“Thimble City” was a magnetic city where people and cars moved like magic. I bought this used from a garage sale and it did not have the people with the set. But I loved the fact that it was a city with streets and buildings you could put down on it. I do not recall getting the cars either, but my “Hot Wheel”cars worked great. Later on, other types of these cities surfaced and this one became a city of the past.
