A childs toy from the 1970's that consisted of a platic table-tennis like bat with a rubber ball attached to the centre by elastic.
The ball could be hit repeatedly and always come back.

n. - One who appears foolish, helpless, or ignorant. Possibly derived from the typographical "dingbat", refering to tendency of one described as a dingbat to put hearts, smilies, and other superfluous cute symbols on written correspondence.
That girl acts helpless and stupid like a dingbat, but underneath it all, she might be more intelligent than she gives herself credit for.

a term used to describe a person (often a woman) who does not think before acting and most times acts on pure impulse.
Some start off intellectually or emotionally retarted which eventually leads to being a dingbat. Others are born that way and are cursed with being a dingbat for life.
ex: I dated some real dumb chicks, but that Courtney girl was the biggest "dingbat" I ever encountered.

Female, and perhaps effeminate males, that are exceptionally flighty and irresponsible are often called dingbats. Reason and accountability are concepts that dingbats refuse to acknowledge.
The dingbat got a speeding ticket on the way to her hair appointment. She was not upset about receiving the citation, but was very unsatisfied and upset about her bad haircut.
