Description: One of the all time favorite Little People sets in the 1970's and 1980's was the #991 Little People Circus Train. The circus train was discontinued in 1986, but Fisher-Price decided to revive the set in 1992 for the Chunky Little People line. The three car train features an engine that whistles when the engineer is pressed down. The set includes 2 squeezable plastic animals, and two Chunky Little People figures.

In 1997 this set was introduced with Current Little People figures opposed to Chunky Little People figures. The train itself is identical to the train used with the Chunky Little People line.
