Description: It seemed in the 1970's that Playskool was getting the lead on Fisher-Price. After all, they were the ones who had tie-ins with Winnie the Pooh and Disney for their Weeble sets. Fisher-Price decided to remain competitive by snagging the Muppets, and outdid Playskool with the finely-built #938 Sesame Street that hit stores in 1975. Anyone familiar with the television show needs no introduction to what the base looks like, as it duplicates the actual brownstone building to a T. Obviously, Playskool themselves must had been impressed--after Fisher-Price put the #938 to rest, Playskool came up with their own copycap version, recalling the lacing shoe set that Playskool shamelessly cloned in the 1970's.

Popularity notwithstanding, #938 ended production after only three years, though both the #937 Clubhouse and #939 Extras continued in production for one more year.
