Description: The very first Little People town was introduced in 1973 as the #997 Play Family Village. It was discontinued in 1977, but remains to be the best Little People town that Fisher-Price has ever made. In 1986 Fisher-Price introduced the 2nd little people town as the #2500 Play Family Main Street. The #2500 was quite a disapointment in comparison to the #997, yet it remained in production until the end of the Original Little People line in 1990. A mainstreet set was never made for the Chunky Little People line, and didn't appear in the Current Little People line until 1998 as the #72355 Main Street.
This set has town 3 sections that connect together and can be stacked or set up different ways. The biggest of the 3 sections is a two-story white building with a firestation, small park with a detachable swing, a pet shop, barber shop, and roof that either of the other two building can fit on. The second section is a blue diner with patio roof, and the third section is a car wash with a ramp and gas pump. The set includes lots of accessories, including an umbrella table, food tray, signs, vehicles, a mail truck and letters, and Current Little People figures. Designed for children ages 1-1/2 years and older.
- 3 main street buildings:
- FPT13491 - Large white 2-story building with a red firestation door on the front that really opens, a red mailbox flat that opens, a green tree piece that holds an accessory swing, and a green elevator that lifts the accessory Little People to the 2nd floor. The 2nd floor has a barber shop on one side and a pet shop on the other side that has a revolving pet stand. The roof is large enough to hold either of the other two building, making a larger structure.

The cleaners can be moved back and forth manually. A gaspump with a red hose and nozzle are attached to the front of the building.
