Recapture the sound, the feel, the fun of your first Slinky® - but in 14-karat gold plate!
Invented in Pennsylvania in 1945, the legendary Slinky® has entertained generations of children and adults throughout the world on every continent but Antarctica. In 1999, Slinky became one of the first toys to be officially honored on a U.S. Postal Service stamp, part of the Celebrate the CenturyTM Series, 1940's Collection. [Do you remember the Slinky song?]
A Slinky® is a fascinating spring. What differentiates it from other springs is the amount of stretchiness compared to its mass -- the ratio of 'spring pull' to 'spring mass' is small compared to a common spring. Scientists refer to this as the spring constant to mass ratio, written as "k/m".
The Slinky is so loved that there is an entire web site, http://slinky.org, devoted to nearly every conceivable aspect of this toy.
The spring diameter is about 3" (7.6 cm). This Slinky® has a heavy layer of 14 kt gold electroplated onto brass. It comes in a wood presentation box.
WARNING! This toy presents a potential hazard for young children. Do not give to a child under 3 years of age.
