History of the Slinky
The year 1943, smack dab in the middle of World War II, Richard James was developing a spring system to keep fluctuating shipboard instruments sturdy while at sea. Amused when he dropped a spring to the ground, and it began to walk - Richard brought the spring home to his wife, Betty. Betty had a vision for the toy, found a name in the dictionary, "slinky" meaning stealthy, sleek, and sinuous. History was made as Slinky debuted at Gimbel's Department Store in Philadelphia in 1945. Initially, there was skepticism about whether Slinkys would sell, but all 400 at Gimbel's that day were purchased in 90 minutes. Since then, over three hundred million Slinkys have been sold worldwide. Join the crowd of generations of Slinky lovers!
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 5 years of age.
My son was excited to get this in his Easter basket. He went to the stairs right away to try it out. It worked the first time down the stairs, which hasn't happened with other Slinkys we've had in the past. It didn't work as well the 2nd or 3rd time down, but he continued to play with it and seemed pleased with it.
