Limberjacks are replicas of traditional toys which probably originated in Ireland several hundred years ago. They imitated the clog dancers who jigged noisily to music in their hob-nailed boots. They were carried to America by our settlers who enjoyed hand-carving toys for their families amusement.
Limberjack continues to delight new generations with sprightly dance and tapping feet.He develops a child's sense of rhythm and coordination; he is used in school rhythm bands, social studies course and story sessions. He is a bit of a celebrity, appearing in many folk music concerts, children's TV programs and the feature movie "My Side of the Mountain".
Limberjacks are handcrafted in Vermont of solid native hardwood by people who enjoy what they do as befits a classic toy with an appeal to the child in us at any age.
