4 THINGS I’M 72.8% SURE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT A PAIR OF LUCITE BALLS.


1- Technically the pair was made of acrylic plastic.

2- I personally called ‘em death balls, though the world knew them as Ker-bangers or Click clacks

3- This toy of the '80s actually had a patent granted for it in 1949.

4- These were the oh so easy Ker-bangers instructions.

  2. I had several clackers through the years and they always seemed to end up the same way, with someone breaking them after I annoyed them.

  6. We called these things CLACKERS back in school, and I LOVED them, even after several friends ended up with some pretty nasty wrist injuries. They were so much fun, though. Ahhh, the memories.

  10. I never owned a pair of these, but I do remember them. Clackers, yeah, that is what we called them. Did they serve any purpose other to annoy the heck out of everyone!?

  19. yeah...lotta fun till the dipstick neighbor kid used it on the other neighbor's dog.
    Killed it as sure as a hunter (even though I know from the look on his face, it surprised him) and from that day forth, I stopped playing with toys that look like weapons.

    OK, the bow and arrow set was different.
    And I DIDN'T shoot that chipmunk!
    (He ran away when I made a noise)
