Hampleman or jumping jack pull and gravity toys first became well known in the mid eighteenth century in France. Thousands were produced in the traditional wooden toy making areas of Germany at that time. They were so popular that it was stated that 'no home should be without one'. The hamplemann is a figure having loose jointed limbs connected by a clever arrangement of strings or cords. When the central cord is pulled the arms and legs rise and then fall in a very amusing manner. Pulling is the initiating force and then tension on the cords lifts the limbs. On release they are forced down again by gravity. Great for bedrooms, nurseries and all types of schools and playgroups. Approximate size: 24 x 1.5 x 28 cms. 200 gms.
