|The Babes In Toyland Series made its debut in 1961 to coincide with the theatrical release of the live-action Disney film, BABES IN TOYLAND. The film includes stop-action animation sequences of marching toys and soldiers, from which the Disneykin figures are based on. The figure set consists of only eight solders with different names. Within these eight figures, there are actually only four different soldier poses - which are each duplicated twice with different names. To make matters more confusing, the soldiers came in two distinct sizes: miniature (1.5" Disneykin-scale) and large (60mm size). Both size editions are called "Disneykins." Note: The molds for the larger 60mm soldiers are still in circulation in Hong Kong and other aprts of the world, and sometimes still appear today as cake top decorations. These "remakes" are nearly valueless to collectors. The best way to identify the knock-off is by looking on the unpainted bottom. There should be a circular Marx logo imprinted with "© 1961, Walt Disney Productions."
