Very little is known about Louis Marx' earliest and most difficult to find mechanical tin litho walker toy, Red The Iceman. For years it's been considered one of the rarest of all pre-Depression era toys. The shortened name was taken from a Lloyd Ralston auction catalog. The name was "created" because no box had been found for the toy and it had no identifying text. In fact, it's also one of the very few Marx toys which does not carry a Marx logo.
