I busted my lip one time with CLick Clacks! They came with a plastic wrist protector but for some reason all the kids I knew got carried away and clacked all up the face with these.. One word Awesome.

I remember Click clacks. I had a pair (I LOVED THEM) and they weren't made of hard plastic with a safe plastic handle and we didn't have safety gloves either. They were made of glass balls and flimsy string. You had to be a Ninja master to use them to not kill yourself or anyone near you. They were dangerous, I think that's what added to the fun, I had so many bruises on my hands, knuckles and wrists. Ah, the good old days.

As a kid, I once had a pair of Click-Clacks. It was one of my favorite toys. Looking back now, they were dangerous which is why they stopped making them. But sometimes, I wish I still had a pair.

I had a pair when I was about 15. I remember walking down the highschool hall way clacking away and gosh did they make some racket LOL. I had to throw them away because they had a huge crack in them LOL ... neat toy. My DD was watching Drake & Josh and they were playing with a pair LOL. Oh well.....

We had a bet,i bet this kid that i could throw the click clak like a bolo weapon,we were at the pizza store,i was spinning them around above my head and let go,it flew and landed in the pot of marinara sauce in the pizzaria.Frank the owner was so mad ,he made us fold up pizza boxes the whole summer and didnt pay us.

I still have my click clacks. They are purple classic ones on flimsy string. They weren't really made out of glass, they were made out of acrylic. Last time I tried I could still click and clack. They have to be at least 39 years old.

Correction. I was thinking I was 10 when I got mine, but I wasn't. I must have been 11 if they came out in 1970. So mine are only 38 years old. LOL!

love those click clacks i always try to describe this toy to my children, they were awesome i lived in new york, in the 70s lol. they were a dangerous toy, i always had bruises on my arms and they could knock you out unconcoius but they were a lot of fun, the noise was very exciting and the colors were mesmericing i wish they were available now, the problem is that with this violent society, they would be a weapon. lol

Hello everyone, I had about 4 pairs of the click clacks. I had a pair of green, orange, red, and a glitter purple pair if I can remember. Well yes I used to put a towel around my arm and click away I had burised on my arm from this toy i used to turn my head away close my eyes and click away. I remember my mom would say stop that clicking thank you to the person who mentioned the vermont store I'm goin to purchase a pair. The cite bought back a lot of memories of old toys.

I had a pair of orange-gold glitter pair, and I also loved them. I know Moma still has them somewhere, as she never throws anything away. I am a 60 model (born 1960, ha!), so if I could find em they'd be really old! For anyone who has their originals, I bet they'd sell for big bucks on E-Bay. Has anyone seen what the old, silver Christmas trees were selling for. . . . Ya know those that had the colored light that sat on the floor and turned back and forth!? ha! How I long for those good ole days! Sheila from OK

Click clacks we soooo cool. I loved the sound and even tolerated getting bruises on my wrists just to hear that sound.
arty909 - July 05, 2008 - Report this comment
The glass versions were pulled off the market not because of bruises or stiches to the user; but mostly because they had a tendency to chip, and the glass slivers caused injury or blindness to countless victims. It happened to a girl on my street in the very early 70's...

I have a great memory of Kabangers (that's what we used to call them in NJ)! My family was on the boardwalk in Asbury Park and there was a stand where you could win them - the really nice colorful glass ones. My sis and I begged my Dad to win us some. Well, we tried but we couldn't win. I will never forget walking away from the stand hearing the clacking all the way down the boardwalk. We were so sad! So we ended up getting them at another time - they weren't the glass ones - mine were Neon Pink & Neon Yellow. Man, the bruises I had on my arm. I can still feel the pain of that ball hitting the side of my wrist bone!! I would play until I couldn't take the pain anymore until I got smart and used my roller skating knee pads as a wrist guard. Then there was no stopping me...well until my parents couldn't stand the noise anymore! I want a glass pair!!!
Barb - July 10, 2008 - Report this comment
www.timewarptoys.com has the original glass ones, 38.00 ea. or 30.00 ea for 3 or more. The ones from Vermont Store are unbreakable and work the same. Had em when I was a kid, and have just as much fun with them now!

I still have mine and they are still awesome. I came across a site selling the originals for 50 bucks a pair. They claim to have a black pair for sale for 125.00. I still have my purple ones. I'm 40 now. Jeeeez, these things have got to be at least 32 years old. wow. . . feelin' my age over here but it's nice to be able to pull 'em out and feel the nostalgia when I hear the sound they make. I'm still good with them too. Clocked myself at over 100 hits both top and bottom. I still got it! CRAWESOME!!! (crawesome = crazy awesome) :)

I am 42 years old and I had one of the original click clacks. I wish I still had it. I could make that thing fly! I remember they came out with one that was covered in some kind of explosive powder like you find in caps from a cap gun and every time you connected they would fire like a cap gun. Ohhhh, the good old days. Wish I still had those things!!

This is really awesome I didn't realize how many people loved "Click Clacks", this was our thing in the Bronx/Mount Vernon, NY. We took them to school (got in trouble of course) but we had competitions and played non-stop or until an adult had enough of the noise. Brings back pleasent memories, I have been looking all over for a pair. Thanks for the info.

They just showed the "Clackers" on Drake and Josh and that made me go to my computer and look them up to see if they are still available for sale. I'm 39 and we even had an arm guard - it was the cheesiest thing, but it kept your arms from getting a bruise. I may order these for my 10 year old. That would be a great challenge to see if I still have it!

I was born in 1968 and remember the brothers up the street "Jimmy and Billy" gave me their Clackers. We moved from that street when I was 4, so I had to be 2 or 3! I thought they were made of wood though? Does anyone remember them being made of wood? I can't imagine my Mom letting a 3 year old having glass clackers! Ah, the good ol' days is right!

I remember the click clacks very well. In the early 70's we use to play with them and get the clicking and clacking so fast that they would explode apart. I can still remember one pair where the balls exploded and a piece hit my parents coffee table. Fortunately it was a very well made table. it put a gouge so deep that it is still in that table today. Ahhhhh yes, the good old days. Product safety, what product safety!

Glad to let you all know that they are back!! I brought them at the county fair. They aren't glass but made out of a very strong material. The string was shorter and the ring wasn’t plastic it was metal so it slips when your going at it for a long time. It's like riding a bike you never forget. My sister and I use to compete by counting the clacks. They have them in all colors pink, red, blue, yellow and I paid $8.00 for them. Good Luck in getting them.

I love my click clacks. I got really good at doing a continuous rhythm. A few times, my wrist got in-between the balls and got large lumps from the balls connecting with my wrist.

Wow, Click Clacks cool as hell. No protective plastic, no wrist protector, no nothing!!!!! Just your skill because back in the day they twere made of pure glass or marble or concrete, well who knows but those babies were killers. They would bang the hell out of your wrists and god forbid if anyone was in your way they would be hurt too!!!!! But boy u really needed skill to master them and after a few thousand bruises well they were awesome!!!!!! :))))

Ahhh, click-clacks... I grew up on the Jersey shore and I think I was in 6th grade (1972) when everybody had a pair of these...or two or three. I can also remember them being called "clackers," but never "kabangers" as Melissa from Jersey (see post above) remembers, even though I was only a few miles away in Brick. Hmmm, subject for some linguistic study there...? They were never made of glass, BTW, but colored acrylic plastic. My mom actually worked at the click-clack factory in NJ (yeah, how cool was that!) until they stopped making them because of the shattering hazard, and I can remember her bringing home click-clacks that had JUST BEEN MADE THAT DAY, with that hot molten plastic aroma still hanging on them. Ah, smell and memories, the classic combination. Anyway, it's a wonder we didn't all kill ourselves with the damned things. I had forgotten about getting cracked on the wristbone when they'd hit just a little off-center and go flying off in all kinds of directions after you got them going nearly too fast to see...ouch... no pleasant memories there!

We called them Kabangers and I still have mine that I inherited from an older cousin when I was like 3 or 4 years old. I'm almost 35 now. They're hanging on a peg on my closet door. Of course they've seen better days as they shattered a bit over the years. Boy do I remember my older cousins and siblings being banged up when playing with these.

I just bought some at a flee market (3 for $5) and are so much fun! I too, remember them as a child and was so excited when I saw a variety of colors in one of the vendors store. I bought them at DENIO'S FARMER'S MARKET in Roseville, Ca.

I bought my click clacks in the small Indiana town that I still reside in, in approximately 1973. My older brother and younger sister also got a pair. All of our friends and cousins had them! Great fun until my parents took them away because they were pulled from shelves because of "injuries". I am almost 49 years old, and my Dad just gave me all three pair that were taken from me and my siblings! My parents had put them up and kept them for us!

I loved my GLASS click clacks too. I need to go dig them out of the garage and show my son.

I still have a pair of the "glass" Clackers that I bought in 1972. One ball is blue, the other is green. I still can get them going really fast, and still get bruised when I play with them. Still fun though.

I had click clacks in the early to mid 1970's here in australia. They were opaque coloured resin: yellow snd green, or perhaps pale blue in colour. I ended up with a massive lump on my forearm, and the click clacks were taken away. They either recalled them here, or news got out about the dangers of these incredible toys. They were so loud!

Are you interested in buying coin operated horses or spring rocking horses??? They are sold on Ebay. Most spring horses are made by Blazon, Wonder, Flexible Flyer, and Radio Flyer. Feel free to buy as many as you like. Good luck!!! :) Ebay account required.
