Slinky. Brings back memories! Great photo!

Thanks, Cardinal! Today’s Slinkys come in such great colors. Mine was a plain metal-colored one! It was the coolest thing I ever had at the time. I must have walked that thing up down the stairs a zillion times. And everywhere else I could think of!

I also had the plain metal one. It was the only model on the market those days.

Thank you very much, Natuurfreak! And thank you for dropping by to visit!

That is, by far, one of the most beautiful slinkies I’ve ever seen! You are amazing!

Hi, Lorna! I’m delighted to see you!
Thank you. Today’s Slinkys have such bright, futuristic colors. That makes them even more fun to play with than my old plain metal one! Somehow, I think it might have been primary red? I have to ask my sister, the keeper of the record. Thanks for stopping by. See you soon! (I swear…)

Hey, lady, how are you doing? I’m still coming up for air after all of my daughter’s graduation activities. I couldn’t let another day go by without checking in with you and Gail! I’ve missed you both! My slinky never looked as good as yours, great shot, George!
June 2, 2013 at 9:17 pm
Thanks, Elisa. I am glad to see you! I’ve been thinking about you and intending every day to check on you. I know you are happy to have the graduation done. Thanks for stopping by!

This is an interesting image.

Thank you, Colline. Slinkys are fun!
My daughters would agree with you!

Another slinky ….how funny. I saw one on another post 2 weeks ago and said…..wow….that takes me back !!

Thank you, Carissa. Slinkys are fun to play with and to photograph!

How awesome! I can hear the sound a slinky makes when I look at this image
May 28, 2013 at 10:13 am
You know, I had forgotten the sound until you mentioned it. Now, I have to play with the Slinky again. I am deaf now so I didn’t hear it the other day when I was playing with it. It’s like when Che makes his chirping noises and I don’t hear them. I read that he would make the noises, and I was worried that he was not happy since I could never hear him talking. Finally, not too long ago, I heard this odd sound and discovered that he was talking! Thanks for reminding me.

Wonderful shot, George! A nice slice of retro-futurism! Many happy hours spent sending one of these down the stairs.
May 28, 2013 at 8:38 am
Thank you, Richard. I think the Slinky must be the universal children’s toy. I do like the futuristic colors now. Mine were plain metal, but they fueled my imagination nonetheless. I like the term “retro-futurism”!
May 28, 2013 at 8:00 pm
A slinkey, A slinkey…it’s a fun and wonderful toy! A slinkey, A slinkey….it’s fun for a girl and a boy! (…or something like that!) I definitely remember Slinkeys! Did you ever try to straighten yours out and then try to fix it, by “coiling” it back up? It would never go back to its original shape, so I would tie my little brother up with it!
May 28, 2013 at 6:26 am
Haha! I vaguely remember trying to put the Slinky back together again. How I wish I’d thought of using it to tie up my little brother! If he were still alive, I would tell him about missed opportunities. Thank goodness, you were not around when I was a kid. I got into enough trouble on my own! Thanks for the visit, WH.

What a neat photograph! I couldn’t imagine how you did it until I read your reply to Victor’s comment.
May 28, 2013 at 6:10 am
Thanks, Linda. I had fun with the Slinky!
May 28, 2013 at 8:01 pm
Hey George … nice picture. Like many who have already commented, I too remember the Slinky. The classic toys endure … don’t they. D
May 28, 2013 at 5:35 am
Hi Farmer! I was delighted the first time I saw the neon-colored Slinky. I think it is universally appealing to children still. I had hours of fun with my plain-Jane metal-colored one. This one would have fascinated me even more, I’m sure. Thanks for dropping by.
May 28, 2013 at 8:04 pm
Beautiful photo! One of my favorite toys! i could play with a slinky for hours and hours when i was a kid… the metal ones, not the plastic. They felt so cool and smooth and alive… i need a new slinky. yes. i very much need a new slinky!
May 28, 2013 at 5:11 am
I remember playing with them too. A simple magic that inspired us to imagine all kinds of living creatures as the Slinky walked for us! We tried to get it to walk up or down all kinds of impossible terrain. It still makes me smile to watch it. The slinky must still be a universal toy. This one is metal too. Yes, you need a new slinky! We all need a new slinky!

Thank you, Debra. I enjoyed playing with this colorful Slinky. My childhood ones were a plain silver color. There is something magical about the effect of the neon colors when the Slinky walks.
May 28, 2013 at 2:46 pm
Wonderful shot, George, I like it very much! Adrian
May 28, 2013 at 12:24 am
Thank you, Adrian. Today’s Slinkys are so colorful. Mine were plain. Both are magical, but I like the futuristic neon-colored ones!
May 28, 2013 at 2:44 pm
That’s no slinky, that’s a ridged animal, creeping, bounding, leaping … Fantastic shot George!
May 27, 2013 at 11:14 pm
KInd of does look like a creature! Slinkys move a little like creatures now that you mention it. I just visited your pathways. A wonderful concept. There is magic everywhere if we look if we look. Thank you for stopping by, Meredith!

Outstanding! A reflection of a slinky?
May 27, 2013 at 9:03 pm
Yes. I saw it lying in the garage where one of the kids dropped it and thought about snapping it in my “magic porch light”. The tabletop glass is very dark so it reflects the image when the late afternoon sun is at the right angle. I photograph lots of stuff on the table. My Slinkeys were plain silver colored. I would have loved today’s neon colors! It’s great to hear from you, Victor. I hope everything is good in KSA. I saw the fishes and chuckled as I thought of your description of bobbing like a cork in the ocean! Thanks for stopping by.
May 27, 2013 at 9:43 pm
Interesting photo… with the metallic colours and glass shine… beautiful…
May 27, 2013 at 8:25 pm
Thank you, Rob. I wish my Slinkeys had been such glorious neon colors. However, I’ll trade Slinkey colors for those you see and photograph every day. They are wonderful. I am astounded by your ability to capture them in the wild! I hope your new venture is going well. Thanks for stopping by!
May 27, 2013 at 9:45 pm
So beautiful! So complex and compelling.
May 27, 2013 at 8:23 pm
Thank you, Naomi! Who knew Slinkeys would come in such colors one day? The kids dropped it in my garage so I snapped it on the porch table where I photograph lots of stuff when the sunlight streams in at the right angle. I had fun playing with it too.
