Two porcelean balls (in vibrant colors: red, blue, yellow, green, purple, orange or black and white) attached to a string hanging from a stick. To operate this toy, the happy little child would swing the stick in a circular motion, causing the balls to click together... resulting in a rapid beat that would drive kids wild and parents out of their minds!! Ka-bangers were quickly taken off the market because a lot of kids got lobbed in the head or knocked out their teeth while playing with them. My mom never let me have a set of ka-bangers. To this day I still want 'em, more than ever!!

I'll say. I loved those things. I never knocked out any teeth because I knew to stretch my arm out as far as I could! But I sure had A LOT of bruises on my arm! :) It was awesome.

LOVED THESE TOYS!!! I wish I knew what happened to mine. I would so buy another set. What were this kids doing that they knocked out their teeth??? Idiots, you only had to get hit in the face or arm once to know to stretch out as far as possible. Kids these days are way over-protected and are being raised a sissys. They're not learning anything for themselves...bring back the vintage toys!

I got whacked a few times on my forearm, hand, and wrist, but still liked them. My pair was bright pink and royal blue. I used to get them clacking and see how long I could keep the rhythm. Eventually I got so good at it I could go on indefinitely, much to the horror of the adults in the neighborhood.

I got my Kabangers when I was four or five. My two cousins and I would stand in a huddle banging away trying to get it to butterfly. I'm surprised we never cried when the balls slammed against our wrists. I used them so much the stick broke in half and the balls had rings from smashing together so much. Mine were light pink with a beige sticks. Good times... good times...
