Slinkys go postal
After 51 years of production, enough Slinkys have been made that the 3 million miles of wire produced could circle the earth 126 times! The US Postal Service is now paying homage to this venerable walking toy. As part of its "Celebrate the Century" series the USPS will issue the "Slinky Craze Begins" stamp on Feb. 18.
