Slinky, the man-spring

4 years ago

Hello luuuxers, Who does not remember this toy mythical, known worldwide as "slinky" toy is just a long spring, whose profile is flattened wire. This setting is what gives the Slinky its power to do "tricks" like going down a ladder alone. I think this was one of those toys that children Mandatory requiring parents to have one and one thing is certain, did not have light nor did any harm ... lol At first, the slinky cost only a dollar, but when spring fever got, the price shot him. The great success, certainly due to the fact that he was much more than a simple briquedo. For decades, the slinky was used as educational material for physics classes, as a radio antenna and even NASA used a slinky in their projects. It is a complex task to estimate exactly how many Slinkys have been sold since its creation, but the numbers suggest that only the first 60 years of the spring, 300 million units have been sold. If we consider the colored plastic versions made in china, which were successful in the 90s, the number may be many times larger, of course ... lol And you had this fantastic toy ever?
