MARX Elephant Ramp Walker
This great hard plastic MARX Elephant Ramp Walker is a 1950’s classic Marx Plastic toy from the 1950’s era. The elephant is in gray and red with gold trim! They came in many varieties such as: cream and black, brown and black color and a political version “I Like Ike” with a 48 star flag on the elephant’s back! This vintage toy offered is 3 3/4″ long, and has some very light paint wear from play. I have always loved ramp walkers for all ages… MARX Elephant Ramp Walker would make a great desk toy for any executive!
The art of ramping!
- Find a hard flat surface for a ramp
- Raise the ramp approx. 1 inch for every foot
- Put your ramp walker at the top and let him go- A new way to bet the farm!
Louis Marx and Company was an American toy manufacturer from 1919 to 1978. Founded in 1919 in New York City by Louis Marx and his brother David Marx, the company’s basic aim was to “give the customer more toy for less money,” and stressed that “quality is not negotiable”–two values that made the company highly successful.
