The product was originally purchased as nostalgia, but quickly became a new favorite for our little four year old girl. She played with it often, experimenting with it on the steps and on chairs and tables, as well as using it for pretend play--two words: "wobbly jello."

As far as holding its shape goes, it withstood all the beatings and dings for about a week. Afterward, one end became less taut to the rest of the body and there were a few tangle encounters. Those expected problems were an easy fix. It is still functioning.

(Great thing about the metal slinky compared to the plastic: it lasts longer and can handle being bent.)

For the price, the slinky offers a surprisingly abundant amount of educational fun. It will most likely remain a classic for even future generations.

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.

              My son loves slinkys and this is a great one. He has had it for a little over a week and hasn't tangled it up yet. It's very sturdy and durable.

              This slinky is bunk (not in a good way). It doesn't even go up the stairs. It just sits there, taunting me. Back in my day, slinkys could go up walls, trees, cross water, you name it! I feel like a cheeto and my neice's birthday is RUINED. But you know, that's how it's post to be...

                        This slinky is simple, silly and fun! It is amazing to watch a child be so fascinated by a toy that isn't full of hi tech gadgets and nonsense. I grew up playing with slinky-s and now I get play again with my daughter! Great no nonsense toy!

                          Easy to use with younger children. Does all the tricks the one I had as a child did. Heavier in weight than the plastic version, won't tangle like the plastic version. Great price point . Hours of non electric fun.
