I had a recollection of a toy that I received from Burger Chef when I was a kid (probably around the late 70's era.) I discovered your site on the net, and it seems to be the expert on the subject, so I thought I would ask you. The piece as I recall was a large poster board size card- with the layout of a neighborhood on it. The art work was very nice, not the cheap cartoon work of many a give-aways. I assume that a person would collect different properties and install them on this board?, or somehow make additions to the neighborhood. The years have fuzzed my perception-- do you know of anything like this?Thanks,Todd Martin
I had the Fun Village Play Land. You collected the houses off of the Fun Burger box and there was a mat you purchased with the punch out cars that were about the size of Hot Wheels. The last house in the village was the Burger Chef. I think this was around 1973-1974. I remember I gave the whole village to a younger kid after I did not play with it for a while and I certainly regret it because I don’t even have any pictures of it. Hopefully someone else who visits this site will remember it also.
Dear Todd & Margaret,
Burger Chef distributed the Fun Village in 1975. The mat itself included an instruction sheet and punch out vehicles, people, trees, etc. There were 24 buildings to collect and place on it. I don't have them pictured on my site because I don't have any in my collection. They're very rare and go for a substantial chunk of change when I have seen them. There's a slightly unfocussed, black and white picture of the complete set in Tomart's Price Guide to Kid's Meal Collectibles (Non-McDonald's) .
