Rare Vintage 1930's Marx "Popeye Express" Litho Tin Windup Toy Cart w Parrot. This vintage 1930's Marx toy has Popeye smoking a pipe and pushing a travel trunk in a wheel barrow. A parrot is perched on top of the trunk.It is 8 " high, 3" wide, and 8 1/2 long. The front wheel is metal and the two little wheels look like wood. You turn a key to wind up the toy, making Popeye's legs walk, pushing the cart. The walking mechanism works well when not on the floor, but the toy has a hard time moving forward when on the floor. All three wheels work well. This toy has all of its parts. This is the version with the stationary parrot, not the pop-up version.
One side of the toy is in good condition with complete lithographs. It has some fading and a little rust.The other side has areas of damage on the truck, Popeye's hat, shoulder, arm, and pant's leg. The tab on his chin is not hooked into position, so the chin is opened a little bit. The tab and slot are present. Popeye's pipe is loose and can drop down so that just the bowl shows - it is easy to pull it back up into place.
The parrot is in like new condition and needs to be secured to the trunk. Right now it tends to fall off with any motion.It has all four of its tabs.
