Between getting tangled all the time and the number of times I fell down the stairs playing with one, I am convinced Slinkys are the toy of the devil...

Oh god, I still don`t understand how they could tangle themselves like that. It always looked like someone did it on purpose.

Tangled Plastic Slinky would be a good name for a band.
"We`re Tangled Plastic Slinky . . . goodnight, Tokyo!"

The store my wife works at sells both the plastic and the metal Slinkys. Needless to say, my Daughter has both.

@KtySpix, unfortunately they stretched this one out. It will never go back to it`s fully contracted position.

I was good at untangling them too, but once it`s stretched, it`s done.

Jug of boiling water P
op the slinky in
Use tongs or heat resistant gloves to tease it back into shape (easier than it sounds as it would always revent to its original shape)
Once its back in shape, leave to cool or let jug overflow with cold water to re-harden the slinky.
Result - SLINKY

Slinky game no. 1: Hold each end, bend in a U and go shish-shish-shish from one hand to the other.
Slinky game no. 2: Push it downstairs.
Slinky game no. 3: Stretch it out of shape and throw it out.
This concludes the list of games you can play with a Slinky®.

Oh metal slinkies how I miss them. I almost took my brother`s eye right from his face with one of those bad boys.

Forget slinkys, What rolls down stairs, alone or in pairs, rolls over your neighbors dog. What`s great for a snack or fits on your back. It`s Log, Log, Log! It`s Log, Log, it`s big, it`s heavy, it`s wood.
It`s Log, Log, it`s better than bad, it`s good!
It`s sad that kids today won`t get that joke.

I love how the age range for everyone posting about metal slinkies is 30+...

And yes, real slinkies were metal, and usable as a weapon in a pinch.

Been there, but the plastic ones were crap from day one. You could break one of those in about 5 minutes. The metal ones were the only ones that mattered. But once any of them get messed up, you`re screwed.
