359 - Slinky, Slinky

From 365 Project
A spring, a spring, a marvelous thing! Everyone knows it's Slinky. The famous toy made an appearance at our Christmas dinner table, as holiday napkin rings. Every time I looked someone was playing with one. Why not -
It's Slinky, it's Slinky. For fun it's a wonderful toy.
It's Slinky, it's Slinky. It's fun for a girl or a boy.

Over 300 million have been sold and the jingle is the longest running in advertising history. Yes I know, the song is now running through your head over and over - happy, happy, joy, joy. Canon 7D, 1/320 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 1600, 50mm macro.
