It's a classic! Great idea!

Love your different take on the word 'spring'!

Slinkies are great! When you play with them, you HAVE to sing the song!

Perfect! The 70s called—they want their toy back... thanks for the ride!

And did you know: the company started with $500 and each one is made from 80 feet of wire and over a quarter billion Slinkys have been sold worldwide.

Ha ha nice one - very original. That idea would have never even occured to me! I had a slinky as a girl - all you needed was a staircase, for hours of endless fun! Great little drawing :)

Ear worm song!
I played with slinkies a lot! Up and down the stairs over and over. Toys were simpler back in those days, weren't they?
