Best Toy(s) Ever: Weebles

Third in a series
To appreciate the genius of Weebles, you need to know only one thing: They wobble, but they don't fall down. Maybe you couldn't get the damned Slinky to walk down the stairs or make Farrah roll on her little plastic skateboard, but Weebles were idiot-proof. The perfect toy. I'm guessing that many '70s stoner teens amused themselves with their younger siblings' Weeble sets.

In my drunkiest days, Weeble was my nickname.

Well, I'm sort of Weeble shaped, you know, and I do wobble but seldom actually fall down.

I usually fall asleep before any falling down can occur. Two cocktails, and I'm out.

Well, these days I am more likely to fall asleep in a chair or something, honestly.

As stated earlier, I loved the weebles treehouse. I didn't have it, but my best friend did. Hours of fun.
