What Laura and James Found While Digging in their Garden

It’s gardening season finally.  Planting grass seed.  Thinking about what vegetables to plant.  James and Laura were preparing their garden and found this Old School original Fisher-Price Little People® girl.  Wooden head.  Wooden body.

I think she got transferred from my son and his wife’s  house to my daughter and her husband’s  house.  Not by a bird but a grandchild.  Will have to check and see if the same girl is living in two homes.

Awhile ago I did a post on the various generations of the Little People® I’d come across at the family’s house in Columbus.

No worries about choking hazard when these were manufactured.  And here’s the crazy part.  I discovered a site that identifies the Little People®.

From what I could determine she’s from late 60s early 70s.  On the site she is listed as Occupation: Girl.  

Old School Fisher-Price Little People




I think they are a match!


Here are the three generations from the October 2011 post

  1. i have a collection of them for the three year to play with … some of our originals from the 70’s, but others i have bought on ebay very cheaply … they are great toys, she even takes them into the bath … and they are handy people for imaginative play …. the middle one in your photo we call the Mum because she is taller, as are the two different Dads we have 🙂

  2. What a great find! A garden that grows toys is truly a kid’s delight – way better than stinky ol’ veggies. 🙂 I had versions 1 & 2 of Little People when I was a kid; fond memories.

  3. I so remember those little people from my “boys” younger days. Now it’s the granddaughter who loves them too. Thanks for sharing, Ruthie.

  4. Well, Ruth, it may not be at the level of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb but it is still quite a find. Glad to see her back where she belongs, with the other miniatures. 🙂

  5. You found Penny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew she would return. Wait to Butch and Johnboy here she is alive!!!!!!!!! : )

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
