Jumping Cleopatra

This was a gift to John Davenport from Tony Middleton in 2014. If you know the secret, you can place Cleopatra on the couch. If you don’t, she leaps off the couch when you put her on it. The concept of this magnetic novelty goes back many decades. Manufactured in Taiwan for Bits & Pieces, Allston, Massachusetts, USA.
