Wobble Kenggy

It was easy to keep children entertained 40 years ago. 

EJ remembers those egg-shaped toys with weight at the fat bottom end that wobble when pushed but never fall completely over. They were either animal or human shaped, some even had sounds when bouncing back and forth.

Japanese traditional doll, the daruma doll, is one such toy and has become a symbol of optimism, good fortune and strong determination. 
Kenggy has those qualities of strong determination and optimism. And doesn't she remind you of those roly-poly wobbly toys of yesteryear?

Dear little Kenggy, she is wonderful. Optimism and determination are invaluable, and she knows it.

Cat said...

Oooo! Yeah!! She does look like a Weeble!! But a nice one! Those things were always kinda weird looking! Actually, though, I'm wonderin' if Kenggy is not trying out some sort of new back stretching yoga technique....personally, I never sit in that position too long because my back starts to hurt...actually, to be honest, I don't think I have ever sat in that position...hmmm...maybe Kenggy is trying to start a new trend!

YOu are so beautiful.
Mom wobbles and weaves (she has an inner ear dysfunction) so she always compares herself to a weeble wobble.

Kenggy you do resemble those toys with heavy bottoms - but we know you are much slimmer than them.

That is an unusual pose. Kenggy you look compact.

Boo-Bah said...

Kenggy, you do look like those toys except you are so much prettier!! I do think you are such a wonderful example of not letting your misfortune hold you down. We humans can learn from you.

Haha ~ too cute~ And I still remember the song and slogan. "Weebles wabble but they don't fall down!" I wonder where those ever went to?
