A classic toy that delights every time. My daughter is 4 and loves it. It's not easy for her to get the slinky started on the steps, because it's tricky until you get the hang of it, but she asks Daddy to do it over and over. A child a year or two older would have no trouble. We bought the regular slinky for my daughter for Xmas and a miniature one for her baby doll's stocking. Both are fun, but the little one can't do regular stairs. You have to make smaller steps out of boxes or something (which there are plenty of at Xmas time, or birthdays). Makes a nice inexpensive gift for birthday parties.

We purchased the metal Slinky for our son thinking it would hold up better than the plastic version. He is very careful with his toys, so I expected this to last for a long time. When we opened it, the metal was much thinner than I remember the one I had as a child was. I showed him the stair trick, which even on our narrow basement stairs performed poorly. I left him to try on his own, and not five minutes later he came up with a bent Slinky. Unlike my childhood version (that would only bend like that after some abuse,) this one would not bend back in place properly.

            I wouldn't buy this again. No sooner did I remove it from the box, it twisted itself & was no longer a toy my 8yr old could play with. He was upset about his slinky.

                        I think every child should experience a slinky I did growing up. My 4 year old loves it she puts it on top of the stairs so it can go down. It wouldnt go down easily when it was new but it does know.

                              My 13 year old son saw this and had to have a "real" slinky. Aesome that toys from my childhood still hold their own over all the electronics and new stuff
