    It walks the stair without a care
    It shoots so high in the sky
    Bounce up and down just like a clown
    Everyone knows it slinky
    The best present yet to give or get
    the kids will all want to try
    the hit of the day when your ready to play
    everyone knows it's slinky


    Slinky never lasted long in my house, but I've still got that song stuck in my head!
    I don't know about you, Miss Kitty, but I feel so much... yummier

          I remember having a purple slinky, it was fun for about 10 minutes, then that was it.

            Whenever I got a slinky it always got tangled somehow.. Then it was broken after like 10 minutes. But if i found a metal slinky for sale some where i would buy it in a second.

              Slinky is still a good toy I played with one the other day in a store.lol lol
              It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

                  I was very disappointed when my plastic slinky did not walk down the stairs, like they showed it doing in the commerical.

                    There's a guy on here- Radiumcat who has an awesome sig "Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good for anything, but you can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs".

                      I hated the plastic slinkys.

                      The metal ones were cool :) Mine always walked down the stairs...sometimes only t or 3 stairs, but mostly the whole flight :)

                          As a kid, I remember that my neighbor and I tried to straighten his Slinky but, it was made in plastic and we got it broken, instead.

                              I had a metal one, a plastic neon orange one, and an imitation rainbow heart shaped one. They've all gotten broken/bent.
                              I am deranged, but so, so playful!
