A classic toy takes on a distinctly bookish bent with our entertaining Magic Library Jacob's Ladder
. Six hand-painted wooden "books" (including Moby Dick, Beloved
, and The Great Gatsby
) are laced together with brown ribbon, flipping and falling over one another in an entrancing display. Revisit an old favorite toy or introduce a young reader to the mind-bending behavior of this simple contraption. Ages 3 and up.
