Description: The Lift & Load lumber yard is chock-full of hard-to-find pieces that collectors have come to hate (or love if they are fortunate enough to own them). Perhaps the most notable of this rather unremarkable Little People set is the fact that it included real wooden lumber, rather than plastic lumber. This could be seen as a step back (or forward), considering Fisher-Price had all but stopped using wood in Little People sets by 1978. Not suprising that those blocks are now the hardest of the pieces of this set to find, along with a very uncommon variant--a base with a white floor, oppose to gray.

The top front side of the roof has a yellow paper litho marked "FISHER-PRICE LIFT & LOAD LUMBER YARD" in English. The grey Lumber Yard base has a molded-in parking and loading ramp beside the building. *See "Variations" below.
