The Finger Trap – short length

Ask a friend to push a finger into each end. It’s easy, but when they try to remove their fingers by pulling them out, the more they pull the more the trap tightens on their fingers. Judging from the appearance of the sample label on one of the traps, the origin is probably Japan. The illustrated advertisement is from a Davenports catalogue.
