To gift a bobblehead or to receive a bobblehead as a gift is always fuss-less, because they go with all age groups, they are always fun to have no matter the situation, you can take them anywhere, and you know what the best part is? They BOBBLE. But do you know your bobbleheads? We mean, do you really know your bobbleheads? So let’s take a journey down the memory lane and discover some facts that you really should know about your favorite gift item.

Bobbleheads go way back

And when we say WAY back, we mean it, because the very first bobblehead in existence is even older than the United States of America. Of course, they were made of ceramic and they were mainly produced by the Chinese and the Germans. Of course, they weren’t called, “Bobbleheads” back then, they were called things like, nodders, wobblers, or even something as simple as moving heads. 

Bobbleheads and Sports have a lifelong connection:

Be it baseball, basketball, or football, the American populace and bobbleheads have a loving history together for as long as our memory takes us. In fact, the reason for bobbleheads being so incredibly popular in the 60s, was because of Baseball. Willie Mays, in particular, has been rendered an immortal because of the popularity of these bobbleheads, and it is an amazing thing to say, isn’t it?

Video Games are getting in on the action:

Building on the loving relationship between sports and bobbleheads, latest video games are also joining the party. Take the Fallout series for example, where you have to collect bobbleheads hidden in random places across the entire game-verse. Everybody knows how we all love to collect these amazing figurines, and that’s what they are making us do in these games. How awesome.

You can even have your own bobbleheads made:

How about you gift someone a bobblehead that looks exactly like them? That is never not funny. Or how about you get a bobblehead made that looks exactly like your boss, and whenever he or she forces you to double down on work, you give it a real smack? Well, in this day and age, you can have all that and more. Just get some custom bobbleheads made from one of the many companies that specialize in doing so, and you can take your adventure and fun level to the next tier. These bobbleheads are even helpful for parents, because they can get a custom nodder made for their kids, depicting their favorite cartoon character and it will fascinate your kids no end.

Bobbleheads are pervasive:

Sports, TV, Dramas, even Presidential elections, bobbleheads are getting in on the action in everything, and there can be no better news. Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and others were subjected to bobbleheading during and before the 2016 Presidential Elections. Which goes to show how pervasive and mainstream these bobbleheads have become over the years.

The credit for the resurrection of this insane interest in bobbleheads, goes to:

The big apple, New York. According to authenticated history, it was the New York Knicks for whom the very first sports bobblehead was created. But that’s not all, The New York Yankees took the craze to another level and inspired other teams to get in on the flow.
