          I bought it as a Christmas gift for my grandson. I remember how I used to send it down the stairs and how much fun it was. I was disappointed--and so was my grandson.

                Gave this slinky to our youngest (three years old) Grandchild and he carried it around with him until we had to leave and only then could we put it back in its original box so his parents could take it home!!.

                          Comments about Collector's Edition Slinky:

                          Was heavier/tighter than I remember from when I had a different one a while ago. This one doesn't go down stairs as well, i.e. it's not as flexible as it should be. It's also not as long as it needs to be, this one is much shorter than the older ones, and that might have contributed to the overall problem. The ones I've seen/had in the past were much lighter and expanded much easier. They also seemed to have a larger radius. This one didn't meet any of my expectations.

                              My Kids are older and they thought getting those slinkies was the coolest thing for Christmas. I was really happy to have found them.
