I have been discussing the my best memory of the Weebles Haunted House with my daughters. All were confirmed on this memory blog. After reading all of the other memories and they were both sadden by the destruction and demise of the weebles. Apart from the slingshot, drowning and burning of the weebles they found it all too comical and peed their pants laughing. I am glad to say that even though they have never played with them and have only seen pictures of the undamaged weebles on the internet, they too have somehow in a weird way have enjoyed the weebles and have decided what they want for Christmas. The Ghost, Cannon and Haunted House, slingshot optional and no dogs allowed.

My older brother and I are 18 mos apart and we were best friends... UNTIL...he went to first grade. It was 1974 and I was playing with my S.S Littleputt Weebles boat - my absolute most favorite thing on earth - and he came home from his first day of school all puffed up. He stomped into the den, kicked over the little boat, and declared "That's what First Graders do!" Things were never the same after that. But I will never forget my passion for Weebles!!

I had the Weebles Treehouse, it was my absolute favorite toy. I wore it playing with it. I also love the Weeble Spooke house and the Raggedy Ann and Andy Weebles. I wish I still had them today. My kids would have loved them too. Weebles, wobbles, but they don't fall down... love it.

The very first ever 1970's WEEBLES Toy Price Guide (2009) is in the works and I am hoping to complete the book finally this spring.
I would appreciate any help and input and comments from various collectors, nostalgic 1970s fans or dealers to help pitch in to make this as complete and indepth as possible.

Some of the features I want to include:
Photo gallery of all figures, playsets, packaging and foreign editions
Original advertisements from toy and department store catalogs
Price Guide for various conditions
Interviews with weebles dealers, fans and hopefully some original people involved in the process of making them back in the 1970s.

I have collected hundreds of pictures of Weebles and playsets in advance of indexing them all for the upcoming Weebles Book and Price Guide. I appreciate any help you can give in helping to index and catalog these figures. I am looking for other peoples input on them and insight into the history of this classic toy series.

Please email me at hoknes@hotmail.com with any thoughts.
The more people who help with input the better this reference book will be! Thanks for your help.

When I was little we lived in Utah and we would visit my Grandma in Ohio. Way in the back of her closet she kept the weebles haunted house. I used to dig it out every time we would come and play with it for hours. Yesterday I thought I would look for one on ebay and buy it for my kids --- who thought they would be selling for hundreds. That toy was one of my favorite memories when I was a kid. I wish I still had it. I do have six vintage weebles that my aunt gave to me because she knew I liked them. I keep them on my son's dresser. My kids always ask what they are as they look much different then the weebles they make today. Such a great toy.

I had the entire weebles farm. It was the best. It even had a horse that you sat the weebles in to "ride".

I remember the size of these things and now they would be a huge choking hazard, no wonder they pulled them. I remember my dog grabbing them and running off with them and scratching up the clear plastic around them with his teeth.

Great toy.

I loved these weebles too. My kids have them today and they are nothing like these. I had the Weebles Marina and that was the coolest toy. The only thing I used to get mad about was that they would not sleep in the boat. Because they would not fall down, they also would not lay down. Great memories this retro stuff!

I remember being a young kid in the 70ís and I had the Weebles Haunted House!!!! It was awesome. I remember it had a library that if you pushed it, the Weeble could go to the other side of the house and there was a mirror on the opposite side of the library. They had Dracula Weeble, Ghost Weeble (which glowed in the dark), Witch Weeble... I canít remember the rest but if someone can refresh my memory that would be sweet. Bring back the Weebles!!!

I am a child of the 70s who started collecting Weebles again with my young nephew. He likes the pilot Weeble in the brown coat the best. My favorite set is definitely the Weeble Treasure Island one; with the hammock and hut and treasure map, etc. Drove my mom crazy finding the green tree-tops and pirate Weebles everywhere! Lots of people seem to be looking for Weebles, and we've accumulated boxes of extras I'm happy sell. I also have an incredible ghost Weeble from France, slightly different from North American version.

I LOVED my Weeble Wobbles. I had the treehouse and the Treasure Island Pirate ship with the two islands. I have a 5 year old and would love to introduce him to the vintage Weebles. Does anyone have any playsets for sale? Especially the two I mentioned above? If so please email me at mstowers521@yahoo.com. Thanks!! I really enjoyed reading everyone's memories. We were lucky to be born in the 70's where things were built to last and seemed almost innovative(at least to us). Times sure have changed, haven't they?!?!

I had em too...LOVED em! I now have a 7 month old son and had hoped to introduce him to the wonderful fun of Weebles but alas upon a search for them the ones now available are SOOOO disappointing! They just don't make em lke they used to. Why do they have to go and mess with a beautiful thing...just like the Farmer Says See and Say. I am okay with the unsafe string being gone but they have cut out like half of the animals and have gone way too stylized. What is this world coming to???

The catch phrase, "Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down" has been a mantra I use when going through hard times. No matter how bad things get and you wobble, but never fall completely down. Remembering this saying has helped many a time.

I worked on the Weeble products in the toy development department at Hasbro in the early 1970s. One of my assignments was to build the Weeble swimming pool, which was later produced in a blue plastic with a slide built into it. I also remember helping with one of the preproduction copies of the Weeble Airport. At that time there were three size Weebles, with the child being the smallest of the family. Due to safety concerns they eleminated the baby size and bumped it to the Mom size. Then Dad and Mom were both the big size. I'd love to have a production copy of these for nostalga sake. :) I also did work on the GI product line.

I remember being about 13, and realizing that weebles were the perfect ammo for a slingshot. The large end was easy to hold, and in mid air it would "flip" to the heavy end... Left one nice bruise.

It only works with the "egg" weebles. These new ones do not have the aerodynamics, and seem to wobble in air, reducing the distance.

I had the weeble family. Dad, Mum, son, sis, a dog and I think a cat...or maybe a grandma? What I remember most about them was that they were the only toy I had that my older brothers found interesting. My favourite childhood memory is of my brothers turning the weebles on their heads and spinning them like tops on the linoleum. Of course, it only works with the early edition weebles...the egg shaped ones with the smooth heads. fantastic!

Does anyone remember the little brown dog weeble? He was my absolute favorite. He actually continued to show up here and there in the bottom of boxes or back of my closet throughout my late childhood, but he's since long gone. I was so disappointed when they came out with the new "safe' weebles! How did we ever survive?

I used to go into the parlor where we had hardwood floors and spin the weebles on their heads. For a moment there, the weeble would be balancing in a blur upon it's head. The ultimate in falling down.

I LOVE THE WEEBLES!!!!! I still have my treehouse set and all the Weebles. I remember playing with that set almost everyday and I now have a daughter and thankfully she will get the enjoyment of playing with my "vintage" set as opposed to the new ones (which are NOT the same). Too bad they don't make them like they used to.

Hello Everyone, I have fond memories of Weebles, only because I was in the advertisements for them, I still have a part of one of the original boxes with a picture of me on with my mop of curly hair & toothy smile. Those were the days.

I used to have a treehouse full of these guys when I was little.

One time, I think on purpose, I put my Wonder Woman weeble in the dishwasher without my mom noticing...

I can remember, clear as day, that when Wonder Woman came out, she'd somehow shrunk inside the plastic bubble. She basically shrunk down to a tube, leaving a clear plastic egg-shaped shell around her.

That's the way I remember it anyway... Man, that was a long time ago...

My mom is getting ready to move and asked me what I wanted to do with my old toys in the attic. I have the Weeble haunted house and magic kingdom in the boxes and with the weebles the last time I looked at them. I too enjoyed many hours of fun with my weebles. The ghost still had half his face last time I checked. I will have to dig them up and put them on ebay. I also have the 1977 Barbie Dream House and all the accessories. There are some other vintage toys, but I am not sure which ones. Thanks for sharing your memories...

Hi...When I was about 4 or 5 ( which would have been the late 60's), I was given, for Christmas, a pink hard plastic doll type "weeble". It stood about 7 to 8" tall, had a face painted on it and I loved it. It is my first memory of a Christmas present. I was totally fascinated that every time I pushed it over it came back. And when it did pop back up, there was a melodic sound that came from the base. I remember holding it down and trying to force it to stay there. I would love nothing more than to get my hands on one of these just for myself :-)...If anyone knows of where I can get one or has one themselves that they would not mind parting with, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You

I had some weebles when I was young. I loved them. I had some circus weebles and three of the ones you show on the last page. A neighbor had this British grandson come over to play and he had alot of weebles. We'd play together with them and share them.

I did not have weebles, but my cousin did. She had all the cool toys. We used to throw them down the wooden stairs of her house as hard as we could, hoping that if we threw them hard enough or made them bounce on the steps enough times, they would finally succomb and 'fall down'. The fact that they did not provided us with hours of perplexity, laughs, and fun. They were great.

My little brother got the WEEBLE haunted house for Christmas one year. He played with it for hours, and since he used to be afraid of the dark, he took the ghost with him to bed and believed since the ghost was glowing that he was watching over him so he could sleep.

Even though I was a little old for this toy, I had fun playing with it with him. We wore the face off the ghost and drew a new one on that looked exactly like Casper- this made him happy.

Then we took another couple of his toys, the Fisher-Price Play Family Village, Brunswick Bowling alley, and FP Play Family House and built a fantasy world with all the characters as citizens. When we found little collectible figurines and plastic cartoon characters from cereal boxes and stuff, we added them to the town's population and played with them for hours. I miss the days when toys stimulated the imagination likes these did.

The Weebles fit right into the Brunswick Bowling Alley's bowling ball return.... so we would make the Weebles go bowling and then they would end up becoming the balls.... the ball return was a little switch with a flipper that looked like a frying pan. You would put your finger in it and click it down and then the arm would catapult the weeble across the room.... what fun!

I'll never forget when we did this to the weeble girl and she fell into the heating grate in the old house. We could see her down there, but couldn't get her out without the help of my dad. By the time he opened the grate and fished a line down there to get her, she was warped from the heat and wouldn't wobble anymore.. her face was all contorted and she looked like a Weeble freak ... so we made her the sick weeble, she became a monster in the haunted house!

Did anyone else have the Pirate Tresure Island set? AWESOME!!! A big Weebles pirate ship w/ a dinghy, 2 islands (including one with a hut that lifted up as a spot to bury treasure). Man, just seven kinds of awesome wrapped in fabulous! Also had the weebles ranch nad my sister had the Winnie the Pooh house (not the tree house, though) and the Disney castle with the working monorail. Did anyone else's parents complain about stepping on the weebles like my Dad? Apparently the "don't fall down" feature meant that the small pointy end always drove into his instep. Maybe I should have cleaned up my toys better!

Anyone have vintage (from the 70s) weeble wobble set(s) they want to sell? I want them for my young children now and think the new ones stink. I had weeble wobble houseboat in the 70s with other weeble wobbles but they burned up in our house fire in 85 so I lost ALL my retro toys (including some great star ways & bionic man/woman stuff). Anyway, if so..please email me danielle@canvassystems.com

wow. what a great website. I'm 33. I had the weeble wooble haunted house as well. I didn't sleep with the ghost weeble wobble as another person stated, however it was my favorite. I had forgotten about the mirror hideway spinning thing. What a great toy. I loved it as many of you have as well. And I too think it's a big reason why I like watching ghost stuff now. :) How awesome of a toy that glows in the dark at that time!?! I mean really.

I thought the Weebles Haunted House was Great. I got that as a kid and I loved it-that ghost, the little secret hiding place/revolving door/mirror getup...classic! I too gave this to some cousins afterwards....I am sure it vanished. It was a ton of fun. Nothing like it now.

I'm 35 years old and I grew up playing with the Weebles. My Weebles had an unfortunate demise though. My brother threw them in water to see if they "could swim" and they shrivled up inside giving them an odd look. I'd love to find some weebles too. I want to give them to my kids.

I was about 5 yrs. old when i got my weebles. I had the tree house and the family with the dog, the camper and a bus. I had those for years, even until my own children were born. But, to the demise of the weebles, my parent's house (where I had them stored) burned down in 2002, along with my treehouse. I used to play with those things under a big tree in our yard, somehow wishing that I could have all of that neat stuff on my own tree.

I also was a big fan of the weebles. I still have the haunted house, the circus, the blimp, and the tree house (I don't know where the leaves are) and I remember that I got the racetrack for Christmas, but it was broken and we had to return it; they did not have anymore in stock, so I never got another one. I have checked the price on them and the only one I have found is 75.00. I also had the weebles house that had the tracks running from it and the weebles actually rolled, that was the last weebles item that I received way back when. I realy enjoyed playing with them, they kept me and my friends entertained for hours. Wish I was still back in the 70's.

I'm 33 and I loved playing with my Weebles House - not the Treehouse or the Haunted House - just the plain and simple suburban style house. It wasn't fancy, but that little weeble family gave me hours of entertainment. I remember that I could put a weeble (usually the "Dad") down the chimney, and somehow he would land in his car and shoot out of the garage. Is this familiar to anyone else? I'd really love to get my hands on one of those houses, but haven't seen it on eBay yet. Help me out, and let me know if you think you know what I'm talking about - or know where to buy one! Thank You!! :)

What can I say about the greatest gift that was ever given to me? Receiving this gift from my aunt that my favorite cousin picked out for me, I just can never forget about it. I played with it day and night and even slept the little Webble people at bedtime. As of this day, I still miss playing with such a simple, imaginary, and creative toy. Any one who played with Webbles will never forget the fun time that they had playing with them. Iím not sure what ever happened to my set of Webble Wobble Tree House, but I can say this if I ever find it I will buy it for my 3 yr old son Devin. A toy like this one is worth sharing with your own children.

The Weeble Huanted house is my Absolute favorite toy memory! I was such a do-gooder as a kid, I gave my house and all my other toys,away to less fortunate kids. I know it went to a good cause, but I should have kept some that meant a lot to me. I did contact Playschool/hasbro to entreat them to bring it back as they have the treehouse, but to my dissapointment this is the reply I got: "As you can imagine, each year we receive many inquiries such as yours, and while we like to hear from our friends, we must decline to accept any unsolicited idea for consideration or review. At Hasbro, our employees are dedicated to making consumers like YOU smile. While we cannot consider your idea for legal reasons, we want you to know that we will continue to work (and play) toward our goal of making you and your family smile whenever you play with a Hasbro product"

Huh? Leagal, thought it was their product to begin with! I say let's bombard them to bring it back. I would love my kids to have the great memeories I did.

Weebles wobble but they don't fall down-cool toy-I will never forget this house I had, and playground equiment (the swing set was as big as the house) plus I recall coveting some other things like the haunted house-my parents never splurged and got it for me-heck, now that i want it for nostaglia or my kids now, I have seen it go for $300 on ebay recently-even the ghost is worth $75 in good shape....should have kept all those toys, they'd pay off my student loans now!

I loved my weebles so much. My mom made me give them all away in the mid 80's to a neighbor for her nieces & nephews to play with. She fostered them off & on. It killed me to do it. I was very attatched to my childhood toys. I remember having the circuis & the treehouse & many many weebles. I know I had more that that but I just dont remember them all, I was only about 3 or so when they came out. A few years ago I found 4 weebles & a little yellow bus that seets 3 at a flea market & only paid $2.00 for them all! I have winnie the pooh, the witch from the haunted house, karen the mousekateer & mickey mouse. I was just checking online to do some identification on them when I ran across this site. My most favorite memory is playing with the trampoline from the circus. I made them bounce for hours!

I, too, had to give my weebles to a cousin...and I wasn't happy about it. I had the weeble train - anyone remember that? As far as I can recall it was white and came in about 3 coaches. It was my last big weeble birthday pressie (in about 1979). All my weebles had names. I don't recall any now except the weeble girl with the red hair that I called 'Susan Weeble'.

Ah, whatever happened to Susan?...

I'm 33, and I had a crapload of Weeble stuff. But the most memorable one was the Weebles Haunted HOuse. I think that it was the very first inkling that I would develop an affinity for the supernatural world. What a great toy.

I too am a weebles fan. I have recently started to purchase the old sets that I had as a child. I just recieved the pop-up camper and car this week. It had the great luggage rack and motorcycle that fit on the back of the camper. My son is old enough now to play nicely with them so I keep buying the sets for him as I can afford them. As a child my brother had the Haunted House and I wish we still did. It goes for big bucks now. I am sure collectors would cringe with the knowledge that I let a child play with near mint condition weebles sets! They are meant to be played with and he has a ball. :>)

I had a weeble that I keep for many years. I took a very small eye screw in the top of her head and strung one of those pull chains thru it and hung it from my rear view mirror. she stayed with me for a long time. Made a great conversation piece. Until one day she shriveled up inside, and died. Was a sad moment, we said some words, and had a funeral."Real Story"

Now I want to kill my gramma's poodle for chewing it up....stupid dog.

Now that I'm all grown up and working in the scientific field I realize that, "Weebles wobble, but they're bottom heavy and have a hemispherical base with which to retain their vertical stance." I just came up with that during lunch, and *yes*, scientists discuss such things.

I don't know how we got them, but I still have the weeble wobble tree house and the haunted house. I think I still have all the furniture for both, but I have NO idea where the weebles are. Luckily, mom NEVER threw anything out, so it's all in my basement. I also have a weeble airport and a weeble blimp that used to drop the weeble right out of it!

I had a Weeble treehouse and a Weeble yacht. What I loved about the treehouse the most was that it looked like a real tree. I always like to feel the plastic-molded tree leaves and was always amazed at the level of detail.

G'day, I used to do the T.V. commercials for the Weeble Wobbles back in the early 1970's in Australia.It is a real suprise to see something about them on the web.I hope everybody is still enjoying these critters and that your kids get a kick out of them too.Cheerio Greg Phelps

I used to have the Haunted House weeble set. The ghost was my favorite, of course, because he was glow-in-the-dark. The house would make a creaking sound when you opened it up. I wish I still had it. One day I was outside playing and noticed that my dad had recently burned some stuff on the burn pile. To my horror, I saw the melted remains of the roof of the haunted weeble house. I guess he was clearing out stuff that I didn't play with or maybe it had been broken. I don't remember exactly. Funny thing.. years later, after college, my best friend and I were talking about when we were kids. She said, "I remember when we had show and tell in Kindergarten, and you had this weeble wobble haunted house that you brought in one time. I thought that was the coolest thing EVER! I was so jealous and wanted one." I couldn't believe that 19 years later, she remembered one of the best things from my childhood. wow.

Wow, dittos on the weeble haunted house. I *loved* that. It was one of my favorite toys growing up. My favorite part, though, was the glow-in-the-dark weeble ghost. I used to sleep with it at night and carry it everywhere I went. I can't believe I lost it somehow...
