Wooden moms...


Call me what you will, but I didn't have it in me to resist these ladies! I had one when I was little. I saw them as a bunch, nostalgia came flooding in...and I bid. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them, but I think they're kind of bizarre. The person I bought them from on ebay called them wooden moms, which made me laugh out loud. I also have my eye on this piece of vintage architecture...for EZ E of course.

Omigosh, omigosh, I love, love, love those.... You can spare one right? :)

I had a set as a child (that I wish I still had) of the old lady in a shoe. The set actually had a big shoe they lived in! Do you remember this?

I think they were Fisher Price people. It came with a little old lady with a bun hairdo, and had lots and lots of kids and dogs. I kept adding to it, and I believe the one you have is the mom.

Will make a great display! And a great addition to your collections!

Hi Abbey-

Kris told me about your awesome blog and when I saw all these FP moms I had to send you links to the Cowboy Collaborative blog and Flickr sites. We tend to use Flickr more but both have been fairly inactive lately. On the blog we have some good FP links. And have you been to the FP museum in East Aurora? It's a great field trip because there's also Vidler's and Roycroft.

And congrats on the stunning little boy and grad school.

Thanks, Jenn! Love the Cowboy Collective and the links. I've just spent the last half hour looking at them!

I had that FP a-frame house when I was little!!! And the regular house too. I regularly search for them on eBay and hem and haw about whether to take the plunge and get some of that stuff for my daughter (read: me) to play with. Love them!!!

My mom collects these fisher price Little people. She also has a ton of moms- and dads and children and sesame street versions, etc. The wooden ones are older, they were in plastic by the 80s. There's towns and airplanes and snowmobiles and everything you can imagine for these toys and a whole bunch of people collecting them- even looking for "whoops" which are the mess ups. A girls head on a boys body etc. People pay like 80 dollars for them. Today they still make Little People but they are about three times the size. I guess the choking hazard was discovered.

I am currently addicted to all things Fisher Price - usually only things I have played with as a child, but every now and then something a bit older than my vintage comes home with me! I LOVE your display of moms!
