K-nockers, 1971

K-nockers. 1971

Another clip from the HTV West collection and this time it’s K-nockers or Clackers as they were called in Wales. The craze swept the schoolyards in the early seventies. Perceived as dangerous many schools banned children taking the toy into school; the toy remains on the banned list of toys to this day.
