Today we go back West for Fisher Price Friday. I am introducing the Westerners #676 produced from 1984-1990. This was an accessory set for the Play Family Western Town #934 (1982-1984) but could also be used by itself.
This first version was made from 1984-1988 and included the Cowboy with a 10 gallon hat (and handlebar mustache), the Gambler (sometimes referred to as Mayor) and a Indian with blue scarf and red markings on his hat.
The Gambler may look familiar, he looks a lot like the Ringmaster from the Circus Train #991 and the Play Family Circus #135. The main difference is size, the ringmaster is short while the Gambler is tall.
The second version was made from 1989-1990, can you spot the difference? The Cowboy and Gambler are the same, only the Indian has a slight variation. This one has a blue scarf and blue markings. It is also a lighter red color.
The Western Town also came with an Indian, and the catalogues and sets I've seen show a Orange Indian with markings on his chest. However, they are many other Indians (more than I have shown here) that must have come with either a different version of the Westerners or with the Town. Ah, mysteries.
If you're looking for Western people I have a few for sale in my Etsy shop.
