The Story of Marx Toy Soldiers and Playsets

Louis Marx is a well known name in the toy industry. Marx toys and toy soldiers have been in the market since the 50s. Louis Marx and Company has been creating these toys since then and they are popular even today. After the World War I, Louis Marx began creating toy soldiers that were made of metal. But by the World War II, metal was scarce as most of the metal was used in order to make military weapons for the war. As a result, the toy soldiers were then made using plastic. Very soon, these Marx toy soldiers soon became a rage among the people.

Marx soldiers were made of colored plastic. Some of them were available without any color and you could buy those and the color the soldiers yourself. Along with the soldiers, their accessories were available too that could be colored. Even today, many collectors prefer that their soldiers are unpainted. These Marx toy soldiers are based on various historical themes. The figurines are based on the World Wars and the U.S. Civil Wars, some of the concepts even taken from ancient Rome. Others are soldiers from popular television based shows or some futuristic action figures. Apart from these individual toy soldiers, Marx had also manufactured some toy play sets. Some commonly heard play sets are Fort Apache, Gunsmoke, etc.

Even today, boys and men love collecting Marx toys as a part of their hobby. The original production of these toys had stopped in the 1970s and presently only the vintage collection is available on a few websites or reissues made out from the original molds are available. So although these toy soldiers and playsets are now novelty items, they are still favorite collectibles of many people, all over the globe.
