Jacob’s Ladder is a fascinating and absorbing Victorian toy with an interesting history. Known as ‘Magic Tablets’ by the Spanish and apparently highly favored by Puritans as a quiet toy with biblical connections! It’s an amazing contraption made of slats of wood bound cleverly together with ribbons. Its movements seem impossible to the eye.
- Folded, it measures 2¾ × 2 × 2 in (7 × 5 × 5 cm)
- Made in the USA of wood and ribbon
- Not suitable for children under 3 years of age as small parts may present a choking hazard
- Available only online, and at the Moses Myers House
