What is a Bobblehead
A bobblehead, also known as a nodder or wobbler, is a collectible figurine with an oversized head compared to its body, connected by a spring or hook that allows the head to move or “bobble” with a light touch. The concept of bobbleheads dates back to Asian figurines in the seventeenth century, but the Western reference appeared in Nikolai Gogol’s 1842 story. They gained popularity in the 1950s, particularly in the sports and entertainment world. Major League Baseball introduced player-specific bobbleheads in the 1960s. The 1990s saw a resurgence due to cheaper manufacturing, leading to their inclusion in pop culture and giveaways. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum opened in Milwaukee in 2016, and personalized on-demand bobbleheads became popular in the 2000s.
