The POOF-Slinky 128 Plastic Light-Up Original Slinky continues to be a constant entertainer as it glows while walking down the stairs or comes alive in your child's hands with illuminating red and blue lights. This classic toy stretches like an accordion, bounces and walks down steps one end at a time while displaying a colorful light show and making that classic Slinky sound. The built-in LED lights are activated by an on/off push-button to give you brighter, crazier, more extreme spring action than ever before. Toy history was made when Richard James conducted an experiment with tension springs. During the experiment, one of the springs fell to the floor and began to "walk". The original Slinky debuted 1945 at Gimbals Department Store in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and all (400) original Slinkys for sale were purchased in 90-minutes. Since then, over 300-million original Slinkys have been sold worldwide. The original Slinky is filled with nostalgia and has been featured in Disney Pixar's "Toy Story" movie franchise. It's the official state toy of Pennsylvania and famous for one of the most popular jingles of all time, "It's Slinky". Though it was developed to be a toy, the Slinky was used by soldiers in Vietnam as an antenna and a therapy tool for hand eye coordination. This unique Slinky is made of durable plastic and lights up for long lasting wiggly-jiggly Slinky fun!
