Hanging from the ceiling are 200 colorful plastic Slinkys falling like rainbows from the sky. Many of them glow in the dark with the help of a black light and movement in the room causes the glowing spirals to bounce in gentle animation.
Around the perimeter of the room are display cases filled with Slinkys in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials. Some are metal, others are plastic. Suazo has vintage animal Slinkys, ornately painted Slinkys, metallic colored Slinkys and heart-shaped Slinkys. Several of the iconic toys line shelves in a window creating a colorful curtain.
