A traditional visual illusion game where brightly coloured wooden blocks appear to cascade down the ribbon! Buy 2 and Save £1.00!
Originating from the Victorian period, Jacob's ladder toys consist of blocks of wood that are held together by ribbons. When the ladder is held at one end, blocks appear to cascade down the ribbons. However, this effect is a visual illusion which is the result of a cleverly hinged action that makes the toy appear to be alive as one block after another flips over! Even when watched closely, it is hard to work out how each one of the tiles tumbles individually.
These toys are endlessly fascinating to children and simple for them to use - you simply hold one of the end pieces on it's side between fingers and thumb, fold the top piece over and watch the ladder 'cascade' down. These high quality toys are easy for children to grip, are hand painted in bright colours and embellished with colourful ribbon detail. They are a lovely traditional game that will provide lots of fun for children of all ages and are also educational as they are a great means of developing childrens dexterity skills. This traditional wooden toy makes a great stocking filler or Christmas tree gift, and is also the perfect little additional present to accompany a larger gift.
