Looking for the name of a toy.(no picture,sorry)
« on: Monday 04 July 2016, 08:25 pm »
Hi all,new here.Joining and searching toy forums because I've become obsessed with finding the name
of a toy that I got in the late 70's-early 80's.It was a noise maker to be exact.I spent a lot of time in
Queens NY growing up,so I'm not sure if this toy was only available in that area.They were sold mostly
in candy/toy stores,five and dimes etc.Usually with the other junkie stuff from Asia,like
pump water rockets,disc guns,cap bombs,etc.

Description:I remember a blue plastic cane similar to the control stick of a fisherPrice rolling cornball popper.
On one end was a plastic piece to grip the cane,on the other end was what looked like a yellow plastic(I think) device
that held what seemed like half a Black rubber ball (I swear it looked like a handball)What you did was insert a
piece of paper or cardboard in to the device then the ball half was secured on top of the paper,and then you took
the cane and slammed it on the ground popping the paper and making a loud bang.

If you know the name,please let me know.Thanks.

this is the only cap cane I could find.
It's from the 1940's. Maybe yours was a more modern version of this?
