Bobbleheads Have Been Around Longer Than You Think!
It's been called a nodder and a wobbler, but you know it as a bobble head. This figure with the oversized head and a spring for a neck that makes the head wobble when you touch it has sat on top of many a collector's shelves, table or desk, or been enjoyed by children of all ages since at least the 1950s. Truth is, bobble heads can be traced as far back as the 1700s in Asia and the 1800s in the West, including in the United States. Over the years, celebrities as varied as sports stars, entertainers and politicians, have been immortalized as wobbly dolls, not to mention popular fictional characters. You might say being chosen is an honor.
Popularity in bobble head figures and toys has only grown over the years. Just about every major sports team in the United States offers bobble head giveaway nights featuring one of their star players during the season. And sizes range. Some cereal companies have offered small bobble heads in their cereal boxes, while the Guinness Book of World Records reports the largest figure as 15 feet tall. January 7 has been National Bobblehead Day since 2015, and there is even a National Hall of Fame and Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which holds the largest collection anywhere.
