That's entertainment

Some find entertainment in a movie theater while others prefer the great outdoors or sporting events. If you are cheap thrifty like me and have a immature childish fun loving spirit a trip to the dollar store can provide entertainment.

What walks downstairs
Alone or in pairs
And makes a slinkety sound
A spring, a spring
A marvelous thing

Everyone knows it's Slinky 
A slinky a slinky
For fun it's a wonderful toy
A slinky a slinky
It's fun for a girl and a boy.
Not to mention middle aged bloggers.

You're singing it right now aren't you?

  1. A slinky! I had one of those! They're lots of fun, but I haven't seen any in toy shops these days.

  2. Yes, I had some of those, back then they were made of metal, not the cheapie plastic they are today. Do you remember "Willie" by Wamo!! Of how about Wishniks! Had a slew of those too!!! Have a great day, Ann.

  5. i don't know the song, but i would not be able to sing it if i did because the first two photos are fantastic and i was totally unprepared to find it was a simple slinky. photography's skill is what it took. and I to am easily entertained by anything and everything with camera in hand. you are soooo creative

  6. My kids love Slinkys. I find it bizarre that they are now made out of plastic.

  13. Very cool shots Ann...however I have to admit to having a bit of a love/hate relationship with these things. My children had them and I spent most of my time untangling them for about two years...kind of takes the fun out of it!!
