Slinky

This afternoon, a little boy came round to play with my son.  Although kids are, in general, fairly screen obsessed, I try to discourage this when we have people round (although realistically they would be perfectly happy taking turns on Temple Run the iPad).  So today, the kids had fun playing with the Slinky.

Slinky!

This is a deceptively simple toy – great on stairs and you can make staircases out of boxes for it to go on (this is what we did today).  I bought this one from the Science Museum – it is plastic so it doesn’t get bent out of shape when it gets tangled up.  It does drive me crackers when it gets tangled up though.
