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 wanted to get my son this toy because it brings back so many memories of simpler times for me. He was so happy when he saw it. He's always wanted one ever since the movie Toy Story.
        Love to see him entertain himself without a tablet or a computer. =)

        A timeless classic. My 3 year-old Daughter has a Slinky Jr, and loves imitating the countless things I do with mine, right down to pretending to be elephants.

                This is the same slinky you played with in the 80s, as far as I can tell. My three-year-old loves it, even though he mangled it about two minutes after he had it in his possession. Great toy, same as always.
