Summary
One day, a spring fell from the desk of Richard James, an engineer and a dreamer. Its coils took a walk and so did Richard's imagination. He knew right away that he had stumbled onto something marvelous. With the help of his wife, Betty, Richard took this ordinary spring and turned it into a plaything. But it wasn't just any old trinket it was a Slinky, and it would become one of the most popular toys in American history
