Looove this one! I laughed out loud at it hooked on his ear.

Stop it! As soon as I saw the slinky I couldn’t wait to see the video. The Slinky on Willy B’s head and the laughing expression on his face had me in stitches. Willy B has some serious moves! Thanks J.B., this totally made my day. Have a great weekend everyone.

I wonder what he’d make of a hula hoop?

I Already commented on YouTube, JB, but I love the way you caught the 1st part at an angle that makes it look like you’re watching an athlete “suit up”. Then, when he gets going to see it hanging off his ear with a huge play face–why that’s just absolutely new and precious!

Linda C, I was thinking almost the same thing. Looks like a track/swim competition or olympic event — “Gentlemen, line up. In lane 1 we have Willy B from Cle Elum, WA warming up to preform his famous Slinky-Sling ending with a Double-Ear & Brow Playface Shake. Silence please ……”
I give Willy B a 10!

Yes, Kathleen, a perfect score! The record to beat! 😀

When it gets warmer will the 3 new chimps get to go on the hill too?

Hi Amy – They have had many chances but they are still working on getting comfortable with grass/dirt, wide open space, and the electric fence. Right now we have snow on the ground so they understandably don’t care to venture too far out in it but once the snow melts the door will be open for them.

Every time I watch any of the 3 chimps from WW I am so happy you took them in. Their life has improved 100%….so many more toys, activities, and better living quarters and lots of love! Thank you so much!!

What surprises me the most is why these slinky’s don’t get bent. They never seem to break, unlike the ones my sister and I used to watch walk down the stairs. Maybe it’s the new and improved plastic. Whatever it is Willy B is enthralled. Also, Willy has very nice feet! Lol

I’ve wondered the same thing….unless, of course, they DO break, but we just never see it, because of the never-ending supply!
Well, we are getting our tiny taste of winter on the island here tonight. Snow for the next 4 hours, only about 3″, then it will switch to freezing rain. Tomorrow, the sun will come out, the temperatures will be in the forties again, and it will all go away! Can’t complain about the weather here!

We do have to untangle the slinkys from time to time but incredibly they do not break!
