Here's another one of our favorite toys from way back when, and we are happy to say they are still MADE IN AMERICA. The Slinky is still made in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania with the original equipment Richard James created.
The Slinky has changed little in over 50 years. A crimp was added to the ends of the wire to ensure safe play.
Though it was developed to be a toy, other applications for the Slinky have been discovered. The Slinky has been used as an antenna by soldiers in Vietnam, as a therapy tool and for coordination development. The possibilities are endless.
