These were known by several names. I never owned a pair, my mother said they were too dangerous, but the girl just down the street had a set (I think they were blue or green). I tried them a few times but could never get the right rhythm going to get them to knock against each other as fast as she could. The balls were made of glass I believe and I am sure she got a few bruises from them.

Oh my goodness.... I forgot all about clackers. Man did I have fun with those, however, my fun was at the expense of my younger sisters. As I got those things clacking I would get as close to them as possible, illiciting fear and annoyance. Good memories.

I think I had dark pink ones. And yes, I got injured on a fairly regular basis! :)
