I've Broke My Slinky

I've gone and twisted my slinky in two places and can't figure out how to get it back in to shape without snapping it! Any ideas on how to fix a slinky?

For reference it's made of plastic, red and around 4 inches in height although it can get pretty big when you pull it!

Pictures available upon request.

Thanks.

Ein Schlinky  Wink

My kids have them and get tangled all the time. I've untwisted many over the last few years and would have expected Myt332 to have enough brain power to sort it out on his own but perhaps he would be better off to go to the local toy shop, splurge and buy a new one.  Wink

Why is a Slinkey like a politician?

Because they both bring a smile to your face when you see them pushed down the stairs!

Who walks the stair without a care
It shoots so high in the sky.
Bounce up and down just like a clown.
Everyone knows its Slinky.

The best present yet to give or get
The kids will all want to try.
The hit of the day when you're ready to play
Everyone knows it's Slinky.

It's Slinky, It’s Slinky
for fun it's the best of the toys
It's Slinky, It’s Slinky
the favorite of girls and boys

Ooooh, once your Slinky's twisted you stand a snowball's chance in hell of ever getting it to entertain your friends and family as it glides effortlessly down the stairs again. Say your goodbyes, bury it in the garden and move on.  cry

Unfortunately, once it is bent, the slinky is done for.
