Vintage Fisher Price Precious Places
#5176 Living Room
Complete with Key/ NEAR MINT (G)
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 add-on accessory set to this "magic world," the VHTF Precious Places #5176 Living Room Play Set. This set was only manufactured between 1989-90 and was designed to be utilized with the Precious Places #5166 Magic Key Mansion as well as other Precious Places sets such as the #5161 Baby's Nursery Cottage and #5162 Country Kitchen Cottage. The set includes the following:
1 HTF light blue bookcase (MINT);
1 HTF white wicker rocking chair (MINT);
1 VHTF white pole lamp with light blue shade (MINT);
1 RARE light purple fire place accessory stand (MINT);
1 HTF light blue couch with large arched backrest but no seat; the Precious Places figures stand in front of the couch rather than really sitting in the seat (MINT);
1 RARE light pink mantle clock (MINT);
1 RARE set of pink books with cat leaning next to them (MINT);
1 RARE set of purple books (MINT);
1 RARE set of 3 pink candles (MINT);
1 RARE woven pink firewood holder (MINT);
1 RARE molded light purple set of logs (MINT);
1 RARE light purple fireplace brush (MINT);
1 RARE light purple fireplace poker (MINT);
1 RARE light purple fireplace shovel (MINT);

1 EXTREMELY RARE litho pink and light blue flowered rug (NEAR MINT--slight bowing);
1 pale pink colored magnetic key without litho (MINT);
1 RARE plastic box insert (EXC--insert has multiple smushed corners); and
This is an AWESOME set and one difficult to find with all of its tiny pieces and in this condition (NEAR MINT- MINT).
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 6 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 First Class mail. I'm more than willing to combine auctions to save the buyer on shipping.
If you do elect to purchase multiple items, PLEASE combine your purchases onto one INVOICE. Otherwise, I get charged multiple PayPal transaction fees and it makes it more difficult for me to print out a shipping label using PayPal. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
