Sorry, no etymologies found.
Every kind of sweet was on display, szilvas gomboc plum dumplings, strudel and the famous Dobos-torta amongst others.
Unlike a weeble though, the gomboc is not weighted, and relies upon its shape to achieve self-righting.
Like the famous Weebles, a gomboc will always return to the same position, righting itself when turned over.
There are many different solutions to the mathematical puzzle, giving rise to many different shapes of gomboc, but all are very nearly (mathematically) spherical and must be machined to tolereances of up to a hundredth of a millimetre.
A gomboc (to use its web-friendly spelling) is a mathematical puzzle made real.
Even though it's only a "mini-gomboc", it's a lot bigger than I expected.
