Advantages: Big, strong, multi play action garage, takes all you can throw at it
Disadvantages: takes up a lot of room!
FISHER PRICE BIG ACTION GARAGE
A very large Fisher Price garage with spiral ramps.
There is a manual lift to transport cars up the floors of the garage and various ways to come down. There are spiral ramps or a straight ramp which can be adjusted so that the cars can do jumps.
Various barriers on each ramp entry & exit & entrance to garage etc
Petrol pump complete with hose & nozzle
There is a storage tray for cars & flags etc which slides in under the middle ramp
Lots of stickers depicting floor levels, service bay etc
THIS IS A HUGE GARAGE, VERY STURDY, WILL TAKE ALL PLAY THROWN AT IT, AND WILL EVEN SUPPORT A TODDLER'S WEIGHT AGAINST IT.
It measures approx 29" wide x 28" high x 18" deep.
It can be used with other types of car, not just the ones that came with it.
This is a fantastic garage for children (& Dad's!). It is very sturdy, will support the weight of a small child leaning against it & take all manner of play.
I went through a phase of buying these at car boot sales then selling them on ebay.
Typically they would cost around £10 at boot sales & sell for anything between £30 & £70 on ebay if in excellent condition with everything present & correct. Or £10 to £15 for a damaged one (& if you want the buyer to collect it reduces the amount of interested people & you will get less for it). The problem is packing them up & posting which costs around £15 & involves lots of making up cardboard box to fit it & packing to protect it in transit( a job for my older son to do, it's beyond me!)
I have given this up now. I have saved the best one for when the grandchildren come to play.
I also managed to buy on ebay a brand new one still boxed!!! I am holding on to this as a collector's item.
This was an amazing find seeing as this garage is long out of production.
If you want a rare one, look out for the Ferrari model which is more valuable - the same but different colours with different stickers & flags & different more sporty cars etc.
I would thoroughly recommend looking out for either model of these garages, either at ebay or a car boot sale. If you have a young son or Grandson, he will love it. It will be money well spent & will probably still be strong & good to go in your attic when he has outgrown it! They don't make 'em like it nowadays!
Summary: An out of production huge garage, ideal if you can get hold of one
