Fisher-Price Circus Train
Circus Train was released in 1973 by Fisher-Price. It contained five animals, three “human” performers and four cars. A tuxedoed ringmaster, with a black hat, trained the lion, monkey, giraffe, elephant and bear. The red clown with yellow hat kept everyone laughing and the blue engineer drove the two-seater engine with red piston action and soft, push-button whistle. The engine pulled the gondola car, cage car with swing-down ramp, and two-seater caboose with hinged door.
