The Little People cows were first introduced in 1968 with the #915 Play Family Farm, and discontinued in 1991. During this time span, Fisher-Price made several different cows:
In addition to the above mentioned variations, there is one last difference to note. The white cows that were used on the later model #915 Farm, and on the #2501 Farm are a much brighter white than the older sheep. The are brighter not only because they are "newer", but because they are made from a different type of plastic than the older white cows. Click here for an illustration. Although it is a bit difficult to see the difference in our photo, it is very obvious when you have the two in your hand and compare them.
- The oldest cows have a metal rivet through their belly and no wording, meaning they were made in the USA.
- The 2nd version has a metal rivet and the words "Made in Hong Kong".
- The 3rd version has a circular depression where the rivet used to be and the words "Made in Hong Kong".
- The last version has a smooth belly and the words "Made in Hong Kong".
