The Original Slinky Walking Spring Toy
There’s only one Original Slinky Brand! Celebrate 75 years of wiggly-jiggly fun with Slinky! Generations of children and adults have loved playing with Slinky. This classic metal spring toy walks downstairs, alone or in pairs, and makes a slink-ity sound. First invented by mechanical engineer Richard James in 1943 during an experiment with tension coils. James accidentally dropped a spring on the floor and watched as it began to “walk.” Two years later, he introduced his walking spring toy in Gimbels Department Store during Christmas, and the Slinky immediately sold out. Since its debut, over 300 million Slinkys have been sold worldwide. In 2000, this classic toy was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame. Slinky is proudly made in America and continues to be a favorite toy of children and adults all over the world. Slinky is fun for a girl or a boy and makes an ideal gift, stocking stuffer, prize, or present. Everyone loves a Slinky! Ages 5+

We wrapped the slinky around the top of the "T" shaped pole and let it hang down the pole about halfway. When the squirrels run up the pole and climb onto the slinky, they get an elevator ride to the ground! It does not hurt the squirrels, and it saves the bird food for the birds. We have been using the slinky in this manner for a week and so far the squirrels have not figured out a way around it.
I enjoyed playing with a slinky as a kid, and now I enjoy it just as much as an adult :)
UPDATE: We have been using the slinky on our bird feeder for a few months now and not a single squirrel has made it to the feeder. I'm uploading some pics so you can see how it works.

Does not climb down a standard set of UK stairs like the original spring did when I was younger.
The coil is much too rigid and does not flex enough to "roll over itself" so it just falls down stairs like a steel can.
Also the last coil is clipped to the end of the spring, but the clips are badly finished and razor sharp, cut myself on it trying to demonstrate how it worked to my nephew. Certainly wouldn't let a child play with it.
Only left 1 star as 0 wasn't an option.
And I set out to video the wonderful way it walks down the stairs for the benefit of Amazon customers.
But it only did 3 stairs max before collapsing on itself and having to be rescued.
It's not as big as I remember from childhood either.
To be fair, they do actually like to sit with it and muck around with it in their hands, but for going down stairs, it's a no from me.
