The original clackers were made from glass but due to too many of them chipping and the pieces flying into peoples' eyes, they changed them to plastic.

Speaking of dangerous toys from the past, does anyone remember making these?

You definitely had to be in a "well ventilated" room to make them or otherwise:

Seriously TR, the things they let us kids play with back then. I'm surprised we survived!

My fingers went raw trying to snap these things together and pull them apart.

This taught me I would never be a programmer (but loved playing the video games)

Somehow this always ended up in my sock and would go through the wash.

forgot this one: He oozed some blue goo but came with a band aid for a quick patch.

wow, I had the little people barn and airplane-the barn would "moo" when you opened the door.

Still have my stuffed Bozo and Barry bear, though neither one talk when you pull the string anymore.

I remember mercury being passed around in class in elemntary school.

I wanted a Pogo ball. My brother got one and was pretty selfish about it. Recently DD saw one and wanted it but the owner refused to give it up.

I loved mine so much that when DD was born I bought her one off of eBay. There's something about the bells.

For tech:
I still have all of these components:

I've seen it reviewed a few times as one of the worst video games ever. As a kid I loved it. Atari: E.T.

Holly-Isis - I used to have something very similar to those "Fashion Plates". You could create customized vans with it, and it was called, "Little Van Goes":

I loved my spirograph. I got a new one every week.

I also loved my Lite Bright, PlayDoh and my Easy Bake Oven.

And Liddle Kiddles! Dolls in a bottle! My aunt gave me a couple when I had my tonsils out in 1968

@Lucky2haveme -

I had a couple of those dolls too - Rose and Lily of the Valley. I didn't even remember what the containers looked like, just that they smelled like the flower that was in their hair. They didn't lose the scent either!

@lostmylight55 -

Trash-80!!!! I didn't have one - that was what we used in the computer class I took my junior year in high school. (Senior year, for computers 2, or whatever they called it, we got moved "up" to Commodore Pets.) That's actually where I decided for sure that I was going into computer science!

The thing I remember most about the TRS-80 though... it's a miracle I decided I liked computers enough to get CS degrees. We had to write programs for the class, and after the first week or so, we were, of course, doing stuff that took longer than one class period to complete. So we had to save our work.

And what did we save it on?

Yep - a good old fashioned audio cassette recorder. There was about a 50/50 shot of actually retrieving a program that had been saved on this. I learned very quickly to make a printout of all my work before shutting down the computer. Re-typing it all in wasn't fun, but it was better than having to completely re-write it when the computer couldn't hear my saved program correctly!

Also, something my mom did with us kids was get us a craft every Christmas. Her philosophy was that the novelty of our new toys wore off well before Christmas break was over. And then she had kids around the house, being bored and driving her nuts.

So, one gift for Christmas each year for each of us was a craft. That way, she could get us busy doing our crafts when we decided we were bored.

I loved getting those. These are the ones I remember the most:

a spin art machine similar to the one posted earlier:

potholder loom:

paint-by-numbers kits:

Easy Bake Oven, of course, and the sewing equivalent of it:

I wasn't very good at this:

I was incredibly horrible at this (every pot came out looking like someone had melted Blob from Gigglesnort Hotel, for anyone from Chicago who remembers that!), and it made such a mess:

And, of course, who can forget:

(edited to find some smaller pics this time!)

^^^ I used to take the Omagles to my best friend's house. We would make cars out of them, tie each other up as tightly as we could in the cars and push each other into the pool. You weren't allowed to try to get out of the ropes until the car touched the water.

@Waiting4Daylite -

I know what you mean....

"Dusty, Dusty, Dusty, ridin' Nugget, Nugget, Nugget"

Those were probably some of my favorite toys ever! A Barbie-type doll that wasn't all girlie and that had a horse!

The one mom NEVER wanted us to have, and yet we always seemed to manage to get our hands on:

and you could pick these up whenever you had a little spare change:
