"For fun it's a wonderful toy"




It doesn't get much more simple than a Slinky. A classic "oops" toy. A plain old spring and look at all that fun. Simplicity at its best I'd say. I have a few. My kids can't play with mine; they have their own.

Hey Jules

What a wonderful memory you've brought back and such a fun illustration! I too was quite territorial about my slinky. I hated to find it all kinked and unable to "walk" down the stairs after a friend had played with it-rather destroyed it. I love too, the pants with the zippered bottom half that come off, totally cool eh?! :)

What fun! I love the images you've put on the shirt...they create such a nice pattern in contrast to the simple lines and colors of the figure.

Some people are like Slinkies - useless, but they still make you smile when you push them down the stairs
