Uncyclopedia joke[edit]

Should we make a reference to the Uncyclopedia in-joke? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.68.52.133 (talkcontribs) 00:55, February 15, 2007 (UTC)

I don't think we should make a reference to that, despite how hilarious it is. Unless something pops up like "Fisher-Price in Pop Culture". (Kip the Dip 07:23, 24 February 2007 (UTC))

Not to offend Kip the Dip or anything, but I, a devoted Uncyclopedian, would like to publicly apologize for the vandalism that seems to be happening to this page. I'm not totally familiar with WP's protection policies, but a semiprotection of this page may be a good idea. For anyone who's wondering why the page keeps being vandalized the exact same way, it might help to read this, this and this. 71.2.72.28 03:30, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Many of the past Uncyclopedia related vandalisms on this page have been wiped from its history. I agree that this page does need some sort of protection however. A similiar thing happened to the Atlantic Records page after "Weird Al" Yankovic released his music video for "White & Nerdy". Why do people love to vandalize? Kip the Dip 08:33, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
It gives them a sense of power, etc, and the fact that they're anonymous(Spelling is a bit =/) doesn't help either. Welcome to the internet. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 219.90.146.8 (talkcontribs) 08:08, June 6, 2007 (UTC)

I also feel that the joke should be referenced. Why not, right? I, too, apologize for uncyclopedian vandals. We can't help ourselves, we're retards. TheLedBalloon 03:11, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Believe, me, I'm the number one fan of Fisher Price. I have my copy of the book autographed (not by the author, but by some random bum on the street). But how on earth could we reference the joke in a toy company article? No, I don't think it would fit. Kip the Dip 15:55, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
It would be vandalism/copyright infringement if anyone other than 4.252.99.182 did it. And if he did it, we'd have to keep it. Because he is a literary genius. --Sir Crazyswordsman 11:58, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

On the Refrences section, we could just put "Fisher Price on Uncyclopedia, the free-content encyclopedia." There's our refrence right there, and it won't clog the page with non-corporation info. --Ye Olde Luke 18:10, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Still, I strongly don't think we should reference ourself in this article, because it doesn't seem that significant to the subject. We had a hard enough time getting into the Oscar Wilde page. Kip the Dip 22:37, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
No, we shouldn't make a reference to it. That's like referring to Borat in the Kazakhstan article - inappropriate.-h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 11:38, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

The result of this discussion was merge into Fisher-Price. (no discussion) MuZemike (talk) 20:12, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

I propose that Firehouse Rescue, Fisher Price: I Can Remember, and Perfect Fit be merged into this article. All three mentioned articles lack notability and are very short stubs at best. I feel that these articles can be better mentioned briefly here instead. Please discuss. MuZemike (talk) 23:58, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Because I have forgotten to add the appropriate {{mergefrom-multiple}} notification on this article, I will keep this discussion open for five more days. If there is still no discussion by then about this merge proposal, it will automatically pass, and all three articles will be merged here. MuZemike (talk) 17:52, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

The above discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

Fisher Price in World War II[edit]

A notable feature of the growth of Fisher-Price Toys was the growth of the firm during World War Two, when they were able to produce wooden toys, rather than using metal that was diverted to the war effort.

A favorite toy from that period was the Snoopy Sniffer, which deserves mention both for the long run of the toy, it's brilliant design, being originally cut from a single piece of 2x4, and it's wartime popularity which gained Fisher-Price national standing in the consumer toy market.

Adventure People?[edit]

I have been pondering whether to write an article about FP's Adventure People. They Adventure People are absolutely one of my favorite toys ever (I spent millions of hours staging boxing fights between my figures and even had two-"Antonio Barbaroja" and "José Barbaroja"-nicknamed after me and my brother) and as you know I tend to write about things or people I have enjoyed or been a fan of. Because of recent articles of mine on VFD, however, for now at least it seems sensible to me that I should ask should I write it or not? before making an article. I don't know if they are notable enough for a stand-alone article and hope to hear your opinion on this matter. Thanks and God bless you! Antonio Barbaroja Martin (haw haw) 10:45, May 31, 2015 (UTC)
