More on the History of Weebles

This trade literature collection keeps turning up more information on weebles! First the Strawbridge catalog, and now a catalog for pose-able circus toys "Schoenhut's Marvelous Toys" which has an add on the back for "Rolly-Dolly" toys.  Patented in 1909!

I guess Noah forgot to take out a patent.
