Found 24th Jun 2017
Went toy shopping with my kids and bought these for me, ahem my kids to play with as they seemed quite fun and could possibly distract them for a few mins.

Annoyingly fun!

Also seen them at Smyths for £8.26 each or 2 for £15.

just watched the video on argos and this is the same toy from some years ago that was banned. it was a toy that had a hard ball on each end that when you swing the rope up and down the balls would hit each other and make a clacking noise but the balls after a time would explode and shatter into small bits and fly everywhere. this version looks to be the same apart from the rubber balls

How many times can you SMACK'EM!

Hold on to the soft handle, move your wrists up and down, and bang the balls together! It's more challenging than it sounds and it's so much fun!
1. Start with a half smack
2. Lift handle ""up"", keep ropes tight and straight and then .... do the full SMACK!
Try these challenging tricks: Smack Around the World! - rotate in one direction Handle Flip Flop - without stopping slowly rotate the handle Discount Double Smack - use two sets of Smackerz at the same time!
How long will it take you to master them all?

I'm working on my new invention, a round thingy I'm calling a wheel. There might be a market for them somewhere.
