First released in 1961, the original series of Disneykins is commonly referred to as the First Series. The 34 classic Disney character figures in this set were available in some form untill the early 1970s and the sale of the Marx company.

The series was sold in the following Marx box formats: individually boxed figures, TV-Scenes, Playsets, and a large "Gift" box set. Store Displays were also available. For more information see the listing in the Disneykins Database™.

The First Series Disneykins List:
This paper list illustrates the 34 figures that comprise the original Disneykins "First" series. It was printed on thin paper and came with all individual Disneykins packaged in the small closed boxes (see photos bottom right & left). Most individual boxes purchased today are missing this list.

The thirty four figures in the First Series are the most common Disneykins. Many of the characters from specific films were later augmented with additional cast members in the Second Series.
