Antique 1930s Marx Moon Mullins & Kayo Railroad Handcar Tin Wind Up O Gauge


I am pleased to offer this Vintage Marx Moon Mullins and Kayo Handcar Tin Wind up Toy from the 1930s. 

Moon Mullins, a tough-guy character created by Frank Willard, debut in June of 1923 in the Chicago Tribune. 

Intended to be a blue collar rival success to Barney Google, Mullins had a slew of characters such as Kayo his younger brother, Mamie the Cook, and Lord Plushbottom.

This great wind up car features Moon and his kid brother Kayo operating a train rail handcar. 

The car itself is a pressed steel while Moon, Kayo, and the pumping lever are tin.  Car features a fixed windup key, and mechanism is in strong working condition. 

After being wound, and releasing the stop/go lever, the car propels itself quite fast as the two characters pump up and down!! 

The characters are slightly loose, so when they are moving they are a bit jerky.  Will operate on flat surface or O gage rail.

Fantastic addition to any Marx or Vintage Comic Collection!!

Car measures about 6″ L x 2-5/8″ W x 6-1/4″ H



This vintage Marx Moon Mullins & Kayo handcar is in good condition for its age, showing some moderate scratching throughout from play wear. Mild paint wear is evident across the car, and some spots show some light oxidation.
