Fun Fact: Spring Toys Were Invented By Accident!
In 1943, mechanical engineer Richard James was working to devise springs that could keep sensitive ship equipment steady at sea. After accidentally knocking some samples off a shelf, he watched in amazement as they gracefully “walked” down instead of falling.
James borrowed $500 to manufacture a machine that coiled 80 feet of wire into a two-inch spiral. Initial sales proved sluggish but soared after Gimbels Department Store in Philadelphia allowed demonstrations for Christmas 1945.
