I have been told kettle bells. However in my experience I have found them to be equal because unless you pick them up nothing will happen. Surprisingly it is not enough to simply have them in the house!
You are hilarious!
I think Kettlebells are the better.
My son has Dumb bells...and they are not used as much!
I'm sick of falling over them too.
Haha! Yes, I've heard kettlebells are excellent for the body.
I prefer dumb bells.
I know what you mean, I'm more familiar with dumb bells myself, but what I've heard about kettlebells has got me into the habit of using them.
Dumbbells, because they can be used in a greater range of movements and exercises; they are also easier for beginners to get started with.
I've heard otherwise, apparently kettlebells work the whole body, whereas dumb bells (because of the way you hold them and the weights being at either end), only work your arms. Funny isn't it?
I would have thought that because you can't lift kettle bells above your head in the same way, or crunch them across your chest when lying flat that there were less movements. It is more likely that kettle bells are capable of these things, but you have to be stronger. Kettles are probably for those who already have quite good upper body strength, while dumbbells are better for those still build up their arm muscles.
I imagine the latter would be best suited to a range of activities.

Dumbbells - less prone to damage the back! Plus, they're more effective, in my opinion.
Myself, I find dumbells much easier to handle because of the balance . . .but I am a klutz.
