From the Manufacturer

The POOF-Slinky 8-1005 Collector’s Edition 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. The Slinky is filled with nostalgia and has been featured in the Disney Pixar “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 Collector’s Edition Slinky is made of black durable metal to provide long lasting wiggly-jiggly Slinky fun! The Collector’s Edition Slinky comes in a retro box as it did in 1945, made in the U.S.A., individually boxed 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 Slinky is truly a timeless toy, fun for adults and kids alike. The POOF-Slinky 8-1005 Collector’s Edition Metal Original Slinky is recommended for children 6-years of age and older.

Who didn't like their Slinky?

I bought an "original" one for my kids, but it was too short to go down the stairs. So then I bought this super retro original. Same deal, older box.

I found out that Slinky was sold to Proof, they shortened it by about 20% to save cash, but it doesn't work anymore. Why not just raise the price 20% and sell ones that work?

Update: Count Your Coils. The original 1945-1990? Slinky used 80 feet of steel wire, had 98 coils, and was 2.50 inches tall. The new ones (Poof) are closer to 63 feet of steel and 80 coils. Count your coils.

I loved Slinky as a child, gave one to each of my kids, and keep one on my desk at work to use when I need to think thru a problem. This particular slinky leaves a black residue on your hands that requires soap and water to wash off. It comes off so easy that I assume it would dirty your clothes too. I do not recomend this 1945 Collector's Edition for children or for anything more than a visual display. Buy the silver one if you want to handle it.

I remember the Slinky and how much we liked it when I was a child. I read the reviews on all the Slinky's, and
they said they were shorter than the good ones were, and that they didn't go down the stairs. I finally decided on
this one, THINKING it looked a little better because it said "COLLECTOR'S EDITION METAL ORIGINAL SLINKY".
IF THAT ISN'T FALSE ADVERTISING PROVE IT, PROVE THAT IT IS THE SIZE AND QUALITY OF THE ORIGINAL
SLINKY. THE ORIGINAL SLINKY WORKED AND WENT DOWN STAIRS, THIS ONE DOES NOT. I remember the original
slicky well, it was of great quality and went down ALL steps and stairs without hesitation and was great. This is garbage in my view, inferior in my opinion, and a cheap replica that does nothing but disappoint children.

I sent it to my grandson for his birthday, and WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT, this thing does NOT go down ANY stairs, inside, or outside and SHAME on the manufacturer of this cheap item that could with little expense make it work. I am disgusted, feel victimized, and have contempt for the fact that now we cannot depend upon the quality in products that are advertised to be what they are not. Now we spend our money buying from people who are cutting quality and selling products that don't even do what they are supposed to do? This product does NOT go down stairs, which is what it is sold to do. I guess if someone sells at a high volume they don't care if children are disappointed with a gift that is worthless, after all, it is all about the money now, right?

i don't know how people are complaining about the slinky not working on the stairs. i have 13 steps on my stairs and the steps is 12inc wide and 8inc high and im able to get mine down all the way fine with no issues. as for the black coating it hasn't been coming off and nor getting every where like some reviews saying it was. i made a video and the slinky i used a different slinky in the video that been cut shorter at least lost 5 coils been cut off it and it gets down my steps fine. this is a great item.

I was excited to order this because our teenage son and his friends will still play around with these. It got here fast. However the slinky box wasn't even put together. The slinky slid out when I tried to pick up box. There was nothing holding the box together, even when you got it folded the correct way. I had to tape the box to keep it from falling apart again. The slinky itself is thicker then I thought, which is great. I don't see this tangling up very easily.

Did you hear that everyone loves a slinky? Because everyone does. People who don't are not people. They're from the 5th dimension. And are jerks.

Don't give in to 5th dimension jerks.

In all seriousness though, trying using a slinky as a noteholder. They're spectacular for this.

This is my FAVORITE slinky by far. Everyone asks where I got it from! The fact that it is black and does not discolor or make your hands black is GREAT. I also feel like it is slightly thicker than most Slinky's sold in store.

Pretty cool!. Item as described. Possibly smaller than what I remembered from childhood but good enough for today's use. Good office desk accessory. I use this to kill time and/or to help think things through.
