Marx 60mm Doll House Figures

Marx made a dizzying array of "family people" to populate their doll houses, pet shops. zoos, and other sets. The seated children, Group A can been seen in the early 1950s Sears catalog doll house pictures, but most of Marx's other "family people" seem to have been made in the 1950s as well. Older versions were made in rubber like vinyl while later versions were made of polyethylene soft plastic (SP). These figures are also being found in the old Marx landfill. We think after burial the cream color turns white then progressively darker gray but could be wrong.

Marx made a modern somewhat bizarre IMAGINATION DOLL HOUSE with stacking modular pieces. The set came with the 4 piece 1960s family, but also included the harder to find 3 piece seated family (father with pipe, mother pointing and daughter). We have only had them in waxy cream. 1960s Family stock is shown above.

Doll House Furniture

Like the figures, Marx doll house furniture was made in distinct molds that could be rearranged into different groupings depending upon the specific needs of the doll house to be sold. PL-518 Patio & Bar furniture had 8 cavities. If only the 6 piece patio furniture was needed the mold was run using only those six cavities and was called PL-518A. The bar could be used by itself as PL-518B. Old warehouse stock surfaces every now and then and several of the PL-518A groups in PL-518 bags have come to light. Why the incorrect bag was used in unknown.

NONE - PL-518 bag with 6 piece PL-518A patio furniture grouping as seen above. Old warehouse stock.

This mold, PL-330 had 18 cavities making three sets of figures in cream soft plastic. The easiest combination would be one of each of the six figures pictured above. The boy with bucket is the 60mm farm boy, and blue man seated is a 60mm "Special Town Cowboy". It has been assumed that the mold had these two figures as they come in the same playsets as do the four fox hunt figures. In the recent release of reissue of this mold (made in red) the seated cowboy was in the mold but the seller has decided to sell this figure in a different way, probably with some type of western themed set.

12.00 RECAST Marx Inaugural Series (Mold PL-681)Three presidents and their wives. The set has the Washingtons, Lincolns and Eisenhowers, six 54/60mm figures, HP; 1 yellow, 1 dark blue.

Marx made several sizes and series of US Presidents. Owner Louis Marx was a personal friend of Dwight Eisenhower of whom he made several different poses and sizes of figures. The white unpainted series came first (we think) and includes the first 33 presidents from Washington to Eisenhower. Some were either made in a cream or yellowed over the years

Both Eisenhowers and FDR had multiple poses unlike the other presidents. A second Grover Cleveland would have made sense.

Marx did a series of candidates including Nixon and Humprey. Nixon of course became president, but his figure was made before that time and so does not include a date on the base.

10.00 Nixon (nothing on base back). (1)

A company on New York know as Pretested Promotions bought the painted presidents from Marx for resale in 24 count decorated boxes as can be seen above. They were made in both Hong Kong and Taiwan. Perhaps to cut down on costs the counter boxes went from being printed for each president to a generic box with each president's name ink stamped. The figures came in small header bags with a small white circle marked with a number representing which president each was. Eventually the headercard was done away with and each bag, as can be seen with the Lincoln figure above, was marked with the number. Perhaps to be ready for whomever won the 1968 election Pretested Promotions had Hubert Humphrey figures ready to sell. As he lost they went into storage until they turned up in the 1990s.

At some point production was moved to Taiwan. The above picture shows Hong Kong figures on the left and Taiwan examples on the right. The Taiwan Eisenhower was redone with the hand at chest switching from right hand to left hand. Paint schemes also differed as you can see on the William H. Harrison figure.

We have also noticed that there are two variations of apostle Philip. The words and symbol under the base differing. Does anyone know why?
