Marx ca. 1935 Tin Lithographed Windup “Blondie’s Jalopy” Dagwood & Alexander Car
We have for you a ca. 1935 tin, lithographed, windup “Blondie’s Jalopy” with Dagwood & Alexander manufactured by Louis Marx & Company of New York City, New York.
When wound with a key and switched on this working jalopy travels forward with bump and go action as Dagwood and Alexander’s heads turn randomly. There appears to be some touchups on the edges of the front fenders. This does include a key, but we do not think it is original to this car.
This piece is in very good all original condition with no breaks, restorations, or repairs. This piece shows the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. This is approximately 16 ¾” L. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.

Its products were often imprinted with the slogan, “One of the many Marx toys, have you all of them?” Arguably, Marx was the most well-known toy companies through the late mid-20th century. Best known for their lithographed tin windup toys Marx was also one of the big four among American electric train manufacturers. An interesting fact is that Marx also successfully revived the Yo-Yo in 1928; it sold well even through the Depression.
