This page and my other cartoon pages were created in 2011, all on one web site page.  Much information and many photos have been added since then, but you can still find many missing photos, and I am sure some of you will identify missing or even incorrect information.  I welcome your comments, corrections, additional information and photos, and anything else you may wish to share with me and others who may read this page.  You can reach me by e-mail at ericjohns4444@gmail.com.

Marx produced its fairy tale figures in what in what collectors today describe as 60mm scale.  In reality, it is hard to measure the actual size that some fairy tales figures should be, so this scale designation primarily means that the fairy tale figures' sizes generally match the company's Disney and other cartoon figures.

Though not often found today, the fairy tale figures were also sold painted and in hard white and pink plastic.  The photos below are from collector Mark Hegeman.  Based on the "flexible" label on the card in the photo below, at least some of the painted figures must have been vinyl or soft plastic.  Note that the painting is much better than most Marx figures that were factory-painted.
