Description: Those of us who always wished that the #952 Play Family House or #990 Play Family A-Frame had a swimming pool added on got our wish in 1986 with the #2526 Swimming Pool.

This set used some carry-over pieces from other sets, such as the lawn chairs (last used in 1980-1984's #992 Play Family Car and Camper), the 1-step slide (last used in 1978-1979 and 1989's #929 Play Family Nursery School), the BBQ grill (last used in 1979-1982 & 1985's #260 Dollhouse Patio Set), and the life preserver (last used in 1979-1980's #932 Play Family Ferry Boat).

While the life preserver has been used before in other Little People sets, this is the first time it was colored white...it was always yellow before. The white life preserver later showed up in 1989-1990's #2524 Little People Cruise Boat. The lawn chairs that were previously used were always yellow. This is the only Little People set that uses an orange lounge chair.

The lifeguard chair and diving board are exclusive pieces to this set...both were available in green and in yellow. The umbrella table is also exclusive to this set, although the idea is not original (the last used umbrella table was in 1973-1977's #997 Play Family Village.) The difference between the umbrella table used in this set, and those used in previous sets is that the table has round legs that fits into a hole in the swimming pool base.
