Happy National Slinky Day! Celebrating Slinky’s from Alex Toys at the Toy Carnival!

Did you know that the Slinky has been around for 75 years! It started out as metal, then plastic, now all kinds of colors and even light up ones!

We were so excited to be able to join in on the fun for Slinky Day..Thanks to Alex Toys!

LJ was trying to stretch it out as far as he could! We only have a few steps on our porch, so we really couldn’t get the real feel for it! ha!

Alex Toys was SUPER nice and sent us some slinky’s when we first started YouTube (2 years ago!) and we added that footage in our new video! Check it out:

Slinky’s just seem to be the staple of toys! Or at least they seem to be the start of what toys were!

It was totally worth it! Don’t get me wrong, traveling with a 4 & 5 year old is/was rough, but we did it! They had so much fun and got SO much stuff, with more to come. There were some booths were LJ just wouldn’t step away from!

There was this one booth that the boys really enjoyed:
