Looking for a special gift for someone? Look no further then this fun Original Slinky! A precompressed helical spring, the 'slinky', was first created in the 1940s and the name was formed from the words 'steel' and 'graceful'. It was first founded by a naval engineer by the name of Richard James.

It can perform a number of tricks, including travelling down a flight of steps end-over-end as it stretches and re-forms itself with the aid of gravity and its own momentum. Juggle it from hand to hand and watch it walk down slopes or stairs. Slinky stretches, snaps back, and makes the famous slinkity sound. Fun for children, therapeutic for adults! Slinky, everyone's favourite walking spring toy!  A family classic since 1945, it makes a great gift.

Suitable for ages 5 and above.
