The Original Slinky is a timeless classic that has been entertaining children and adults for over 75 years. This metal spring toy walks downstairs and makes a distinctive slink-ity sound.

Slinky was 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 in amazement 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 then, over 300 million Slinkys have been sold worldwide. In 2000, this classic toy was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame. To this day the Slinky remains a beloved favorite among people of all ages.
