Weeble Movie!

November 24th, 2010

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Weebles.

Kenny and Bug

I remember Weebles from when I was a kid. I never had any but I distinctly remember them, especially the song from the commercial and we didn’t even have TV!! (my family was weird) Do you remember it? Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down!

Well, I’m happy to say that Weebles are still around with an updated spin on the old song! I finally got to play with them after all these years when Bug and I got to test out the latest Weebles with the Musical Treehouse. We had some fun making a little video for you.

I kept it short and sweet, mostly because I have the newest version of i-movie on my new laptop and I don’t know how to use it! Blarg. But I think the video still captures how fun and silly Weebles are to play with no matter how old you are. The sounds and song that the Musical Treehouse make are downright catchy (not the song in the video, I had to put that in there to mask my annoying voice). My daughter may or may not have pushed the music button over and over again just so she could bust a move on her imaginary dance floor.


But then that’s just Bug. She’s silly.

I’m sure if you have kids you have a silly story too. Do your kids rock out to their electronic toys? Or maybe you have a silly story from when you were a kid? Share it in the comments and you could possibly win a $100 HasbroToyShop.com gift card and Weebles gift pack.

    My son loves Weebles. He just got his first Weebles a couple days ago and he is so crazy for them! He spins them and it just tickles him.He is a really silly two year old.
    Wish me luck

  2. Susan Smith Says:

    We love to sing songs and put our own silly verses in them, we also make funny faces and tickle each other.

  3. Sarah Says:

    When myy oldest was a tot she would bouce up and down with her bouce and play tigger…..T-I-double G-rrrrrrr……..

  4. Lisa Says:

    My youngest is 13 months, so we’re just starting the silliness with toys. I love it! His current favorite thing to do is to push his ride-on toys around and crash into Daddy. When Daddy hollers and jumps away, he backs up and rams him again. It’s awesome.

  5. Jennifer Says:

    My 3 little ones are so silly. It’s is so fun to see the different ways they play with their toys even in ways they aren’t meant to be. They don’t know yet the “right way” to do things so they do what they think is fun. I also LOVE watching them play with non-toy items (boxes, laundry baskets) and seeing their imaginations run wild. Hearing them laugh is one of the things I love about being a mom. :)

  6. Jennifer Says:

    I tweeted :)


  7. Cris Richman Says:

    My kids get crazy silly with wii games!The kids also love being crazy silly dancing to music.


  8. Sara B Says:

    I remember the old Weebles! Would love to get them for my nieces, who love to play pretend– their latest is to play restaurant, which always devolves into really goofy orders for funny foods, and the waitress dropping big platters of yucky stuff on the customers!

  9. Rachel Says:

    We don’t have many automated music toys (not really the right term, but close enough), however a few days ago at library story time they played the “sugar pie, honey bun” song and both kids were definitely rocking.

  10. Heather Says:

    I grew up loving Weebles. I had the most awesome treehouse and one of the cars. My husband had the RV. I would love to share Weeble with my two boys.

    As for rocking out- My husband’s grandmother gave us a turkey than sings and dances to “turkey in the straw”. While my husband finds it terribly annoying, I cannot get rid of the darn turkey because both boys would enjoy dancing to the music and screaming “Hay HAY HAY”.

  11. Carrie Says:

    I just got a couple of natural toy catalogs that I used to shop from when Erik was a baby. Ha! I’ll never do that again. Erik totally rocks out to the electronic toys. He’s even been singing the songs that all baby Elsa’s toys are singing. We just brought out a tub of toys from his toddler days and both he and Elsa are rocking out. We have a specific radio that plays some catchy tunes and they have been “dancing” together.

  12. Karina Says:

    my kids would love these

  13. Mami2jcn Says:

    My 15 month old daughter is pretty silly how she dances to the Jeopardy theme song.

  14. Carolyn HAGERMAN Says:

    My little grandkids would just love these Weebles. I Do!!!!! I would love to win them for the kids too!!!

  15. S.Lim! Says:

    My sister and I used to rock out when we were kids. We would put on a record and in our socks, would pretend we were Olympic ice skaters on the hardwood floors. We definitely wiped out quite a few times.

  16. Jessica Says:

    when my sister and I were little, we put our barbies on the hearth to dry off after their dip in the barbie pool. unfortunately, there was a fire in the fireplace at the time and well, from then on, we then got to play with half bald, tar baby barbies!

  17. Lorie Says:

    My youngest rocks out to EVERYTHING! I love buying her things that make noise and then trying to catch her on video when she is dancing to the music!

  18. Jess D Says:

    My kids rock out to their electronic toys. They have an electric guitar and various other toys that play music. My kids also rock out to empty popcorn tins. My kids even rock out to rubberbands stretched between dresser drawer knobs. There’s a lot of rocking out at our house. :-)

  19. Elizabeth @ Table for Five Says:

    My daughter is 5 and she totally rocks out with her electronic toys. She has a Sid the Science Kid microphone and she’ll pick it up and say “introducing the Kaitlyn show!” and then just start singing something made up and dancing around. She also has an electronic keyboard that she pretends she is performing a rock concert for us :)

  20. Tabathia B Says:

    We usually rock out doing karaoke even the baby participates in the singing

  22. beck Says:

    I had no idea what weebles were until we picked up the old-school kind at a garage sale and my husband sang the little “weebles wobble but they don’t fall down!” ditty for me. Talk about memorable advertising!

    K will regularly press and re-press the buttons for music on some of her toys so she can dance and spin. Drives me nuts until I realize I can put ACTUAL music on for her. That way we both win. =)

  23. Jodi Says:

    My 5 year is very silly…happy and silly pretty much all the time. Whenever he hears music that has any kind of beat he will totally bust out his “moves”. This kid can dance..he will do a little breakdance, the worm, and a number of dance moves that don’t have names. Did I mention that he will do this everywhere? Yes, it’s true, everywhere.

  24. Stacey Ball Says:

    At 6 months old it is all about the electronics right now!! Giggles and tummy sways abound.

  25. mollie Says:

    my niece loves anything that will make tons of noise!

    My son is only 6 mos, but we get silly by making faces and funny noises :)

  28. Gina Maddox Says:



  29. Beth Says:

    Does my kid get silly with the music in her toys? Yes. Like Bug she rocks it out. Only for her, at 17 months, the big deal is to hit the Alphabet Song ad infinitum on her older sister’s word whammer fridge toy thing (insert letter magnets into airplane, have airplane tell you letter sounds OR in the case of my youngest, dance over and over to the ABCs and yell if anyone turns it off…until this week when she learned to turn it on herself…)
    Ah kids.

  30. Sally Says:

    My kids don’t rock out with their electronic toys, because I’m a mean mom who doesn’t like to buy batteries. I would probably do it for these, though.

  31. Yara Says:

    Kevin has a Sesame Street ‘boom box’ he’s been dragging around since before he could walk. He loves to boogie to SS tunes! In fact, he was part of a cloth diaper dancing babies video last year. It was adorable.

  32. Meghan Says:

    My nephew would adore this! His favorite toy right now is a box that you put different shapes into, and it plays a song when the shape goes through the slot. Well, he figured out that he doesn’t have to actually put the shape through the hole to get it to play, he just has to cover the sensor in the slot and the music starts up. He’ll sit and wiggle back and forth as the music plays, and stick his chubby little finger over the sensor as soon as it stops playing so it’ll start right back up!

  33. Summer Says:

    My daughter makes up her own words to songs like yesterday she changed the words to humpty dumpty! she is the biggest goofball!!

  34. Katie Says:

    My son will dance to ANY kind of music.. If his toys are making it or if it’s on the tv or coming from an actual radio – it doesn’t matter. He loves to dance anywhere, anytime.

  35. AngieSue Says:

    I remember the original song! I love Weebles!

  36. TIna Says:

    My kids don’t really rock out to their electronic toys, we don’t really have many of them–they have enough instruments they like to make their own music. I LOVE overhearing them singing in their room to their own songs. My 2nd born is more musical and will rock more then my older one ever did.

  37. turkeylurker Says:

    I echo PP as we don’t have that many electrontic toys. As my little one is still just 2, and not talking, we don’t have that many silly stories, yet. One of the silly things she did this evening though, was to make a hopscotch from gift wrap paper. As a family we all had to jump over each roll, one by one. We also all had to clap for each other. Hope this counts as a silly story!

  38. Becki Says:

    My husband and I aren’t big on the electronic toys, but my daughter loves rocking out to anything musical. She can turn almost anything into a drum set… which my mother in law says that she gets from her father :)

  39. Val Says:

    My silliest childhood moments happened when I was a teenager. My little sister is 11 years younger than me and she really brought out the silly in me. Our silliest moment was the summer before I went to college. I had spent the summer babysitting her while our parents worked, we shared a bed and a room and she liked my stuff better than her own stuff, typical sister stuff. I was 18 and she was 7 and our parents took us on this 10 day family vacation to Yosemite. There were a few mishaps on the trip (tire blowout, dad getting burned then stung by a bee) and we had each had enough of each other by about the 7th day of vacation. It also didn’t help that she insisted on sleeping together in a tiny bunk bed rather than sleep alone on the top bunk. We were practically on top of each other. So, after going to the nature center and learning about the mule deer in the park and seeing deer everywhere, we started singing stinky baby mule deer over and over to each other, which lead to stinky tunes with each other’s names. We sang the stinky song all day and by the next day mom forbade us from singing stinky songs. It’s been almost 10 years since then and we still sing stinky songs to each other. It cracks my husband up and our mom just smiles and shakes her head.

  40. chelsie Says:

    Not many electronic toys to dance to around here, but just tonight, as the cast of Glee broke out in to another one of their fantastic songs, my 1 year-old-son stopped nursing, got a big grin and started “dancing” in my lap. It was hilarious! Silly while he dances, that’s my boy!

  41. trixx Says:

    Growing up, I don’t remember Weebles at all… and I grew up in the 80s so obscure toys are the norm for me. Weird. But man, are they adorable all roly-poly and such.

    I have a silly story. Sis and I used to play with stuffed animals the time, much like any other little girl. We’d take them everywhere including bike rides. We used to also love having tea parties with them. For unknown reasons we’d use to plop down in other people’s front lawn and have elaborate tea parties with our stuffed animals. We didn’t seem to adhere to private property rules it seems. No one kicked us off the lawn, but what a sight we surely must of been! :)

  42. Robyn Says:

    I totally loved the Weebles when I was little!

    My girl is still pretty little, but she loves music. We like to rock out to the Ting Tings and Gossip, but really any music gets her excited. She started out just kind of bending her knees in time to the music but now she’s starting to try to jump and bop her head. It’s so fun to watch her and encourage her.

  43. Nicole Says:

    We definitely loved the Weebles. And also had no TV growing up!
    We used to rock out to THE SAME children’s tape every time we went for a drive in the car (frequently) for more than a year. I’m not sure how my mother stood it, but we LOVED it.

  44. karen Says:

    We get silly around the dinner table adding when we take turns to add words to a sentence prompt, making it longer and sillier as we go. Usually it stems from something someone says during conversation, making it random and fun.

  45. Cristine Says:

    My daughter will rock out to anything! She loves to sing and she is quite the dancer. She makes up her own songs and moves to go with them! It’s so much fun to watch!

  46. Dena Says:

    My husband just dug out some of his old electronic toys for our son. A couple of them are actually educational. They aren’t as ritzy as today’s versions, but still work and he loves them!

  47. Heather Says:

    Love the Weebles!
    My daughter has this stupid spinny toy (from her Uncle!) that has all these horribly annoying songs that she LOVES! And of course she knows how to turn it on now, so even the off button doesn’t help. I even put it in the basement for a while and she found it and brought it back up to rock out to and annoy Mommy with.

  48. Danielle Says:

    My boys like to rock out and play air guitars and my 4 year old makes guitar noises while he’s doing it.

  50. Tina Michelle Says:

    That was seriously a super sweet video! I really loved the pictures too. I think you are pretty talented. Glad I found your blog! My little 3 and 4yo girls love to get books and pretend to read them like they are music and then dance with them. It is so fun to watch but I have to pretend I am not watching and I have to hide my video camera cause their rules are no grownups can watch.

  51. Maria Says:

    My daughter likes to pretend we’re rock stars.

  52. Kelly Massman Says:

    Now that my son is 16, we play ping pong or the WII to get silly. Otherwise, he stays as far away from the parents as possible! :-)

  53. Leah Says:

    My kids rock out to their electronic toys a lot! They really rock on Guitar Hero, but that is easy to rock out on! ha ha

    My son love to dance to any kind of music. Even when the ice cream truck would pass by during the summer, he’d start dancing.
    Thanks so much.

    We make pictures with blocks and then have the others guess what the picture is.

  61. Carrie Says:

    When I was a kid me and my three older sisters would put on our under-roos (underwear that looks like super heros, Wonder Woman, Superman, etc.. they have top and bottoms) and dance and groove to my parents records. Not sure why the under-roos, but the memory is burned into my mind. Lol. I have two little ones who would LOVE these Weebles. :) prestonandcarrie(at)hotmail(dot)com

  62. Heather S Says:

    My sister and I had this karioke microphone that you could sing into…we thought we were rock stars and really go into it. I am sure our parents had a good laugh about it.

    my son gets silly by talking jibberish and making up nonsense words

    We will be in the car with the music on and my 3 year old daughter will start singing to it. Then my 1 year old son will mimic her is is sorta cute and funny at the same time. If you look at her she will get all emabarrased while she is singing and stop but if you don’t she thinks you can’t hear her for some reason.

    Silly songs are always a hit but one of our faves is changing the rules to games we play frequently. For example, CandyLand. Have you ever played CandyLand backwards. It’s a hoot! ;-)

  87. Tami Vollenweider Says:

    I remember when my son was very small! He would make this silly expression on his face! He knew it,because every time he did,I couldn’t help,but laugh! It was kind of a game for him,because he always got so excited when he did it!

  88. Anne Says:

    One day, I’m waiting in the drive thru at the bank to make a deposit. All of a sudden, my son reaches out and starts rubbing the back of my head. I turn around and ask him what he’s doing and he tells me… I’m looking for the eyes in the back of your head! I couldn’t stop laughing!

  131. Rosey Says:

    We play ‘tag, you’re it’ or ‘hide and seek’ with our three-year-old all of the time. A few days back my 17-yr. old was playing hide-and-seek with him, and they were living it up, laughing, hiding, etc.; and it got really quiet. I could see my older son trying to be quiet hiding in the foyer…but the little guy, nothing. We went into my bedroom where he was sitting watching Yo Gabba Gabba that happened across the tv. He’d totally left the older one hanging and it was hilarious. The older son said, ‘Hey, bud, I thought we were playing.’ The little guy said, “it’s not playtime right now. I’m too busy.”

    He’s silly. And we laughed. :)

  132. catherine copeland Says:

    My oldest son used to actually name each of his cars. No not for mustang, things like sam, ike, joe, and terminator. I think that’s because his cousin was a girl and all her dolls had names. so silly. Hopefully he will outgrow that by the time he’s old enough to get his own car

    As kids, my sister and I had a playhouse outside of our house. My father actually built a little playhouse out there and we’d spend hours in the playhouse playing or reading. It was a ton of fun. There were times we’d put on plays, they were terrible but we always drew and audience (my parents, their friends and neighbors.)
