These were eagerly awaited in my young days as toys were very hard to find with rationing. The boys liked anything that was noisy (of course!) and my favourites were 'Bombs' which were small bomb-shaped bits of metal about 3 inches long. You unscrewed the top bit and put a 'cap' inside then screwed the top back on. You carried it up to the highest stairwell and dropped it 3 0r 4 floors down to the close where the BANG would awaken the dead - then you had to run! Another favourite was a folded piece of triangular cardboard with a brown paper insert which you flicked and it made a cracking sound like a whip. Another annoying toy for the parents to shout about!

Anyone remember any more?

Found pictures of a couple!

I remember bombs, and the thunder bang. It was given away free in the Hotspur as well as the dandy i think.

One comic i used to get was 2000AD with Judge dread.
The first edition had a plastic spinner, and the comic cost 5p.
One went in auction for 1,000 last month.
wish i had kept my collection.

This was a common freebie back in the 70`s not only given away in a lot of IPC magazines (Action, Starlord), but with a lot of junior comics from other publishers (The Beano, The Dandy). So too was its` "cousin", the 3 armed boomerang. This one looked a bit like that coat of arms on the back of Isle Of Man coinage.
