    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.

              I think every child should experience a slinky I did growing up. My 4 year old loves it she puts it on top of the stairs so it can go down. It wouldnt go down easily when it was new but it does know.

                        I bought the Slilnky for my little boys 9th birthday as it is a product I enjoyed when I was a child. He loves it, except inorder for it to work correctly (the way I remember it working) is to have quite narrow stairs which are not so easy to find these days. I would suggest that in the making of this product in the future, it shold be engineered to work going down wider sets of stairs in order to get complete enjoyment from it. Thank you

                        A classic. Loved it when I was a kid so when we moved into a new house that has a stair case I had to get one for the kids. My 4yo loves it. My 19mon is still trying to deside if he likes it or should be afraid. :) I have bought several plastic cheap slinkys, this is worth the extra. It has the weight and stiffness you need to send it walking down the stairs. We love it.

                              It looks like the slinky I remember as a kid, but it does not go down the steps like it used to. It goes down the first step you start it on, then it stops or turns and rolls down the rest of the way. Many adults have tried to get it to work on several different types of staircases without success. It is better than the plastic slinkys which get all tangled up within 5 minutes.
