Close up coils

What walks down stairs, alone or in pairs and makes a slinkity sound?



A spring, a spring, a marvelous thing, Everyone knows it's Slinky.


It's Slinky! It's Slinky! For fun, it's a wonderful toy. It's Slinky! It's Slinky!It's fun for a girl and a boy. It's fun for a girl and a boy.


When googling Slinky, I discovered it's Slinky's 60th anniversary! I like the old school metal ones so much better than the plastic ones. As a kid I could never get mine to march down the stairs like they did in the commercial. Maybe two or three steps on a good day. And, how many of you ended up with a hopelessly tangled mess when Slinky ended up on the bottom of the toy box?

I loved the way they'd make your hands smell all metallicy wierd or the way if you wore it as a bracelet it would pinch your arm hairs. But maybe I was a very hairy child...

I loved slinky...I would play with it for hours just to listen to the sound it made, I could never get it to do much down the stairs either, but none the less fun fun fun
