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.

          Comments about Toys R Us 1001153 Slinky:

          The Slinky has been around for many years and depicts what we recall childhood to be; fun simplicity. This is a great toy to buy for children of almost any age that will keep them occupied and keep them creative. The slinky is simple, fun, and entertaining. You can use a slinky on stairs in any home or even in the palm of your hand. It has a simple design yet is intriguing for children. The only thing tht I would suggest is to order one in a specific color tht your child will enjoy. This is a classic toy.

              This classic toy still offers hours of fun. Running it down the stairs or just keeping it in your hands, the Slinky ingrains some basic physics concepts in your head. Its compact size is begging to be brought with you on car trips or trips to the corner market, and can distract anyone for hours. No assembly required.

                Comments about Toys R Us 1001153 Slinky:

                The original slinky was a suggestion for putting in a shoe box to ship to children across the world for Christmas. I chose to buy them because I was familiar with the toy. I have one that my adult son received in a Christmas exchange about four years ago. It sits on a book shelf and every so often I would pick it up and start playing with it. It is very sturdy and will last.

                              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.
