A friend of mine broke his jaw riding one of these the wrong way (belly-down)... The things were basically death traps.

What was the name of the make up that attached to your bracelets, had eyeshadows and lip glosses in a triangular shape that clicked onto the bracelet?

Tiffany: I'm trying to remember the same thing...I had one too...it was triangular yellow plastic w/ a sticker design in the triangle...and mine had a matte lilac eyeshadow inside. I think I remember them being called something like "jazz" or "razz" something or other...

I have been looking like crazy for one of these, they are still available, $85 plus $15 shipping fee. So for $100 you can have one, but I am seriously thinking about getting one.

I saved up my own money to buy this. Sent away for it from a TV ad. I still own it!

Cool toy. I remember them from Six Flags. As an adult, I was able to duplicate the same enjoyment out of a handled pallet jack (wearing safety gear of course).
