Bobobin - an abbreviation of 'bobbin up' in the nursery rhyme 'Wind the bobbin up'. Why use two words when you can use just the one! So our rhyme now goes, "Wind the bobobin, wind the bobobin..."


  1. You've just reminded me of singing that on loop to my boy when he was small. How could I have forgotten the bobbin song?! Or bobobin song as it is in your house!

    1. Glad to have brought back what I can only hope are pleasant memories of 'the bobbin' :-D Singing on loop seems to be one of the prerequisites for motherhood.
