They're back!!!

Just up with our four year old grandson and he's got Saturday morning kids TV on.

Toy adverts in between programmes and, low and behold, an advert for a toy called Smackerz! 

For those not of a certain age, this is the new version of Clackers from the 70s, the toy that had so many kids going to A&E with fractured wrists and which were banned in some schools!  They were often seen hanging from telephone wires, usually as some older kid had nicked them and thrown them there!  :lol:

This version seems to be made from a softer material than the originals which were so hard they could have graced the arsenal of any self respecting 70s night club bouncer!  

'By gum' what goes around comes around if one waits long enough!

Bigger softer balls, bigger handgrip, looks weak compared to the hard-core hard ball clackers, they've even started a YouTube page already with tricks, all of them so impressive I nearly woke up:wicked:

They certainly don't sound like the originals.  The good old 70s when potentially lethal toys were the norm.  Toys weren't much fun unless they could put your eye out.
