Weebles were completely forbidden in my household as we had pledged loyalty to the Fisher Price Little People. I ain’t complainin’ but come one, a Sub and a haunted house? Aggghhhhh! Like our Facebook Page Check out our Instagram Get the expanded digital edition of Rack Toys here.
While working on the Little People list, I came across this piece and really had no idea it existed. I never had weebles as a kid but as a Winnie the Pooh fan, this would have been welcome.
