Jacob's Ladder Wooden Toy
This beautiful wooden Jacob's Ladder with gorgeous illustrations by Moulin Roty is part of their Les Petit Marveilles collection. The Jacob's Ladder (also known as a flip flap) is a classic tumbling blocks wooden toys that has it's origins from the Pilgrim days. Hold the top block and watch as the other blocks magically cascade down the flipping wooden blocks one after the other. Turn it around and it will do it again. Beautiful to see old fashion technology at work. Interestingly, the Rubic's cube mechanism shares a similarity to the Jacob's Ladder.
