Wooden Airport Play Set

This Wooden Airport Play Set made me laugh. A sign of our times? My generation played with Parking Garages, Ella will most probably go straight to Airports.

  1. Fabulous! I have been looking for something like this! THANK YOU!

  2. Actually, I remember playing with my Fisher Price airport way back in the early to mid 70s – complete with airplane, helicopter, luggage, luggage carousel, baggage car, jet fuel tank, and a stewardess. The murals on the inside were very modern and international.

    In fact, my parents kept it all of these years, along with all of the other Fisher Price toys, and now my kids are having a blast playing with them when they go over to Oma and Opa’s house, probably more so than a lot of the more recent toys that we have.

    While this new wooden play set has some nice elements, it is almost completely devoid of any actual “play”. I am a big fan of modern design, but sometimes the whole concept of a toy is lost – it is as if it is being marketed towards the parents, and not the children.

  3. Where’s the curtained-off pat down room?
