10 toys that will take you back to childhood

  • Stairs Not Included

    Long before Playstations and iPods, there was Slinky. Naval engineer Richard James originally invented the toy in the early '40s as a device for ships, but when he saw it's potential to move around and keep its shape he realized he was on to something big. He demonstrated his new invention in stores around Philadelphia. More than 300 million Slinkys — which incidentally is the official toy of Pennsylvania — have been sold worldwide, making it one of the most enduring toys of the 20th Century. — Photo by James Worrell
