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.

      I bought the Slinky because I saw a video that if putting the Slinky on the birdfeeder pole, the squirrels couldn't get to the birdfeeder! I hope it works.

          As a child, I got one for Christmas. I bought it for my children and was looking for it for a birthday present. There wasn't any in stock, so the salesperson directed my attention to a lion faced and tail slinky. My grandson loves it.

                    I bought this for another reason than as a toy. I placed it on a bird feeding pole to deter squirrels from climbing it. Works like a charm! Still a reasonable price. Bought another one for my granddaughter and she lives it!

                    Bought this for my 3 year old son and my 8 year old now is asking for one as well because they are fighting over it. It is good quality and appears that it will last a long while (better than plastic I think).

                            All four of my boys, ages 3-8, love this slinky! The size and weight allow it to go down our stairs correctly, unlike like those cheap plastic ones. This slinky has withstood the tug-o-wars, falls from the banister and anything else my boys have done to it!
