Description: The long-lived #930 Play Family Garage was replaced in 1986 with the #2504 Little People Garage. The first year of it's production, the "new" garage set wasn't very different than the #930. It had a red ramp opposed to the #930's white ramp, and the accessory service lift was bright green with no litho opposed to the dark green lift with a litho used on #930.

1987 brought drastic changes....the Garage base was made of yellow plastic opposed to masonite, the ramp was blue, and the set no longer came with a service lift. Opposed to a service lift, a short fire hydrant, an open phone booth, a parking meter, and a robot-looking gas pump took its place. The set could have maintained it's appeal with the blue ramp and no service lift, but the yellow plastic base was the killer. It just looks too cheap, bulky, and clumsy compared to the masonite base, and older children find it too baby-looking to play with. This is why most collectors, children, and parents buying for their children prefer the Garage sets that date prior to 1986.
