Wow sorry if I am being redundant, I am a little obsessed with these!! :-)  I realized that I put a thing in for a page but in the wrong section so I deleted it and wanted to put 1 in here!!  I can provide just about any pictures you may need!!

They were made by fisher price in 1989 and 1990 and were taken off the shelf pretty quickly due to the fact that they posed a choking hazard for children.  They made roughly 25,000 of each set (that was the most- some they made a lot less)  They are pieces to a village that light up with the help of a key and most of the people and animals have magnets on the bottom so they can be moved along the side walk or within the houses.

For more information check out any of these sites:

I also spent over an hour on the phone with fisher price getting more information (like I said- obsessed lol) and can provide more info if needed!!  :-)

I loved those toys! I had them long ago but I had forgotten the name over the years, so I turned to this site for help. There wasn't a section on them, but I did get directed to another site elsewhere which gave me the information I needed to identify the only piece I had left. But I would still love to see them covered here :D
