Gold Executive Slinky® $95.00

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,, 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.
