    Not what I expected

        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.

              Bought this product, one for each of three grandchild. Of course the older one has had more luck getting it to work correctly, but the problem for the other two is the age of the kid much more so than the quality of the slinky. It's a good one, the kind of product you would expect from Duluth Trading Post.

                  Comments about Collector's Edition Slinky:

                  This unit is half the diameter of the original and 12 less rings. Will not work on real stairs. Unfortunately it's the same model being sold by other retailers. My Grandson will not be excited.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Great service, prompt delivery.

                    Amazing how much fun kids can have with a spring.
                    Gets the kids out of the house and away from the electronics.
                    Just like I did 50 years ago.

                          Even at 70 still enjoying instructing how to use it. Don't pull it and bend it.
                          I did at 6 years old and got a new one by collecting soda bottles for the
                          deposit. Gave it away when 15 now buying them at 70 to see the joy on
                          kids faces.
