Basic Fun Collectible Fisher Price Ornaments Series 2

I'm back this week with Series 2 of the Basic Fun Collectible Fisher Price Ornaments.  To see Series 1 look at lasts week's entry here.  Basic Fun introduced two sets of 6 ornaments, this second series was released in 2006.  You can find them for sale on eBay for around $9 - $40 each.  

Series 2 included:

Fisher-Price Toy Chest 
Christmas Mini Copter 
Chatter Phone Santa 
Little People Santa's Workshop 
Christmas Express 
Little People School Bus

I love love love this Fisher-Price Toy Chest ornament.  It is probably my favorite.  The tiny toy box sits on a red rug and is full of old toys.  Inside the box is a corn popper, wrapped present, stacking rings and Dr Duck.  Interestingly it's the same Dr Duck shown in the 2004 Basic Fun Santa and Dr Duck ornament.  I guess Santa was able to finish him between 2004 and 2006. ;)

As if the toys inside weren't cute enough there are two adorable tiny tiny Little People on the outside of the box too!  Also a red ornament.  To finish the details there is the vintage FP logo on the box lid and a Fisher-Price Toys, Inc written on the front of the box.

Next up another adorable tiny ornament the Christmas Mini Copter.  It is the same design as the full sized Mini Copter #448, but with different Christmas-themed characters flying and riding in the plane.

Santa is piloting the copter and has a reindeer and a elf along for the ride.  Also a bunch of presents of course!  The copter blades move around as do the wheels.  I'm giving my toddler the full size mini-copter toy for Christmas, how cute would it be to have this decorating the outside of the package?

Here we have yet another Chatter Telephone ornament, fashioned after the #747 Chatter Telephone.  This one is called the Chatter Phone Santa.  In case you are keeping track there are 4 different Chatter Phone ornaments out there all together (so far!).  But more on that farther down.  This Chatter Phone is wearing a Santa hat and has little snowflakes on the outside of the phone instead of stars.  The dial turns around but does not make a sound.

The back of the phone has a black cord and the old fashioned FP logo.  It is a happy little ornament.

Here are all 4 Chatter Phone ornaments.  From L to R: Basic Fun, Dept 56, Hallmark and Fisher Price.

Little People Santa's Workshop.  Complete with Santa checking his list and loading up his sleigh with toys.

The Christmas Express ornament has Santa driving the train with a big smile on his face.  Each side has the same lithograph.

Last but not least the adorable Little People School Bus.  It's the #192 School Bus all decked out for Christmas with garlands, holly berries and a big bow on the hood.  Also along the side of the bus instead of drawings of children it has drawings of toys and Christmas objects.

Inside the bus is driven by Santa and instead of kids there are 5 elves and a pile of presents.

Here is the Christmas bus next to the Hallmark School Bus ornament.

They're both very cute but the Hallmark one is a bit larger.

Merry Christmas!
