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.

Doesn't go down stairs

By Whiskeyslinger

Comments about Toys R Us 1001153 Slinky:

I had a metal slinky when I was a kid, and my sisters and I used to flip it over itself from the top stair of our staircase, and it would continue to flip over itself one stair at a time all the way to the bottom of the staircase. I bought this product for my little niece for her birthday. I told her what mine used to do on the stairs (which is what I expected this product to do also). This slinky would not flip over itself down the stairs like the one I had as a kid did. I was very disappointed in this product, and my niece was let down on her birthday. Unless you just want to hold this product in both hands, and pump it like an accordion, I wouldn't buy it.

          My 4 year old got a small plastic slinky as a birthday party favor and insisted on getting a large one. We don't even have the right kind of stairs for this and he still loves playing with this toy. It is so simple but still a lot of fun for young kids.

                              My family hadn't had a fun Christmas in a long time. So, I suggested we exchange gifts they were under $25 and had to be purchased from Toys "R" Us. We did the East Coast version of white elephant known as cutthroat. Each of our thirteen family members pulled a number one through 13 out of the hat.I got number 13 and thought that was a bummer, I was last. My sister was first and then my mom and then my dad and my brother and my brother-in-law and my brother-in-law's two boys then my husband then my nephew, then my sister's mother-in-law and then me. When it got to me, I took the Slinky back from my sister. And we all played games such as "Slinky" on the stairs, "trouble" and "Chess." We hadn't had this much fun in a long time. it's now Our new tradition. We felt like kids again. Thank you toys R us!
