(Marx, 1931) A very early tin wind-up toy by Marx Toys called the Marx MerryMakers. While not an officially licensed Walt Disney product, Marx drew inspiration from Walt Disney's newly-created cartoon icon Mickey Mouse when creating this wind-up toy in 1931. The high-quality craftsmanship and charming imagery helped the MerryMakers become one of Marx all-time most popular toys. The 4-mouse band is composed of lithographed tin with a metal turnkey on the right side. The toy works, but its functionality seems a little temperamental and it may require minor service. Measuring 9.5" tall, the toy is in very good condition overall with some surface wear throughout from use and age.
