Description
Two big, hard, colored balls that were attached by strings so you could knock them together. They were pretty painful when you missed and hit yourself.

I had these and boy did they hurt. the new versions are much lighter so I dont think they break bones... in australia though they were often called clackers (due to the noise.)

Didn't they stop making these after a couple of them shattered and caused injuries?

my friend had a pair, i thought they were called cabangers.....my wrist would be blue and i'd still play with the damn things, i've also been looking to get a pair (old school one's ) for a few years, no one has them... someone needs to bring these back, but of course now there will have to be a warning so some greedy parent doesnt sue the company for their kids having broken wrists lol.

they had them on an episode of Drake & Josh and called them "knockers".. Some people have commented that they can be found at the Dollar Store and Walmart, but I haven't found them online yet. Anyone find some yet?

Yep...that's what we called them in Brooklyn, NY....CABANGERS. and they were bangers all right. I LOVED playing with these things. See we all knew that they left your wrist black and blue but that was the beauty of it. You didn't get hurt if you played with skill. (lol) I agree with christina...we will never see the old school pair again due to possible injury to a child. That's fair. I sure would like a pair for myself tho' (smile)

I still have mine, they are green with a ring to go on your finger instead of that thing in the picture. They outlawed/banned them after they came out and thing they said something about being a deadly weapon. My brother's were taken away by our parents. You could get them going then start moving your arm in a circular motion above your head and guess he threw them probably. lol (his were purple)
