Slinky® $5.50

Everyone loves a Slinky®! This original metal spring toy is famous with kids of all ages. It stretches, snaps back, and makes a "slinkity sound." [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,, devoted to nearly every conceivable aspect of this toy.

The spring diameter is about 3" (7.6 cm).

WARNING! This toy presents a potential hazard for young children. Do not give to a child under 3 years of age.
