    As one who lives in a log cabin and collects playsets this is a perfect fit. It is a tin litho cabin that came with various Marx Playsets such as some Fort Apache Stockades and various Ranch playsets. It is about 10" wide which makes it work for any typical playset scale. Playsets tended to mix various scales. The rule is that each piece has to be true to its own scale, no giant heads and so on which would look cartoonish. Marx playset pieces of the late 1950s and early 60s were highly detailed. That is when the technology to make them more realistic came into existence. The art department outdid themselves with this piece with many nice little details. They are just painted on but kids would use their imagination. Plus it just looks good. Plus I have a lot of the same things hanging on my wall.
    Plus it has the bracing wire in the back. Not all them have that.

      I can remember the days when kids and imagination were one. Now I think kids don't have any of the fun we used too nice piece, and yes it fits you and yours.

      Do you have a Alamo tin litho playset? I bought one in a bundle of stuff. It was bent all out shape. I managed to carefully straighten it out and it looks amazingly good. The crest on the front of the church is missing. All of the compound fence is there.

      Thank you very much racer4four. I have a boy scout figure to put in there.

      Thank you very much rose.

      Thank you very much RishmondLori. They play video games now on their phones.

      Thank you very much GateKeeper. Sadly no Alamo set. I really would like that one. All sorts of neat stuff in that one.

      I so agree with RichmondLori, we didn’t need the internet or cell phones, just a sunny day to be outside. Never played in the house, Mom had to come down to be beach at dusk to get us out of the water. I wouldn’t trade my childhood for anything!!!

      Ms.CrystalShip I didn't need video games, I always had stuff to do.
