      Slinky - metal, of course. Walking them down the stairs was always the most fun thing to do with them.

      Slinky or "Lazy Spring" - The toy was invented and developed by naval engineer Richard James in the early 1940s and demonstrated at Gimbels department store in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in November 1945. The toy was a hit, selling its entire inventory of 400 units in ninety minutes.

      Slinky! Got one for Christmas and it worked. It was however great at tangling and cutting fingers with metal.
