Jacob's Ladder (the folding blocks in the center of this image) is one of the most ancient and famous #folk toys, dating back to at least 1352 B.C.
The toy was incredibly popular during the 18th century and was one of the only toys children could play with on Sundays. It was named after the biblical ladder to heaven mentioned in the Book of Genesis.
Other popular toys included hoops, kites, jump ropes, and spinning tops.
