Trivia: What 1962 jingle boasted “a wonderful toy” that’s “fun for a girl or boy”?
The correct answer is Slinky
So why is this answer correct? : The Slinky was invented in 1943, when engineer Richard Thompson James knocked over a box of spare parts and saw a spring appear to “walk” down stairs. James created the first 400 Slinky toys by hand, but the popularity soon exploded, earning him and his family a fortune. In 1962, his wife Betty James took over the company and commissioned a new TV jingle that cemented the product in the minds of children for decades.
