Marx Rolykins Figures

In the 1960s, Marx & Company produced a multitude of plastic figures called Disneykins (see earlier post). Always looking for ways of reinventing their toys, they also came up with a series of rolling figures called Rolykins. Only a handful of Disney characters were made, Dopey being one of them.



Each plastic figure measures around 1.25" tall and contains a metal ball bearing on the bottom which enables them to roll. They are hand-painted, although not always with much artistic flare.

A "Stunt Speedway" track was sold separately in which the figures could do "loop the loop" action.
