Back in 2003 my mom found and purchased this amazing vintage pop-up space station play set for me. I can’t remember where she found it or how much it cost*, but I’d bet money she snagged it at the Goodwill outlet store for less than a dollar.
I’m amazed that this little gem is in such good condition. A few parts are missing—the punch-out spacemen, space scooter, and space guns (doh!), but the radar antenna, space capsule, and a few of the random equipment pieces are still in tact. And it still has it’s original assembly instructions!
It’s from Hallmark, but I can’t find a year stamped anywhere. I love the pop-up engineering on this, and the interactive elements are really fun. There are plenty of lift-up flaps to explore. And the illustrations are just lovely.
