Marx Toy Museum

Take A Walk Down Memory Lane -- dedicated to preserving the toys, the history, and the memories of Louis Marx & Co., and to the many men and women who dedicated their lives to toy production.

[Karl Leibensperger, 08/12/2006]

Marx Toys made many of the must-have childhood treasures of the post WWII generation. See the Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots ("World's Only fighting Robots"), Stoney Smith, and lots of metal and plastic playsets with tiny soldiers in pitched battles. The museum includes a gift shop and snack bar outfitted in 1950s decor.
