The Marvelous Thing That Came from a Spring: The Accidental Invention of the Toy That Swept the Nation

by Gilbert Ford
Imagine discovering one of the most iconic toys in American history. That is what Richard James and his wife did while trying to solve a problem as a navy engineer trying to figure out how to keep ships from vibrating. The slinky has been “walking” ever since and the author tells the story in a fun and whimsical way. Author’s Note, Bibliography (JCL)
