Little Tales: Fisher Price Little People Farm

Fisher Price Little People Tales

Of all the vintage Fisher Price Little People toys out there, surely the farm is one of the most iconic.

Here’s mine; I played with it for years, then my three girls played with it, and it’s still in pretty good shape.

Here’s a brown horse, inside the barn enjoying a hay snack (sharing nicely with a pair of mice). To get inside the barn required him to open the door — which MOO’ed, of course. I remember, as a child, setting up the barn on the family card table and opening (and then closing) the door over and over again, fascinated by that moo. I still have several of my pull-string “talking” toys, and I don’t think any of them successfully talk anymore. But the door of the barn still moos like the day it came out of the box.

Up in the top of the barn, the chicken is sitting on her straw nest. Are there eggs being laid?

And in the other side of the barn, we have the black sheep — every farm, and every family, has one, right? This one looks quite prim and proper as she surveys a feed sign.

Of course, every farm needs a farm family. Here is mine — the daughter just missing the tails on her pigtails, Farmer and Mrs. Brown looking good, and their son ready to take on the world (or at least the tractor). Rounding out the family, we have the good ol’ farm dog. Fido, I think I called him.

The back of the barn is busy as well. Cows eating, pigs cavorting, and the rooster perched on the fence. Cock a doodle doo!

Let’s head out to the fields for some work. The hitch between the wagon and tractor has seen better days, but twist-ties work just fine in a pinch.

Did you have a Fisher Price Little People Farm as a child? What are your memories of it?

  1. I enjoyed today’s blog so much. The Little People were not available when I was small but I would have loved them to death! I remember my girls having some but can’t remember which category. They liked all the Barbie stuff a lot. I remember my younger daughter changing Barbie’s outfits many times a day.

  2. I love Fisher-Price toys. As you mentioned, this barn has lasted through 2 generation of children playing with it a lot! Seeing it brings back good memories! It’s in amazingly good shape. I believe Fisher-Price is connected with the Quaker Oats Company – another product that’s stood the test of time.

  3. I would have loved playing with them, I’m sure, but they didn’t exist in my day. Glad you enjoyed them so much.
