The slinky was invented by a guy named James at the end of WWII. The last I knew they are still made in Holidaysburg, Pa.

Do you know the origin of the "slinky"?
No cheating, by doing a google or other internet search.

What walks down stairs, alone or in pairs, and makes a slinkity sound?
A spring, a spring, a marvelous thing, everyone knows it’s Slinky!
It’s Slinky, it’s slinky, for fun it’s the best of a toy
It’s Slinky, its Slinky, it’s fun for a girl and boy
Everyone wants a Slinky; you ought to get a Slinky…..

Slinky was great until you had a friend grab the other end and pull it out of the old curly coiled phone cords. No good after that.
