I remember that some school banned them. I also remember hitting my hands and feeling a lot of pain. How many of us had bruised wrists because of them. It was great when they were right and painful when wrong.
But I also remember that once you got it, it was so much fun. These were the clackers...How is that we survived is a mystery. I also remember the click click click noise, it used to drive my parents crazy....Please SHARE if you ever played with these or if you remember them :)
