George Washington played here! Mount Vernon frequently echoed with exuberant childhood laughter, and even George is sure to have mastered the challenging ball and cup toy, a delightful colonial game of skill. Though George and Martha had no children of their own, George was "generous and attentive" father to his stepchildren "Jacky" and "Patsy", and an especially doting grandfather to Martha's grandchildren, "Nelly" and "Washy" Custis. A traditional wooden folk toy popular with both adults and children for generations, the ball and cup toy provides hours of entertainment. Test your hand-eye coordination. Hold the cup in one hand, give the cup a swinging motion that causes the ball to swing upward, and catch the ball in the cup! Measures 1 ½" wide x 7 ½".
