Meet the presidents.  These figures by Marx were sold in grocery stores and hobby shops.. and came in several versions, white, tan, and pre-painted.  They were sold as craft kits to paint yourself or just as collector thingies.  Every president, Washington thru Eisenhower.  They made two of Ike, since he was in office at the time.  I have them all, except for Lincoln… I haven’t found him yet.  I have a few duplicates too.

Funtimes with the presidents.

Party time!!!!!!

I gave them some red party cups, because everyone deserves a party on their special day.

    I’ve seen these single presidents but never as many as you have amassed here. Did you get them one by one?

    So nice that you brought them out today and threw them a little party. I love that Eisenhower’s the one who standing on his head. I always felt he needed to loosen up a little. Are their red cups filled with Wild Turkey?

    No surprise that Lincoln’s the most popular one.

    I love this collection. Are they made of soft rubber (like many of the Marx farm and ranch figures) or are they made out of a hard plastic or ceramic? How tall does each figure stand?
