The truly handmade clock and toymaking process of Terrie and Richard Floyd: It starts with Terrie Floyd painting her original designs on paper or wood. Next the image is scanned and printed and the print is laminated on high quality Baltic Birch. Richard then cuts out and sands the parts. Jumping Jacks are assembled using wood pegs or screws for the pivots, and silk cord for the pull strings. The pieces are tested to make sure that they're articulated properly.
Jumping Jacks are Folk Toys, whose origins date back hundreds of years. Known as "Hampelmann" in Germany, and "Le' Pantin" in France, they still hold a fascination for children and collectors alike. The Floyds have been combining their painting, designing, and woodworking talents since 1967. Their work has been exhibited at fine art and craft shows throughout the western U.S. under the name "Toymakers".
Over the years, many people have made a family tradition of collecting and giving the "Toymakers" Jumping Jack Puppets. Because of their whimsical nature, they are as endearing to adults as they are to children. Jumping Jacks make wonderful gifts for any occasion. These "Classic Action Figures" connect with the child within us all. Jumping Jacks are limited to various quantities, after which they are retired and new designs are introduced. They are hand-crafted of the finest materials available and are constructed to be strong, durable, and to withstand normal play of children FOUR YEARS AND OLDER.
Terrie and Richard's clocks use the same process for the image. The quartz movements are Made in the USA and are guaranteed for 10 years. The power source is 1 AA battery. All of Laughing Moon’s clocks and toys are made in their studio / workshop.
