Little Critter is an anthropomorphic animal character created by Mercer Mayer. According to the official website, his animal species is just a Little Critter even though he, some friends, family and others like him looked like hamster-guinea pig hybrids. Originally, his home area was going to be populated by others of his species but the author put other known species of animals like skunks, rabbits, raccoons, tigers, etc. Little Critter first appeared in the 1975 book Just for You. This book is sometimes mis-titled Just for Yu because of the childlike mistake on the front cover. Since Just For You Little Critter has been featured in over 200 books. Mercer Mayer is still releasing books, CD-Roms (including the Living Books series), toys, and more featuring Little Critter.1 Comment

Clackers are toys which were popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s. They consisted of two 2 cm, hard balls suspended on string which were swung up and down so they banged against each other, making a clacking sound. Clackers are similar in appearance to the Argentinian weapons, bolas.
They are formed out of two hard plastic balls, each about two cm in diameter, attached to a tab with a sturdy string. The player holds the tab, with the balls hanging below. Through a gentle up-and-down hand motion, the two balls swing apart and back together, making the clacking noise that give the toy its name. With practice, it is possible to make the balls swing so that they knock together above the hand as well as below.4 Comments
