded children hours of imaginative fun. The set included a realistic mail box with a letter slot, a package compartment, 2 post office boxes with clicking keys and much more. Other contents consisted of a working stamp dispenser with 8 reusable stamps, wipeable stationary and crayon, letters, envelopes, post cards, a package, and a mail tote. Children could pretend to write and send letters, thereby enhancing their emergent literacy and pre-writing skills or "sort and deliver the mail" like a real mail person. This would make a TREMENDOUS gift for some lucky preschool age child. Children love sending and receiving mail. What a way to foster more child interactions with print in a meaningful context!
Specifically, this set includes:
1 RARE Post Office Box with a dial combination lock, slot for mailing post cards and letters, pull down yellow door to mail packages, and two lockable Post Office boxes; the Post Office conveniently stores all of the contents inside and provides a work area for the "Postal Workers (EXC++-NEAR MINT--couple of miniscule bubbles on "clock face" litho; otherwise, NEAR MINT);"
2 white hard plastic envelopes with hinged lids to insert a "letter" inside (NEAR MINT);
2 white hard plastic wipe-off hinged "letters" (NEAR MINT);
1 red mail tote with a hinged yellow handle; the tote has divided sections for letters, stamps etc.(MINT);
1 yellow plastic package (box) that is hinged; it has an area in the upper right hand corner where a stamp may be applied and removed (NEAR MINT-MINT);
1 RARE blue crayon with a wrapper saying "Fisher Price" (MINT);
1 small cloth eraser to remove the crayon from the "letters" etc. (MINT);
1 plastic postcard with a litho depicting a circus and a clown (NEAR MINT);
1 plastic postcard with a litho showing a picture of a girl and boy at the beach (MINT);
1 working red stamp dispenser (this is so cool!); the child presses down the lever and the stamp ejects from the preloaded dispenser (NEAR MINT);
1 yellow tray with hook on each end; the tray fits inside the upper right hand side of the mail box's interior (MINT);
8 small plastic stamps with a different picture and price imprinted on each of them; these include: a blue, .05 Space Shuttle; a blue, .45 Saturn; a green, .03 Train; a green, .12 George Washington; an orange, .75 Lion; and orange $1.00 Airplane (must be going to Canada); a red, .10 Dinosaur; and a red, .30 French Horn (all MINT). Kids love to "purchase" their stamps and apply them on the postcards, envelopes, and package.
This is an AWESOME play set---one chock full of educational applications as well as open-ended fun! This set is EXTREMELY RARE and VHTF with ALL of its original accessories. I have only seen two complete sets like this in over 10 years with all of its accessories. I'm sorely tempted to keep it for myself but I'm "biting the bullet" and offering it for sale so that some lucky child or collector may have one of these intriguing sets.
I will be sending this set to its new owner securely wrapped in bubble wrap and tucked inside another protective box. The set weighs 4 lbs., 1 oz. and my location is Lafayette, IN (47905).
Fed Ex Home Delivery is running about 33% cheaper than the USPS or UPS Ground for deliveries in the continental U.S. This is especially true for packages weighing in excess of 5 lbs., traveling longer distances, or requiring an oversized box. To ship Fed Ex Home Delivery, I must have a residential address, not a P.O. box, and a contact phone number (e.g. home, cell, or work place). Otherwise, Fed Ex will not accept the package for shipping.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
