Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.



The Marx Toy Corporation of New York produced many different kinds of playthings during its long run of productivity. Especially known for products in printed metal as well as plastic, the firm produced a bagatelle around the middle of the 20th century that utilizes both materials. Like so many similar games of skill, this imitates the function of a large pinball machine, allowing a player to shoot for high points. The game's bright graphics declare "every ball counts."
