There was this one yardsale that had a bunch of toys from Clint & Carolyn’s childhood. It was fun walking down memory’s lane, but not enough to buy the toys.

I (Clint) used to always play with this at my aunt Marcia’s house! But we didn’t call them "Little People", we called them "Weebles". Anyway, I totally remember the numbers on top, the rotatable red part by the numbers, the working elevator, the ramp + gate … I used to go crazy for this thing.

Fisher Price, Little People garage, Weebles.

    pictures that get the most comments must involve huge amounts of blood or nostalgia

    Jenne H-B: "Or blood AND nostalgia, I’m sure that would be a winning combo."

  • mtnman867:

    I had one of these… amazing how many matchbox cars you could fill it up with!

  • Rev. Xanatos Satanicos Bombasticos (ClintJCL):

    @MtnMan867: How many?

  • mtnman867:

    Mine was probably from the early 70′s so the spot to the left of the elevator was decoration and it had a seperate plastic lift for repair work. Seems it also had an elevator compartment on the outside for the little people. there wasn’t a toll gate at the entrance. but i could get maybe 29 to 30 of the 1:64 scale cars parked in it. Which at the time was probably fairly close to my entire collection!

  • Rev. Xanatos Satanicos Bombasticos (ClintJCL):

    Haha Mtnman867, that’s awesome. I really don’t remember mine with such detail! I just know.. it’s this thing! But for all I know, mine was a bit different too. This thing totally gave me flashbacks :)

  • micahsasha:

    Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down

  • Rev. Xanatos Satanicos Bombasticos (ClintJCL):

    Tell that to Chuck Norris, MicahSasha. He makes Weebles fall down.

  • sweetest_brittany:
