doxiphernalia: Slinky Dog revisited

So here he is - a replica of the original Slinky Dog!  First is a pic of the original toy, as produced by James Industries (inventors of the Slinky!!), followed by the re-vamped Disney version that we’ve come to know and love from the “Toy Story” movies.  Faithfully-reproduced is the loop on his chest where the ‘leash’ was originally placed.  Apparently it was later relocated to allow the head to remain upright when the toy was pulled, and the leash wash shortened to reduce the risk of injury to kids.  I think it looks a little strange with the leash coming from between his eyes, but I suppose it DOES make the toy more functional...
