Always fun until it gets tangled.

yep, then it's impossible to get out.

Yeah. My mom had to buy a new Slinky every time I messed one up. Sometimes, it wouldn't get tangled. It would just get to the point that 1-3 "slinks" would not be evenly spaced like the other "slinks". At this point, I wasn't able to do the "Slinky-Down-The-Stairs" trick!

loved this toy so much I named my grey striped kittycat Slinky! I mostly just liked shaking it and making the slink-slink-slink noise.

I had a plastic purple Slinky, mine got all tangled up and when I tried to untangle it, it broke, probably because mine was the plastic version. I could never get it to go down stairs that well either.

These were always fun. I discovered that they would stretch ALLLLLLLL THE WAAAAAAYYYY across the room. Then...not so much fun anymore... :P

Who didn't own a Slinky? My sister and I had many. We broke many.

I had many of these in rainbow colours and one in green I think. My sister and I used to let them go down the stairs and we drove our mum mad with it. Mine alway got bent and out of shape after a while but thy were cheap enough to replace good times back then.

I had a few Slinkys in my day. It seemed like no matter how hard you tried to take care of them, they inevitably got irrevocably twisted! Fun while they lasted, though!

I hate that these things tarnish as time goes by.

What I've noticed with the metal Slinkys is that they tarnish over time.
