I recently bought these on eBay, 5 out of 6 of the small sets in plastic cases of Marx Miniature Farm.
There were also at least 4, possibly 5 or 6, slightly larger plastic case sets, and at least one rather larger cardboard window carton farm set.
Like all the Marx Miniature ranges (also Noah's Ark, Castle/Knights/Vikings, Cowboys/Indians, American Civil War, Disneykins), they were made for the mainly US based Marx company in Hong Kong, and were factory painted.

The farm series are either reduced size versions of Marx's 1:32 farm range or near copies of the 1950s plastic Britains/Herald farm range.
For size comparison purposes photos include a 1:32 Britains/Herald girl with bucket (+ in one case a hen).

Hard plastic figures in hard plastic cases (both grey base & transparent top).

It was a long wait to buy them, as they were on 'Buy it now'. first at UK£40 the lot for several weeks, then down to £37, then eventually down to £30 (in all cases including free P&P) = £6 per set.
I thought this was a bargain price, as the equivalent C&I or ACW sets usually sell for about £20 to £25 each set.
The Disneykins figures/sets, especially the 101 Dalmatians range are usually expensive too - there are a lot of Disney collectors.

That is a good price even here in the US where they are slightly more common. They are relatively rare everywhere I think. The Noah's Ark set I have uses these same animals in it as well as the wild ones. The figures are only from the farm sets though.

Interesting!  I have some of the animals and a couple of the human figures but got mine in a large mixed lot of vintage toys on ebay.  I didn't know they were made by Marx! Shocked
