When I was a kid, the jacks were metal.
Quoting teaching1972:When I was a kid, the jacks were metal.
True.... those are the newer kind. Even these look newer somehow.
How about this? Remember having one of these? I did!
I have one of those - loved looking at the travel disks I had - maybe that is why I want to travel - mmm???
Thanks so much!!! I was the jacks champ of my fifth grade class! I'd completely forgotten all about it! We really knew how to have fun as kids, today kids would be so bored with our toys.
I was never good at it, but it kept me busy trying. :)

Maybe that was the point...to keep us busy...lol I played jacks constantly and my mom played with me too. She was so much better (of course), if you play with someone better than you, you also become a better player...same with tennis. I loved playing with those who were better, I learned so much.
my sister could do jacks - I never got it - I think because my hands were to small - hahahaha
I loved jacks too. I remember them being metal also. I also remember that I accidentally left one on the floor and my mom stepped on it. Ouch...
