Did you know that ‘Slinky’ was an accident? Created by mechanical engineer Richard James in 1943, it was the unintended by-product of a new line of sensitive springs that would help keep fragile equipment steady on ships. After knocking one of his springs off a shelf, James watched as it "walked" down from its spot instead of falling to the ground. And the rest is history; Slinky became popular back in 1945 – in 2014, it’s still going strong.
