Product Description

Product Description

The POOF-Slinky 101 Metal Original Slinky continues to be a constant entertainer as it walks down stairs or comes alive in a child's hands. This classic toy stretches like an accordion, bounces and walks down steps one end at a time while making that classic Slinky sound. Toy history was made when Richard James conducted an experiment with tension springs. During the experiment, one of the springs fell to the floor and began to “walk”. The Slinky debuted 1945 at Gimbals Department Store in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and all (400) Slinkys for sale were purchased in 90-minutes. Since then, over 300-million Slinkys have been sold worldwide. The Slinky is filled with nostalgia and has been featured in Disney Pixar’s “Toy Story” movie franchise. It's the official state toy of Pennsylvania and famous for one of the most popular jingles of all time, “It’s Slinky”. Though it was developed to be a toy, the Slinky was used by soldiers in Vietnam as an antenna and a therapy tool for hand-eye coordination. This original Slinky is made of silver metal for long lasting wiggly-jiggly Slinky fun! The POOF-Slinky 101 Metal Original Slinky comes packaged in a blister card, made in the U.S.A. and perfect for presents, party favors, Easter baskets, grab bags, prizes and stocking stuffers. The Slinky is truly a timeless toy, fun for adults and kids alike. The POOF-Slinky 101 Metal Original Slinky is recommended for children 5-years of age and older. POOF-Slinky is the manufacturer of the world famous Slinky and the top selling POOF foam sport balls in North America, both manufactured in Plymouth, MI and Hollidaysburg, PA. Ideal and Scientific Explorer are other well-known brands, rounding out the POOF-Slinky family. With roots in the toy industry for over 100-years, POOF-Slinky brands continue to grow and broaden.

Provides hours of fun for the grandchildren.

When we received our order we were pleasantly surprised by the substantial quality of metal in the slinky.

Because of the small size, it would not "walk" down the stairs.

This is not the "original" slinky, it is much smaller and much shorter. Good for nothing, I am returning this item. I wonder if anyone at Amazon reads these reviews, if so, they should do something about allowing companies to falsely advertise their products.Original Metal Slinky on Blister Card

There needs to be dimensions listed because I thought this would be much bigger in diameter than it was. Because of the small size, it would not "walk" down the stairs. I guess if you had really steep stairs, it would, but most treads are 10-11" and it just doesn't work. I remember the slinky being bigger than this. So I am returning it and going to order the plastic one that is bigger to see if it works better.

Although this says "Original Metal Slinky", this is small in diameter,
does not "walk" down stairs, or on small stair stepped items. Kids did have fun pulling on them and such for which they are not made.
If you want the real slinky that you remember as a kid, this is not it.

I bought this slinky for my grandsons to play with because I had already bought two very small ones plus a game that has several slinkys in it for construction. It kept them entertained for hours, as long as you can find a place for the slinky to "walk", which we made for them.

It seems smaller than than what I played with as a kid. Then again my hands are bigger. That said, it needs steep stairs to walk down well.

This edition of the slinky has a gorgeous high gloss finish. One side of the wire is glossier than the other, but it's bright and shiny overall. If you want something really high quality looking to sit on your desk, this is a nice one! Doesn't leave dirt or corrosion on your hands.

This may be the "original" version, but it is NOT the popular version that kids enjoyed years ago. This skinny little item is a heavyweight compared to its limber, popular cousin. This does not even "walk" down stairs. It sits there and waits to be pushed. Then it stops on the next step and sits again .. and so forth. NO FUN. I have fond memories of the old metal slinky and have worn out plastic versions with the kids. This one, claiming to the original, may not be a misrepresentation. But I doubt Slinky would have won any fans if it stayed this way. Ugh! A genuine disappointment. Sad.

This Slinky is noticeably smaller and lighter weight than the Slinkys I remember from my own childhood in the 60s - 70s. I would guess it's about 1/3 smaller. The difference in dimensions affects how well it performs its various Slinky tricks. In addition, each of the end pieces of the coil have a rather rough metal "tab" that is a bit rough on little kid hands. It is NOT an original Slinky and to advertise it as such is misleading.
