The limberjack, known variously as a jig doll, slapjack, jiggerman, limberjim, limberjill, dancin' dan, paddle puppet and yankee-doodle dancer, is a wooden musical instrument which consists of a doll with loose joints on the end of a long stick, the legs of which the performer causes to tap rhythmically on a thin wooden board as if clogging. It is particularly popular in the U.S. region of Appalachia.

This one was being played by a student in my school at a musical assembly.
