Jacob's Ladder antique toy

Regular price €37,00

Jacob's Ladder is one of the most ancient and famous folk optical toys. Legend has it that one was found in King Tut's tomb, which means these toys were played with in Egypt before 1352 B. C. 

What is really true that these toys date back to pilgrim times in America and were made by indigenous craftsmen throughout Mexico.

Mundane wooden puzzle turns into an imaginative magic trick which challenges and educates at the same time: hold the top block with the single ribbon facing outward, then rotate the wrist forward and backward and watch the blocks fall. A creative gift and interactive gadget for people of all ages.
