Clickers/Crickets

Since the later part of the 1800's, tin toys have been popular. One of the most common toys was called a "Tin Cricket" -- a generic term for any small metal toy with a piece of spring steel attached, that clicked when pressed. The first ones were made of tin. One of the most common uses for clickers has been for advertising.
