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.

    I used the Slinky as a foil for squirrels on my bird feeder ........ and it works ! I simply
    hung it over my shepherd's hook feeder ........ and another over the chain holding my
    hanging feeder. Magic !

                  My son loves to play with this. He is 4 and always breaks the plastic slink's within a day or so. This is durable and can be taken with on the go!

                      It was a stocking stuffer for my 3 year old son. He loves it! He has been pretty hard on it considering how much time he has spent playing with it, and it's only gotten a slight bend in one of the coils that's hardly noticeable and doesn't affect Slinkys performance.

                          As with all slinkys and younger children. It doesn't take long for it to get bend out of shape. Not a fault of the maker, it's just that children don't understand that you can't pull it out of shape.
