You may recall these Marx president figures from the 1960's. There are 35 figures in all, up until President Johnson. Each figure is 2 2/4" tall and is hand painted. On the front of the base is the presidents name, and on the rear of the base is the years in office as well as his number as president, for example, Abraham Lincoln # 16. In addition to buying the presidents as a set, I remember these being given out as a premium at Jewel Food stores in the Chicago area, in which a different figure would be given out every week. If anyone remembers this please let me know. The base and columns are made of styrofoam.

    I wish Marx would update their Presidential figures through the present. I have two of these sets and they are marvelous --not only for collection but as a learning tool. Does anyone know why they don't update them or if they will?

    Sorry, but the Louis Marx toy company is no longer in bisiness.

    Thanks for the info------Didn't realize that--wonder if another toy company perhaps obtained their patents, etc. ?
