National Slinky Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: August 30, 2017 is National Slinky Day.

Slinky Day

The standard Slinky was invented within the 1940′s by Navy engineer and inventor, Richard James. It demonstrated an instantaneous hit, and selling out in a couple of hrs, rapidly grew to become our favourite toys. Slinky Day remembers the standard Slinky, and really should be spent doing slinky methods, watching Slinkies race lower stairs, or just untangling the items because they inevitably knot, twist and spiral!
