Charmkins Flower Mill Play Set Windmill with Whippoorwill, Chrysanthemum & Furniture
This vintage play set is the Charmkins Whippoorwill Flower Mill, it's a flower-shaped windmill for displaying your charms and the back opens up to reveal a tiny house. It comes with most of its original accessories, including some furniture, Whippoorwill bird ring, and Chrysanthemum charm, which were only sold with the set.
There were several color variations of the flower mill made and different colored furniture for the inside. This set has a peach or orange colored flower at the top and a yellow flower on the front. Whippoorwill the bird fits inside a ring shaped like a nest, and the ring fits into the top of the mill. Turning the ring will turn the flower where the charms can be displayed.
The petals of the large yellow flower on the front have pegs for hanging the Charmkins, so this makes a great way to display them. These pegs get broken off easily, so it's rare to find a Flower Mill with all of the pegs intact.
The Flower Mill has a green "yard" base, and there's a fence at the front with a detachable bird bath and picnic table. More Charmkins can be displayed here.
The inside opens up to show miniature rooms, there are stickers with room details such as windows and furniture, but there's also real plastic furniture that can be moved and arranged. Included with this set are the following:
Picnic table (pink)
Bird bath (purple)
Pot belly stove (pink)
Wood box - hinges on lid are broken (pink)
Coffee table (purple)
2 Flower pots (1 purple, 1 pink, flowers are broken)
Whippoorwill bird Charmkin with nest ring
The play set shows some wear and there's some yellowed glue residue from places where it was glued. The plastic is yellowed and aged in places, consistent with the age of this piece.
There's also some melting or mottling of the plastic on the top flower, side balcony, and base as shown in the 5th and 6th photos.
This would be such a fun addition to your collection and also makes a great way to display your Charmkins collection!
