Favorite Marx Toy Christmas Memory

Favorite Toy Marx Christmas Memory

For over 50 years, the toys of Louis Marx & Co were a part of Christmas mornings for generations of children around the world!!!  During the 1950's and 60's, it was stated that one-third of all toys in the U.S. were Marx toys.  And in the 1955 issue of Time Magazine, Louis Marx was reported to be the real life Santa to thousands of children through his donations of toys to organizations and orphanages throughout the world.

As the Christmas season is now upon us, we reminisce those childhood memories of waking up on Christmas morning with gifts neatly wrapped under the tree.  For many, the world was a different time, when getting a gift or a toy was NOT an everyday reward as it often is today, but it was a time when children would wait all season long for that special toy - making the holidays all the more memorable!!!

As a young boy with 5 brothers and a sister, I saw many a Marx toy emerge from the flurry of Christmas wrapping paper each year. Although I am Canadian, the year we lived in Houston was the best. I received the large Blue and Gray play set, and, for once, did not have to share it. Yay! There was also a Robin Hood castle and an Alamo set opened that year. To this day (I am now 65) I remember it as if it was yesterday. I still have many of the pieces, and now, many Marx toys after years of collecting. It was simply wonderful!!
