Jumping King Tutankhamun

This was a gift to John Davenport from Tony Middleton in 2014. If you know the secret, you can put King Tut in the sarcophagus. If you don’t, he jumps out when you put him in it. The concept of this magnetic novelty goes back many decades. Manufactured in Taiwan for Bits & Pieces, Allston, Massachusetts, USA.
