It's National Slinky Day and Frankie Too

 

It's National Slinky Day and Frankie Too

 

Slinky was so much fun in our non-techie childhoods. It could climb stairs (well, it could go down stairs--up was a different story).  And it made that classic Slinky noise.


According to our friends at Wikipedia, a Naval Mechanical Engineer named Richard James was working on stabilizer springs for the instruments aboard ships when he knocked one of them off a shelf and it stepped down several levels; then stood upright. According to Wiki, he experimented with several versions until he got one to “walk”.

 

Richard’s wife Betty named it Slinky meaning sleek and graceful. And, the rest is history.

Now you can buy Slinky in every color; and even a rainbow jumbo Slinky. Does anyone still buy them for their children or grandchildren?

It's pretty but I bet it doesn't make that classic Slinky sound; it's plastic. Did you know it is also National Frankenstein Day?

 

Frankie

 

 

 

What a hunk! We wouldn’t want to leave him out...he might come back to visit.
