The Slinky is a pre-compressed spiral spring toy invented by Richard James in the early 1940s. With the Slinky, you can perform many tricks: including travelling down the stairs from end to end as it stretches and reshapes with the help of gravity and its swing, giving the impression of hovering for a while after being dropped. These interesting features contributed to its success as a toy in the US, resulting in many popular toys in various rainbow colours and sequins in various countries. In his work, by using a slinky colourful spring in rainbow colours and a circular connection, the volume was obtained and by hanging the springs on the sleeve, the dynamics were obtained, thus gaining the role of mobile. Colourful springs attached to the blazer give 3D volume and enter the space and give the effect of bright colours and their elasticity and mobility as they move.
