The Slinky debuted at Gimbel's Department Store in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1945. Both Betty and Richard were skeptical about how the Slinky would sell. All their doubts were put to rest when all 400 Slinkys for sale were purchased in 90 minutes. Since then, over three hundred million Slinkys have been sold worldwide.
The Slinky is still made in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania with the original equipment Richard James created. The Slinky has changed little in over 60 years. A crimp was added to the ends of the wire to ensure safe play.
Though it was developed to be a toy, other applications for the Slinky have been discovered. The Slinky has been used as an antenna by soldiers in Vietnam, as a therapy tool and for coordination development. The possibilities are endless.
The Slinky has even made it to the silver screen. Slinky's appearances include: Ace Ventura- When Nature Calls; Demolition Man; Other People's Money; and Hairspray. In Disney's digitally-animated feature Toy Story, the Slinky Dog played an important role.
The Slinky (under House Bill No.1893 - Session 2001, of the General Assembly of Pennsylvania) has been named the Official State Toy of Pennsylvania as of November 4, 2001.

We bought this as a Christmas gift for our daughter. She was wanting a Toy Story Slinky Dog but I could not find anything in the stores. I came to Wayfair and when I saw this I was so excited! She absolutely LOVES it. And the best thing? It doesn't get all tangled up! I was a little worried that it would get all twisted up from being played with but nope! The only thing I would change would be the length of the pull string, it's a bit short so it makes it a little hard to pull it around.
