My sister and I grew up calling this toy, “Click-Clacks.” They would “click” as you knocked them together; two pendulums meeting in the middle, with a loud “click.” Then, if you swung them just right, with enough force, they would swing up and “clack” as they connected at the top.
“Click. Click. Click. Click-Clack!”
If you were really good at it, you could make them “click-clack” numerous times.
I can get one good “click-clack,” but that’s about it. My youngest, on the other hand, can make them bang back and forth multiple times. Loudly. And constantly. He’s very good at it.
Too good, honestly.
A lady at the State Fair of Texas stopped me and recalled her own fond childhood memories of the toy. She called them, “Ka-Nockers.”
It doesn’t matter what you call them. “Click-Clacks” or “Ka-Nockers…” either way, they’re F-U-N!
