Description

The POOF-Slinky 100 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 metal for long lasting wiggly-jiggly Slinky fun! The Slinky is 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 POOF-Slinky 100 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. New generations of kids, their parents and grandparents have proven that classic toys never go out of style!

Editorial Review

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
