Nineteenth Century Toy – German Jacks-on-a-string (Jumping-Jacks)

The Jacks-on-strings are a very mixed company. They are all dressed up in their best clothes, and they wear particularly fine hats. Some look like soldiers, some like Punch, but they are all in jolly mood. f you pull the string they jerk their arms and legs about very quickly, and are quite full of joy. They do make you laugh then.
