Even more strange than this commercial is that, about an hour before you posted this, someone came into the store where I work singing this jingle. Small world.

I'm only 28 and even still, I had a Slinky. But then again I am a nostalgia fiend.

You're not old. I was just playing with a slinky in Cracker Barrel last week. We had crappy plastic ones when we were kids. The original ones are really heavy.

I'm 52, and I definitely remember that commercial and still sing the song. And I still own Slinkies.

I'm 56, and oh yes, I could have sung the whole song without playing the clip. ^_^

I'm 18, and I remember one of my friends as a kid had a slinky. I was insanely envious of it too. Would love to get one of the nice, metal slinkys. Always ended up getting the cheap plastic ones. I had one I was really fond of that was rainbow and had an alien on it. Took it everywhere I went.

I always appreciated that the theme song for Log from Ren & Stimpy was based on the Slinky jingle. My Slinky would always get tangled and finally became too bent to work correctly, but I kept it for many years in that same box as in the commercial.
