What you should know before buying a Bobblehead


What is Bobblehead? 

A Bobblehead is a type of doll which is also recognised as a wobbler or nodder. It is a doll that has an oversized head and a short body size joined with the springs in it. The reason behind fixing the spring inside rather of a solid substance is to make the head of the doll bobble even at the slightest touch. Therefore, it can be said that the name of the bobblehead is due to its bobbling head feature.

At the time of the 17th-century, dolls of Lord Buddha and additional temple nodders were made in many parts of Asia. Whereas in the Western side, the most initial known bobblehead was in Nikolai Gogol’s 1842, based on the brief tale “The Overcoat”, into which the neck of the central character was shown like the neck of a plaster cat which can wag its head. Later on, many bobbleheads were made of various famous personalities. In the 21st century, designers can also make custom bobbleheads as per the desire of customers.
