Everyone loves a Slinky®! This original spring toy is famous with children all over the world. It stretches, snaps back, and makes a "slinkity sound." Made in USA!
Long a favorite of kids and physics instructors alike, Slinky is the consummate entertainer as it walks down the stairs or comes alive in a child's hands. Slinky originated in 1945 as part of an antivibration device developed by American naval engineer Richard James, who thought the spring might be a successful toy because of its comical walking behavior. Over half a century later, Slinky still lives. -- Joan DeClaire
