Disneykins 1960s MOC 1st Series Snow White Flat PROTOTYPE Set

The words "one of a kind" are thrown around from time to time - a bit too loosely for our taste. But in this case, these can only be described as ONE OF A KIND! In the early 1960's, Marx released a set of Snow White Disneykins as a complete set - and added some extras such as a tree, water pump, stools, and table. Marx would also produced the Jungle Book series in a similar styled set. What you see in front of you is a RARE pre-production prototype set! This is very special. Before it went into production, this was created. It's HAND DRAWN/PAINTED - not  printed. The artwork is painted in something that looks like acrylic paint. The "holes" are hand cut out. The rear "story" is a taped on, typed sheet (the production version this is printed right onto the box packaging). A close examination discovers these changes between the prototype and the final production version:
  • The forest/trees on the right are more defined
  • The house has had "red" color added
  • The house shutters have been more defined
  • The color of the title part "and the Seven Dwarfs" has been changed to black from blue
  • White "borders" around the names have been added to make them stand out
  • The mountains on the left are LESS defined
  • The walkway in front of Snow White is removed
  • The mushrooms are LESS defined and don't even resemble mushrooms now
  • The production figures are roughly the same - but the pump and tree are noticeably different

Item Condition (Specific)

Amazing part of Disneykin/Marx history! Hand painted/made prototype box! This was obtained with other Marx prototype pieces - we have no doubt of it's authenticity. But you are buying as you see it. The piece has some storage wear - with some minor cracking to the cello wrap/covering.
