We have a lot of the Toy Story toys and our little boy had Slinky on his wishlist for a while now. I was a little cautious in ordering it due to several negative reviews but he wanted it so much that I couldn't deny him and made a choice in the end.

I see many people complaining about the short pull string and the fact that he doesn't stand up easily. Granted these 2 facts may vary from the animated movie but... it is an animated movie after all.

The pull string is short but I don't think it would be ideal to have a long string, it would get in the way and a really long string would definitely tangle in the slinky causing other issues. My son sits low and pulls him along just fine and even if he falls it doesn't really seem to phase him, kids find a way to continue with their play.

As for the standing up issue, again yes, this is an issue but... the dogs body is a slinky! This can't be compared to any other toy that sits up straight. Again, my son found the trick to this himself and it as simple as pulling the slinky apart 1-2 inches when propping him and he stands just fine.

Don't let the negative reviews fool you, it is a great toy and children that love the movie won't care in the slightest about these little things that us picky adults worry about too much sometimes..

I was worried that this product, when given to my young nephew, would follow the fate of all the slinkys I had as a kid - tangled and bent out of shape. Fortunately this toy comes with an internal string which keeps the slinky from stretching too far. An excellent addition to help prolong the life of the toy. My nephew was thrilled to add it to his Toy Story collection and I'm considering getting one for myself...

A gift for my grandson ~ he loves it and plays with on a regular basis. Just got to be careful he doesn't pull it too much as it can then "fly" a little!!
