Magic Spring Slinky
Ah...the "Good Old Days," when life was simple and so were the toys. This fun "Magic Spring" is made from galvanized steel and great fun for ages 6 an older. Watch how the "Magic Spring" can go down stairs, or jump back and forth on your hands. From the first versions of this toy in 1945, and now re-emerging as a simple, fun toy. Kids can ask Grandma or Grandpa how this one works.

According to Wikipedia the Slinky was invented by Richard James in the early 1940's. Used as a toy since then the interesting characteristics of the slinky has kept is as a best selling toy around the world. All I know is I spent hours making this gravity powered toy stretch and reform a million times through the late sixties and early seventies. A Slinky makes a great retro gift.
