Toy Clackers, also known as Klik-Klaks, were popular in the 1970s and are still a favorite among many vintage toy collectors today. The toy consists of two plastic balls connected by a string. When the balls are swung back and forth, they make a loud "clacking" sound.

The toy was invented in 1969 by a toy company called Wham-O. The company was also responsible for other popular toys such as the Hula Hoop, Frisbee, and Superball. Toy Clackers were so popular that the company sold over 10 million of them in the first year.

The toy was eventually banned in many places due to safety concerns. It was reported that some of the plastic balls shattered, causing pieces to fly off and injure children. The company eventually created a new version of the toy made from a safer material, but it was never as popular as the original.

Today, Toy Clackers remain a popular item among collectors and those who remember playing with them when they were young. The vintage toy is a reminder of simpler times, and it still brings joy to those who are lucky enough to have a pair.
