OK, hear me out. Our childhoods were filled with dangerous toys and playthingsregardless of what era we grew up in, and with each passing year, it seems that toy companies and local officials are banning something, recalling something, or adding yet another safety regulation to things we always assumed were perfectly safe! These banned toys and playthings, in particular, may surprise you and bring back memories of when everything felt a little more… dangerous. It was thankfully pulled from the shelves after less than a year.
Since the early s, parents have been twitching over the latest toys causing crazes that induce mass hysteria, but potentially endanger their children. See Also 9 toys from the s that would be deemed too dangerous for today's kids. But kids born before dealt with an array of hazards that modern toymakers have mostly learned to avoid, from shattering glass balls to toxic fumes.
I also have toy pages for the 80s and 90s. Submit a picture. The following are links about Clackers you may find interesting.
B efore the rise of the silicon chip and the resulting explosion of games consoles and computer games, kids around the globe were interacting with toys that were designed to stimulate their imaginations and in some cases even burn off a few calories in the process. Well the good news is many of these toys are still manufactured today and readily available from on-line superstores such as Amazon. Hopefully this article will bring back fond memories and give you some great gift ideas for the children in your life and who knows they might actually be encouraged to turn off that console and have some good old fashioned fun.

I've changed the word "banned" to "discontinued" -- can anyone find evidence of legal banning of clackers? Also I've deleted an assertion that they were made of glass, because there is no evidence other than an anecdote. Does hard acrylic have a tendency to shatter?
Klackers comprised two acrylic balls, often brightly coloured, on a string with a small handle in the middle. It was a playground craze that swept Britain and America in the early 70s. The idea was to move the handle up and down to make the balls click together. The really skilled could make the Klackers meet at the top and bottom of a circle; it required practice.
