I used to love Hectors House as a kid.
For some reason I can't recall much now although I remember there being a cat.
Seeing this toy over on Worthpoint reminded me that I've sold a loose one of these in the past.
Its by Marx, clockwork and possibly from 1971.
Its one of those classic plastic and mechanical toys often released by Marx. I didn't think Hector's House was that big a show though.
In the trade magazine Toys International dated 1973 the barrow design was showcased by Marx
but as the much better known Disney characters Goofy, Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse.
There is also a Charlie Barrow, although I'm unsure who Charlie is and whether its a Marx original, although it sure looks like one.
Have you a Marx barrow?
Or a Hector's House collectable?
