A novelty toy, entitled, 'The Jumping Suffragette' or, 'How the Suffragette Lost Her Head'. Consists of a plastic doll, dressed in the colours and a Votes for Women sash, carrying an umbrella. The leaflet gives instructions in both English and French. (Refers to 'The Jumpies' as if this was one of a set?) 'This consists of a figure with a detachable head. Remove head from figure, place figure on table and press the head firmly into the neck, which causes a pin within the figure to penetrate the table. Raise the figure, when the head will spring off.' Date: circa 1909
