Our new half size version of this traditional folk toy is a delightful and practical addition to Faire Tyme Toys' inventory. Manufactured in kit form it can be easily put together and, in short order, any young lad or lass will be spinning good old Jenny up and down her wooden track! Still available in medium size but no longer available in large.
