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.

            This product is a true original toy. I love to play with it, it helps when I get depressed, but I bought many for my kids, and Toys -R-Us is about the only place I can find the original slinky. This has now become a family tradition for Christmas stocking stuffers.

                    I had a slinky 55 years ago. It was this same product. I was surprised that my grandchild requested this for Christmas. It still walks down stairs and is fun to just wiggle.

                          The slinky is not built nearly as well as the ones that I had when I was a kid. I was able to find one of the metal ones which is a million times better than the plastic ones
