I bought these to give away for birthday presents. For under $2 each, they make great gifts to add to a bag. They work well and even my 3 year old can do it. The only con is that is has the name oriental trading company and made in china stamped on it. It definitely cheapens the gift b/c of that!

Best purchase so far
My sixth grade students loved these! They buy from my classroom store with "Bucks" they earn. They asked me to buy more "Jacob's Ladders" as the first order I purchased sold really fast! I would highly recommend these. They are very intriguing to the kids and they have fun playing with them!

This is a good product. Showed it to both my 18 year old and my 13 year old sons and they both loved it. This is good for "kids" of all ages

Great Memories in the Making
Grandparents gave us these when we were kids. Always a mystery, always enjoyed! A bit smaller than I'd hoped, but well-made and will be enjoyed!

I bought this for the Christmas goody bags for the kids on Christmas with family. We have several little ones in the family so we all do goody bags...I got them because they were unique and entertaining. I liked the quality and the colors. I checked this at retail store and would have had to pay much more for about the same item. Worth the money!

Great For Everyone!
I used these for stocking stuffers last Christmas and everyone loved them! Even Grandma and Grandpa enjoyed playing with them. Some of the children had never seen them before so it was a treat watching them trying to figure out how they work. I highly recommend these!

Intriguing but Simple Enough for a Child
I purchased these for stocking gifts at our family Christmas party. They are intriguing enough for the adults to enjoy while simple enough a toddler can have fun playing with them. I know they will be a hit! Thanks for offering them at a reasonable price!

A hit with 3rd graders
My child's teacher requested items for the class treasure chest and this is one of the items I shipped directly to the school. I never even got to see them because they were such a hit and were the first things picked. The kids were crazy about them and thanked me profusely when I visited the school. My son was disappointed that he didn't get one so it looks like I'll be ordering more! For some reason, they kept referring to them as "Mexican Yo-Yo's" so at first I didn't know what they were talking about.

I own a resort in cetral Minnesota with a small gift shop. This was one item that I tried selling at the resort. The product is actually a great quality for the value. A couple of the ladders didn't work. The ribbon was either a little to close or the pieces of wood between the ribbon came off. Nothing that a little bit of super glue couldn't fix. Children seem to like the product and enjoy playing with it!
