It’s Slinky, It’s Slinky

Ryan got his first Slinky for Easter.  He wasn’t that thrilled with it, but the other day, I needed something to keep him occupied for a few minutes, and tried to get him interested in the slinky again, to no avail.

Cole, on the other hand, came right over to it and was very interested.  I don’t know where or how my brain remembered the Slinky song from the commercial when I was a little girl, but I just started singing it, without missing a word, like I had heard the song yesterday.  How’s that for a good advertising jingle?

Ryan laughed, and LOVED the song.  All of a sudden he wanted to play with Slinky, and now he had to wait until Cole was done.  As soon as Cole was finished playing with it, Ryan went over and picked it up, and insisted that I keep singing the Slinky song.  So I obliged, and now he loves the Slinky, and sings the song too, while he is playing with it. 

I swear, I haven’t heard the song since I was probably about 10, but tonight I looked it up on good old You Tube, and found the Slinky commercial and the song that I remember from the 70’s.  It was pretty funny to see it again after all these years.  Check it out if you have a minute.

It is pretty amazing the things that get stored away in your brain.  Sadly for me, it isn’t some deep thought, or mathamatical equation- It’s Slinky, It’s Slinky.   



  1. That’s hilarious 🙂 I guess these jingles work!

  2. lol, I’m 55 and remember that slinky song too (however, not all the words). I buy my grandchildren them for Christmas every year and sing the song to them too

  3. Thanks for the comment, Karen. Slinky’s are fun, aren’t they?! 🙂
