Q & As

Original Slinky 4.3 5 6 6
Great fun This is a good old fashioned toy. Great fun for the family. 02 September 2014
Review of Original Slinky This so called Original Slinky is about half the diameter of the one that I had as a child. It is consequently a disaster as the bearing area is so small it falls over sideways after a couple of moves down the stairs. i.e. it is unstable as it moves. Cheeseparing on the spec presumably to reduce the cost has not worked. Was it well tested before offering it for sale ? What a pity ! I would have paid more to have one that worked properly ! 14 January 2014

Fun object I purchased two of these slinks for my grandsons aged 5 and 4 for Christmas. They had never seen them before but because I had purchased one many years ago for their father who thoroughly enjoyed the slinky I thought I could not go wrong. I was right they loved it and have had many hours of fun. 27 January 2012
