Louis Marx and Company was one of the leading U.S. manufacturers of toys in the first half of the 20th century. Marx was particularly known for their line of toy trains, as well as for boxed "playsets," many of them representing historical events and figures.

Marx's sales went into decline in the 1960s, and when Louis Marx retired, he sold the company to Quaker Oats in 1972. The company was then sold to an English toy company (Dunbee-Combex-Marx) in 1976, which went bankrupt several years later, ending the Marx brand.
