YOU COULD PUT A SMALL RUBBER TIP ON IT AND IT WOULD WORK FINE GOLDEN ARCH BRIDGE ONE PAIR STILTS AND BASE SEVEN CHARACTERS: RONALD McDONALD (HAS A SCRAPE ON HIS CHEST) HAMBURGLER (HAS A 1/2" SLIT IN CAPE). HE HAS AN ATTACHED WRENCH PROFESSOR CAPTAIN CROOK WITH SWORD MAYOR McCHEESE BIG MAC UNCLE O'GRIMACEY (PURPLE FUZZY WITH PLASTIC EYES, EYEBROWS, MOUTH & FEET)

ALL OF THESE CHARACTERS ARE HARD DOLLS WITH RUBBER HEADS EXCEPT FOR UNCLE O'GRIMACEY WHICH IS A STUFFED FELT DOLL. HE COMES WITH HIS HAT. ALL HAVE A KNOB ON THE BACKS OF THEIR BODIES TO MAKE THEIR HEADS MOVE. THEY MOVE BACK & FORTH AND UP AND DOWN. SOME ARE A LITTLE STIFF, BUT STILL WORK FINE. SEE THE PICTURE OF THE KNOB.

ALL OF THE SECTIONS OF THE TRAIN ARE INCLUDED. T ARE THREE CARS; THE ENGINE WHICH RUNS BY WINDING IT UP WITH A RED KEY, THE PASSENGER CAR AND THE HAMBURGLER PADDY WAGON. EVERYTHING IS FINE EXCEPT TWO SMALL PIECES OF PLASTIC ARE BROKEN THAT LATCH THE PADDY WAGON, BUT IT WILL STILL LATCH. (I HAVE TWO SMALL PIECES OF THE BROKEN PIECES THAT I WILL INCLUDE). THE TRAIN WORKS GREAT. IT HAS AN ON/OFF SWITCH ON THE BOTTOM AND ON THE TOP T IS A YELLOW BUTTON IN THE SMOKE STACK THAT WILL ALSO MAKE IT RUN WITHOUT DOING THE SWITCH MANUALLY. T ARE SPOTS ON EACH CAR W THE CHARACTERS CAN RIDE. HAMBURGLER LOOKS REALLY CUTE LOCKED IN THE PADDY WAGON! T IS A RED/WHITE CROSSING ARM THAT SITS ON THE SWITCH PLATE THAT WILL TURN MANUALLY, LETTING THE TRAIN STOP OR GO. T ARE TWO YELLOW STILTS THAT RONALD'S FEET FITS INTO TO MAKE HIM STAND HIGH ABOVE THE RESTAURANT. THE RESTAURANT HAS A PLASTIC TOP AND YOU FIT A CARDBOARD DESIGN OF McDONALD'S RESTAURANT INTO THE SLOTS MAKING IT A STANDUP. YOU HAVE TO BEND THE CARDBOARD TO MAKE IT FIT (THIS SHOWS ON THE BACK OF THE STANDUP W IT HAS BEEN BENT. WORKS FINE! THIS ALSO HAS A WHITE ROUND PLASTIC TABLE AND A 1/2 MOON BENCH. ON THE TABLE I PLACED A TRAY OF FOOD (A DRINK AND HAMBURGER). THIS IS ALL ATTACHED TO THE TRAY.

ALL OF THE DOLLS ARE NICE. THEY RANGE IN SIZE FROM 6" TO 7". ALL HAVE THE KNOB ON THEIR BACKS EXCEPT FOR UNCLE O'GRIMACEY. ALL OF THE DOLLS ARE MARKED ON THEIR BACKS " REMCO McDONALD'S SYSTEM INC. 1976, HONG KONG.

THE APPLE PIE TREE IS FINE EXCEPT FOR W THE RED SWING POPS OFF, THAT I MENTIONED EARLIER. BY PUTTING A RUBBER TIP OR ANYTHING ON THE END WOULD HOLD IT IN. THE GOLDEN ARCH SLIDE IS FINE ALSO.

I KNOW T IS SUPPOSE TO BE A CARDBOARD PLAYGROUND SET; I'M PRETTY SURE THIS IS ALL I AM MISSING.

T IS SO MUCH TO DESCRIBE IN THIS VINTAGE SET, THAT I MAY HAVE MISSED SOMETHING. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS AND I WILL TRY TO ANSWER TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY.

THIS IS A NICE VINTAGE McDONALD'S PLAYSET. IT WOULD MAKE A GREAT COLLECTIBLE OR A GREAT PLAYSET TO PASS DOWN.
