    Back in the 1990s is when the reissues of classic toys began. OK there were some here and there but it became a small industry in the 1990s. The Marx Toy Company that made this was not the same Marx Toy Company of the past. It was based in Miami , FL and I believe the toys were made in Mexico. There were a few problems with quality and they were out of business in the early 2000s. This is one of their sets.
    Typical of the Marx Playset reissues of that period it was not an exact replica. Most of the pieces are true to the original but the playmat with the Bedrock streets was replaced with a Prehistoric Times playmat and not useful for this set. The colors are also note the same but the speckled plastic works well for the buildings. The painted figures are not original to the set and I don't think the Slade Gravel pit was in the original. I did paint some the pieces as they were bright blue, some of the paint has chipped off.
    There are some other companies doing Marx recast sets that are very elaborate and expensive.
    Warning there may be a part two.

      Nice repro. When I was in Oklahoma in the early 60's my mother took me to this toy store to spend my birthday money I'd recieved. I came down to choosing a Cape Canaveral playset or The Flintstones. It was tough but I chose the Canaveral. Evidently the Canaverals had sold pretty good during Christmas(my birthday is Dec. 30) and they only had one left that had been on display. The store guy had to remove all the pieces that been glued to a board and put them back in the box, he didn't disassemble the building etc. I still wonder to this day, should I have opted for the Flintstones in the box?

      Thank you very much Toyrebel. The Flintstones and Cape Canaveral have about the same value now. I think I may have gone for Cape Canaveral too. The Cape Canaveral Carry-All is on my look out list.
      I ought not tell you how valuable the store display would be intact.
