Description: The #146 Pull-A-Long Lacing Shoe is the third and final Original Little People play set that featured a shoe as the play base. The 1st was the #991 Music Box Lacing Shoe (1964-1966), which rolls on 4 plastic wheels and has a round metal cylinder inside that spins and plays music. The 2nd Little People set with a shoe base was the #136 Play Family Lacing Shoe (1965-1969), which is a shoe with no wheels. The #146 is the only shoe base of the 3 that has red plastic wheels. The shoe has shapes holes cut into the sides and top that the accessory Little People figures fit through. The figures can be removed from the shoe through it's hinged wooden tongue. The sides of the shoe have holes that child can lace a 50" long shoe lace through to teach him how to lace and tie his shoes.

The figures used in this set are nearly identical to those used in the #136 Lacing Shoe. The only different figure is the mother. Though she has the same face and hair, the mother used in this set has a regular base opposed to the #136 bell-shaped base mother.

When this set was first introduced, all of the figures were made of wood. During the middle of it's production, Fisher-Price started using plastic heads on the wooden bodies. The last half of it's production all of the figures, except the dog, had a plastic head and wood body.
