Some of you who know me here on the internet through my other blog are aware of my fascination with the work of Fred Rogers. For me, that "one item" is the 1977 Neighborhood of Make-Believe playset made by Ideal.
For years I have been searching high and low for any sign that this playset even existed. Having come up with two images of this set and nothing more, I was beginning to wonder if the playset was something that was planned but never produced. But last week that all changed.
Thanks to eBay, I was able to come up with not one, but three pieces from this orginal set. So it's out there, folks, and I have a renewed faith that someday I will come across a complete set.
Most people would wonder why a guy in his 30's is so excited about these old toys, but some of you reading this certainly understand. You've got something you're looking for, too.
