The eBay seller's right, you don't see these classic Creative Playthings hardwood cars in this nice of shape very often. And you don't see them with all the passengers, either.
But I guess the original buyer of this example remembered where he stashed those little Finnish choke hazards, and was able to reunite them with their whip after the player started school.
Which reminds me, we still have a couple of PlaySam figures in the glove compartment. The rich Scandinavian tradition of choky, chunky, throwy wooden cars lives on.
