Playskool Weeble Play Figures Review


    Hasbro first started in 1923. Hasbro, Inc. is a worldwide leader in children's and family leisure time products and services with a rich portfolio of brands and entertainment properties that provides some of the highest quality and most recognizable play and recreational experiences in the world. Hasbro is a brand-driven, consumer-focused global company.  Playskool is a division of Hasbro.


     Weebles are another one of Playskool's great products.  Weebles are little people that weeble and wobble around.  Weeble wobbles are always moving, but never fall down.  I was sent a two pack of the

Playskool Weeble Play Figures.  One was a boy holding a toy sailboat and the other was a girl holding a dolly.  When they came we opened them up.  Jayden immediately tried them out on the tile in the kitchen.  We talked about being gentle since they seemed pretty thick and I didn't want him throwing them.  He would put them on the tile and gently push them.  Then we would sing, "weeble, wobble, weeble, wobble" until they stopped moving.  These quickly became Jayden's toy of choice for the next few days.  In fact as I write this Jayden saw the pictures I was posting and said. "weebles, where's my weebles."  He likes to hold both of them in his arms.  Its so cute when he sings and rocks back and forth himself, "weeble, wooble, weeble, wobble." 


     When my husband saw them he said, "Hey I had those when I was little."  The Weebles are not 'new', but they have been redesigned and now have some great accessories.  I am not sure when Weebles originally came out, but I found some on ebay from as far back as 1974.  There are even a couple in the original package and they are selling for $65.00 and $99.76.  And that is just the weebles play figures two pack similar to what I was sent!!  These items last for a really long time and will never go out of style.  In addition to a couple different packs of the weeble play figures you can also get a weebles Wobblin go -ca, Wobble go Round, or a Musical Tree House.
     I would love to get one or more of these items for Jayden to play with his new weebles.  The Weebles are recommended for ages 12 months and up.  Although Jayden is 2 years old he still enjoys playing with them.  I think this toy is something that can be used for years.  I would love to get some of these play sets to go with our new Weebles Play Figures.  Jayden would have loads of fun.  Thinking ahead I think these would be great for Christmas stocking stuffers. 

Buy it:  The Weebles Play Figures approximate retail $4.99 for the two-pack. 

The Weebles Play Figures can be purchased at many retailers, such as Toys R Us, Target, Kmart, Walmart, Amazon.com, and more.  Although I found that they are priced differently at each store. At Walmart the Weeble Play Figures are $6.96 and at Amazon the different packs are priced differently $6.99-$8.00 depending on the pack.  I would suggest shopping around to find the best price.
