In 1953 Marx came out with a Disney licensed set of figures packaged as the Walt Disney Television Playhouse. The figures were also sold individually as "bin/ counter top" toys. Either copies of the molds were made or the molds moved to Holland and then Germany as painted versions were made at the Marx operations in these countries. Some of the poses were also downsized and sold as hard plastic painted "tinykins". Photos courtesy Gus Wasson.

- DISNEYKINS, FAIRYKINS & TV-TINYKINS AND OTHER HARD PLASTIC PAINTED MARX CARTOON FIGURES
Marx made three distinct series of smaller 30-35mm "comic/cartoon" style figures some of which are smaller versions of the larger 60mm figures seen above. These smaller figures were sold in large sets (as pictured), smaller window box sets with several figures and in individual boxes. Generally hard plastic and painted some also exist in unpainted white soft plastic. To confuse matters Marx then made larger "Disney KING" versions in hard plastic and painted them. As some of the original 60mm molds had gone to Holland where soft plastic painted versions were made it all gets confusing
