The correct spelling is "look-see".

To take a look-see means to check something out or to look at something.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, this term comes from Chinese "看見", each letter loosely translating to "look" and "see", and entered English via Chinese Pidgin English.
Other words and phrases with the same source include
"long time no see" (很久不見 very long-time not see)
"chop chop" meaning "hurry up!" (速速 hurry hurry).
Incorrect: "I'll take a looksie."
Correct: "I'll take a look-see."

You've seen Looksies Crapsies everywhere. They're dully sitting on the shelves in your dining room and bursting out the seems at your grandma's house. Sometimes they're hung up and displayed on the wall with hollow phrases like 'Family' and 'Live, Laugh, Love' *insert audible gag

These are all the knick knacks you've acquired throughout your mundane life and are now (proudly?) displaying around your house in an effort to appear refined and cultured. But it's really just a bunch of stuff that is taking up space. Looksies Crapsies serve no utility purpose, they are simply Things To Look At (Looksies) that are essentially just Crap (Crapsies).

"I bought a miniature Eiffel Tower replica as a souvenir from a guy (one of thousands, isn't that A-MA-ZING?!?) who was selling them on the street in Paris. Can't wait to put it on our coffee table to show how well traveled and cultured we are!" - Karen
