Description: The Nifty Station Wagon is the very first Little People playset that was sold with a family: Dad, Mom, Baby, and dog. The station wagon itself marks an era in American history where wooden-side station wagons were the "family" car of choice. The station wagon/convertible makes an engine "brr-rumm-brr-rumm" sound and it has a happy smiling face with 2 eyes on the front grill that roll up and down as the toy is pulled. The 2 back seats have a mechanism to make the passengers spin when the toy is pulled. The wooden tailgate can be lowered and the roof is make out of 3 separate pieces of white plastic that allows child to change this station wagon into a convertible.

Due to it's age and limited 2 year production, this set is quite hard to come by. The small white plastic convertible top frames are even harder to find than the figures that were sold with the set. The mom and dad figures were also used in 1961's #984 Safety School Bus, but the baby and dog are exclusive to this set.
