Those of a certain age remember Marx toys. They made everything from Western playsets to tin dollhouses to the original Big Wheel and Rock’em Sock’em Robots.

A small cabin from a Marx Western playset with an open door and two small windows on each side plus a chimney on the top right. The parts of the cabin are painted, so the roof tiles are a rustic brown and the logs are painted light and darker browns.

Not everyone remembers Marx toys. But collectors like the fans behind Stewart’s Attic and Marx Collector remember. Not to mention the Marx Museum, Marx Lane, and Ed Berg’s Toys and Stuff blog.
