Classic Commercial Jingles 50's 60's - YouTube A 10-minute trip back in time!! Can't believe how many of these jingles I knew the words to!
The Slinky was invented in 1943 by Richard James and first sold by Gimbal's Department stores in 1945. In 1960 Richard James gave all his money to a religious cult and moved to Bolivia. In 1962 his wife Betty James, reorganized the company, began an advertising campaign and gave us the Slinky we know today.
This is a huge classic game from the past! I guess every kid had one! I had one in my time, back in the 70s........ It was a fun game, where you would throw the sticks on the floor or table and then players would take turns in removing one stick at a time without moving the other sticks! If you failed you would loose! The winner was the last player standing! Fun, fun, fun!!!
