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.

      Love the timeless slinky

      By Roe

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Toys R Us 1001153 Slinky:

      We bought the slinky to use on our bird feeder post in hopes that the squirrels won't be able to climb up and leave our birds seedless. However, before we installed the slinky, we had to let it "walk" down on stairs! We're waiting to see what happens with the squirrels, who have their own feeding station!

          Comments about Toys R Us 1001153 Slinky:

          The five year old asked for one, after I explained about them. As soon as it got home, every kid from 5-16 wanted to get their hands on it!
          It doesn't do anything fancy, of course, but they all learned something clever to do with it.

          It is very durable for a slinky, large enough to go down the stairs and terrifying to the cat.
