Oh, they wobble all right

I asked for this one year for Christmas. I mean, who could resist that monorail? Or those teacups? But I didn’t get the whole set. I only got the Mickey Mouse Weebles themselves.

Maybe it was out of spite or maybe just curiosity, but I shortly found out what happens when Weebles take a spin in an Easy Bake Oven. They do not turn into a pile of goo, as I had been anticipating. The outsides remain perfect, but the innards–the Wobble faces, as it were–shrivel up into nothingness. Thus leaving me with a collection of egg-shaped ghosts with mouse ears.

And those are no fun to play with at all, even if they don’t fall down.

  1. I just put on my Halloween costume, of which I made a huge tulle skirt. My husband took one look at me and told me I looked like a Weeble. Compliment? I don't think so!

  2. I remember the ads but I never saw any of these in real life. My son had some sort of jumping bean toy that seemed to be a later generation of this concept.
