Rated 5 out of 5Â by POORPEARL A RETURN IN TIME
The Slinky was a gift entree to a memoir I wrote in celebration of our family living in our home for 60 years. In has been passed down to me from my mother. I gave a copy of the memoir plus a toy from the time we were growing up here to my brothers and sister. My younger brother received the slinky and he laughed and immediately stepped back in time and started to laugh about all the fun he had with his first one. It made for a great Christmas present

IT WAS 3 WEEKS BEFOR OUR CHRISTMAS VACATION FROM I.I.T. , I LANDED A JOB IN MARSHALL FIELDS TO EARN ENOUGH MONEY TO TAKE THE TRAIN HOME TO NORTHERN WIS. TWO SATURDAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS I SOLD 364 SLINKIES IN ONE DAY. SET A RECORD FOR ONE DAY SALE AT THAT TIME. 68 YEARS LATER I PURCHASED ONE FOR MY 9 YEAR OLD GRANDSON FOR CHRISTMAS, HE LOVED IT!!!

My siblings and I enjoyed playing with Slinkies throughout our childhood, but the only "Slinkies" I could find for my grandchildren were plastic. They loved playing with them -- for a short time until the "Slinkies" lost their shape. My husband was thrilled to find "the real McCoy" in your catalog, and our two adorable grandchildren are so happy to be able to play with them without the Slinkies losing their shape after a few hours. So glad you still have some of the good ol' toys!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Harv932 Will not walk down stairs
I had an original Slinky when I was a kid. They did walk down stairs. This replica, while sturdily constructed, is considerably smaller than the original Slinky and will not walk down normal sized stairs. My wife, who was nostalgic about the idea of having a Slinky, was disappointed with this gift for that reason.

I find the slinky to be very relaxing. When things get maddening at work, I just take out my slinky and rock it back and forth in my hands. Both the feel and sound are very soothing and after a couple of minutes I ready to return to work

She was amazed and played quite awhile with it, trying new things after getting tired of going up and down the steps. Great to see old toys never go out of style. Thanks...
