Description: The Main Street was one of the first of the new introductions of Little People sets in 1986. The Main Street is basically just a cheapened update of the #997 Village with a dash of #938 Sesame Street thrown in. All of the good ideas seemed to be present--the lunch counter from #938 SS, mail and other parts from the Village.
Accessories: Please remember that the following accessories are the accessories that are pictured in the Fisher-Price catalogues. These should be used as guidelines only, as other variations may exist:
