Line Mar was founded in the 1950s as a manufacturing and import subsidiary of the successful American toy manufacturer Louis Marx & Co.

The Japanese company was responsible for overseas manufacturing and distribution relationships involving the importation of mechanical and battery-operated toys made in Japan.

Marx was able to secure several important character licenses, such as Popeye and the Flintstones and had the toys made in Japan to keep the cost down. This meant huge profits when the tin toys were sold in the US. Linemar continued to produce a variety of character toys until it went out of business in the late 1960s.

linemar toys

Mechanical toys produced by Linemar include a variety of licensed character toys that performed multiple actions when the toys were wound. The packaging was always colorful and eye-catching.

Nowadays, Linemar toys are highly collectible and can be expensive. If you want to know the value of your Linemar toy, write in the comments below.

The Linemar Disney characters are the most popular, followed closely by Linemar Popeye and his crew (Olive and Bluto) and the Flintstones from prehistoric Bedrock.

Hi, I have a Linemar Ford Dump Truck in its original box but I cannot find a picture of this truck online that matches the truck I actually have. I have an eBay account and know how to search for completed and sold listings, and I haven't been able to come up with a match. I'm going to email you pictures and am hoping that maybe you can help me identify it! (I would appreciate it very, very much!). This toy was part of my mother-in-law's toy collection.
I'm afraid I don't have time to look at your toy, sorry! However, what you could is join one (or a few) of the larger tin toy collectors groups on Facebook. There are a lot of experts out there who might help you! I have limited knowledge of these toys unfortunately...

I recently found a Linemar Viscount tin plane with Capital Airlines markings. It's in nice shape cosmetically, although the springs that turn the propellers are disconnected (but present). All three landing gear are present and retract/extend via a lever on the top of the plane. Any idea what it's worth? The closest thing I can find is one selling on ebay for almost $1500 from the Netherlands, but that seems a bit extreme. Would like to know when it was made as well.

Hello, not sure if my last email went through. I am looking to see if you know the history and value of the army jeep I have listed on Ebay.
I had a look but I don't know anything about your jeep, sorry. Try one of the vintage toys groups on Facebook.
Kevin - February 25, 2021
I found what I think is a Linmar toy. It has no markings but my friend found a similar toy at the same store at the same time. His was marked Linmar. Mine is an army jeep with a driver and a cover over the back. I can't find this one online. Do you know of this model, and it's value? Here is the listing on eBay
Alex - February 9, 2021
I have a popeye moving van and I noticed it does not have the king syndicate printed on the right side back door like the other ones that I have seen. Is this an earlier or later version? Thanks.
Sorry, no idea... Maybe a knock-off? If another visitor knows the answer, I'll forward you their reply.

Hi I just got a matchbox size Robby space patrol, can you tell me about it?
It's from the Linemar Elegant Miniatures Space Series. I think there were a total of four models, made early 1960s. In 2017, a complete set was sold on eBay for USD 87. Don't know what the prices are today, sorry.
Peter - September 15, 2020
Hi There! Just wondered if you could please tell me what year this top was manufactured. It's in near-mint condition, but I can't find out its age. Thank You!
Probably end of the 1950s. One was sold in August on eBay for USD 180, but with a crack in the dome, so you got a nice piece here!
Travis - August 23, 2020

Hi John, thanks for your response. I went to the Linemar site. I was able to post a comment for a fellow collector , but don't see where I can post photos of the Linemar College car I seek to identify.A couple of added details to the car in question: It was originally battery cable controlled. Secondly it resembles an Arnold Roadster made in Germany in the 1950's, but this one is clearly marked LINEMAR on the underside.Anyway any help in posting photos and a question would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks, Will
Hi Will, I think you have to become a member of the Facebook group, and if you're accepted then you'll be able to post a question or story with photos. Alternatively, you could also browse through all Linemar cars to see if you can find yours or one similar.
Will - April 26, 2020
Have you ever seen a Linemar two door roadster, red in color license plate 1-775 55 Ala. Originally it had a driver only which is missing. The car is covered with grafitti such as 28 skidoo. gone deer hunting, Kilroy was here, post no bills etc. By style it resembles a 1935 or 1936 Packard with large chrome grill and long hood. Missing the windshield and rear spare tire. Closest I have seen to it is a red 4 door Hot rod with a driver and 2 passengers. This model does not have "Hot rod " on its door and is only 2 door with running boards. Anyway its a really neat looking roadster and I would be interested if you have a picture of it and any info. Many Thanks, Will
Hi Will, sounds like a great toy but I've never heard of it or seen one. I recommend this Facebook group where you can post your model and maybe other collectors can answer your questions. Good luck!

Kitchen Mixer, child size would go well with an easybake oven, needs rewiring but not a big job. All parts in tact. I've had in since I was little so over 50 years.
Probably the fastest way to sell would be on eBay.

Hi There, I have a Dino the Dinosaur 1961 linemar mattel tin toy that winds up and he walks and growls. It is in very good condition. Found at an estate sale 3 yrs ago for $3. Saw a few online for around $300. Currently there is one on ebay for $1,500. Could this be accurate? Thank-you!
If you search for Linemar Dino you'll see some more so you can decide for yourself ;-) It is difficult to put an exact price tag on it, and also depends on auctioning on the right moment, which can be tricky.

Worthpoint describes it as "VINTAGE MARX LINEMAR MINIATURE TOY WOOD BURNING LOCOMOTIVE OLD TIMER ELVIN PROD" This one is like new, never played with.Apparently Linemar Marx produced miniature toys under multiple brand names, which is confusing. I also have Elegant Miniatures and others.
Yep, I know the loc you're describing, but I can't find any info on value either... Maybe some day one will show up on eBay again.

I'm afraid not much... When it's in good condition, it's around USD 20-30.

I have the same little blue bird described by Richard on Sept 23, 2015. It was made by LineMar Co Inc., Japan. The eyes don't have painted eyelashes like others in this series nor does it have flappable wings. Mine still works perfectly when wound although I think its little tail was meant to flip up and down and that doesn't happen. It's awfully cute and it sat on my mum's kitchen window sill for at least five decades. It will be interesting to learn its financial value, but frankly, its sentimental value is beyond measure.
Thanks for this :-) To find out value you can go to this page: Linemar bird.

I have a Linemar Music Hall dog at a piano in excellent working condition in the original box, which is also in good condition. I don't think this was ever used. There's not a scratch on the litho. I can't find another one listed or sold on eBay and I'm wondering about a value.
Daddio211 - April 21, 2018
My wife is always surprising me with cool old diecast and stamped steel automotive toys. Yeah, she's amazing!Today she handed me a box with a yellow cabover truck and car trailer made by Linemar. It's remote controlled and takes two C batteries. It's in FANTASTIC condition with just a few nicks. I don't believe it was ever played with. It seems that it came with two or more cars for the trailer as there are depressions for tires. Unfortunately, the additional cars and the box are long gone. Can you give me some history on this piece? Years made? This would never be for sale, but I'm curious what it's value might be.Hopefully the link will work and you can see the photos I posted this evening. Thanks for your time! Link to photos on Facebook.
Whoa, great find! Looks fantastic! Not sure what the value is, can't find a similar one. There are some vintage toys groups on Facebook, you could join one and post your pics there as well.

You could try for parts or reproductions. If it was complete the value would be around 500-700 USD. Without these parts, not sure. Around 200 I guess.

Hello,I am writing for the Browne Popular Culture Library at Bowling Green State University, located in Bowling Green, OH. We just received a donation of a wind up Line Mar Toy - Popeye boxing Bluto. Bluto is wearing a sailor shirt. Can you share with us any information about this toy. What is the year and history of this particular piece. Thank you
Probably 1930s, other than that I don't have any information on this toy. If it's in good shape and still with the original box it can fetch more than 1000 USD.

Can you help me with what it might be worth and the rarity of the piece. Thank you.
Couldn't find it either :-( Maybe you've more luck browsing through these images on Google of Linemar crane battery op. You might find yours...

I have a toy "Space Man" robot that is a wind up. Has been well cared for and still works. I think I received it for Christmas about 1961. I saved it and just rediscovered it last month. What is the approxmitate Value?Thanks,Dale
I think Linemar made different 'Space Man' robots so better check ebay's Completed listings to find yours.
Janet - August 4, 2015
Many thanks for your advice on the Linemar Switchboard Operator. We did put it on ebay and it finished today and got GBP93.00 for it. It has also gone to a collector of tin toys so will have a good home! Better than sitting in my loft! I remember having many hours playing with it when I was a child! It was given to me by my godmother.
Nice to hear it got a good home! I know the feeling of having stuff sitting in boxes doing nothing. Might start selling too ;-)

I have a 1950s Linemar Switchboard Operator. It has it's box if a bit tatty. Wires have disintegrated but girl is in good condition. I have put batteries in and it lights up but arms don't move. Is it worth getting it working properly and would anyone be interested in it. The only one I can find on ebay is for sale for $750 and haven't confirmed it works! Have I got a gem here? Is it really rare?
Well, if the one for 750 is sold for this amount then yes, you have a gem :-) I wouldn't have it fixed though, it'll cost you, chances are you'll have more profit if you put it on ebay like it is now. Another one with box was sold for 320 USD last May BTW.

I have a old tin Pluto, he is no longer in the box and I don't know much about him. Don't know if it matters or not but he has a green collar. Was just wanting to know a little more about him and maybe a value. Thanks so much!
I don't know how many different kinds of tin toy Plutos Linemar made, but here is one or try and locate your version through Google images.

It operates on batteries and contains three teaching boards: National Flags of the Principal Countries of the World, Capitals of the Principal Countries of the World, and Animals of the World. I have not been able to find any information about this Linemar game. If anyone has any information about the Electric Teacher game, please let me know.

I have recently acquired a Linemar Japan windup tin duck fireman with a ladder. Can you provide me with any information on this particular toy and an estimate of the value. Thank you
Do you have the Disney fireman or the Mike Mallard? It depends on state and if it's complete (box, etc.) I saw one on eBay going for around 120 USD (Mike Mallard with box) Disney Donald Duck without box: 85 USD.

I have a linemar jumpy bambi in original box. The toy is excellent shape. I can find no information on this toy except from one that is on eBay. The price there is $750. Is this close to the value or someones pipe dream?
It hasn't been sold yet so you might be right about someones pipe dream ;-) If you want to sell it on eBay try a much lower starting price. It will attract collectors anyway and in the end you can have a little 'bidding war'.

i have a 1962 linemar turnover Flintstone tank, with box and looks like its never been played with and works any idea on worth?
Worth selling, one on eBay fetched 130 dollars without the box. With box I am not sure, but in new condition at least twice as much.

Hi, I have a linemar "flapping ears bubbling pup" in the original box. I can't find that specific item on ebay. I don't think it's ever been used. It even has a tiny plastic bottle that I guess you put the bubbles in. Can you give me any information about the age and value of the item? Thank you!
I saw one on eBay which was sold for 160 USD, not working but with box (also not in good condition).

I have a toy that I'd like to know more about. It is a Line Mar pony express freight wagon (yellow) that says "PONY EXPRESS FREIGHT WAGON Dodge City to Denver" on both sides. Two horses are pulling the wagon, and the driver is intact with a stick he's using to encourage the horses to go. On the back of the wagon is a small piece hanging from the wagon's edge that says "Pikes Peak or bust" with the Line Mar Toys Japan logo next to it in small print. Any information would be helpful. I haven't found it on any toy sites. Thank you!
