    Clacker balls....(??)
    I am sure somebody here knows what I am referring to.
    I had them when I was a child, one of the few "toys' I did have....they were 2 'balls', each attached to strings, and the strings connected at the top.
    You held the string with your hand and let the balls (clackers) sort of bump into one another, and they clacked.....maybe a cracker sound??
    The balls were made of some hard material, not glass of course, and they were the size of a golf ball, close to it.
    I tried looking on eBay, and no luck...but I am certain they are called Clackers.
    I know I'm not crazy, they are out there somewhere ~LoL~
    Anyway, anyone know where I can possibly find a set??...I would like to have a set again.
    I appreciate any help....thanks :)

    They can shatter, often times resulting in personal injury.

    Yeah I was wondering too.
    I never heard that till just now. The company that has them, has many to sell, brand new in bag, they are the vintage 1970 toy.
    They can hurt if you get konked in the head.
