Weebles wobble but they don't fall down!

One of the benefits of having children is that you can unashamedly play with kids' toys once again. My daughter's have a fine collection of vintage Weebles (the old Airfix ones with the scary hollow faces) which has given me a perfect opportunity to start playing again. They've got all the extras too, like the Weebles bakery which has a little metal bell over the door that jangles when a customer wobbles in, a Weebles playground with slide, roundabout and swings and even a Weeble police van (for taking away bad Weebles).

At the moment, the favourite game involves sending all the Weebles hurtling down the slide into a pile at the bottom, where they instantly spring back up on their 'feet', and then we arrest one of the bad Weebles for being a bit rough on the slide (tough but fair I think).

Did you used to have Weebles or do you still play with them now? Tell us all about it on our Weebles Wobble page.
