The 101 DALMATIANS Playsets store display shown above features all six playset boxes from 1961. The Playset display consists of six highly-detailed window scene boxes representing the 101 DALMATIANS story. Each playset has 6-10 figures with a unique background illustrating key scenes from the film. The back of each box contains a breif synopsis of the"scene." In addition, like the twelve 101 Dalmatians TV--Scenes, these boxes came in two sizes, a standard size playset box and a larger one with more figures. Shown above are the larger versions.
