This song is the 18th track from "Something to Sing About". It's one of the tracks that were specially recorded for its release.
"The Marvelous Toy" is the first "successful" song Tom Paxton has ever written. It was recorded by The Chad Mitchell Trio, Peter Paul & Mary, John Denver and countless others. Tom himself has recorded it many times through the years:
1. I'm the Man That Built the Bridges, 1962;
2. Outward Bound (bonus track), 1966;
3. Morning Again (bonus track), 1968;
4. The Compleat Tom Paxton, 1970;
5. Children's Songbook, 1974;
6. The Very Best of Tom Paxton, 1987;
7. A Child's Christmas, 1992.
Still, this version is different from any above recording.
