    Yeah, type that into google and you get a "weighted doll". "Bobo doll" . . . makes sense.

    Babylon translator was actually right, for once. ^_^

    When my kids were little, they had toys called weebles made by a company named Playskool. They were weighted dolls that fit this discription. Weebles is a brand name, and not a generic name for that type of doll.

    If I remember correctly, "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down".
