Celebrate 45 years of Weebles by looking back at the best play sets

Weebles could do a bunch of things, but they couldn't fall down.

Read to Me

It's a catchphrase we know by heart: "Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down." The egg-shaped toys were a staple for any child growing up in the 1970s, and this week they celebrate 45 years on the market.

It wasn't enough to have just one Weeble. No, we had to beg our parents to buy more of them, and then buy all the accessories as well. Basically, our collections had to be the most robust amongst our friends.

Here's a look back at some of the toys and play sets we might have had as children:

There were tons of Weeble figures released in the 1970s, including a dad, mom, brother, sister, baby, and dog. 

The spooky haunted house play set was perfect for Halloween. 

During the summer, who played with the tree house playset in their very own tree house?

Or maybe you took your Weebles on vacation in their camper. 

If taking a road trip wasn't an option, there was always the airport.

Who had the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, complete with Mickey and Pluto? (And Karen and Billy.)

Better yet, who went to the circus? 

Ah, yes. Those were the days. Today, Weebles still maintain their egg shape.

Alas, we'll always remember the Weebles of yesteryear, and how they really never did fall down.
