History of National Bobblehead Day
National Bobblehead Day has been celebrated since the year 2015. National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has established this national observance Day. Bobblehead is also known as a nodder, bobblehead, or wobbler. It is a type of collectible toy whose head is often oversized when compared to its body. The head of the bobblehead is connected to the body by a spring or hook instead of a solid connection. Thus a light tap will cause the head to bobble, hence this name. Bobbleheads are found in different shapes, sizes, and have been in existence for 100 years. The figurines of Buddha and various other religious figures called “temple nodders” were produced in Asia during the seventeenth century. These bobbleheads were created with ceramics initially.
The bobblehead variety has grown to include relatively obscure popular culture figures and notable people over the years. This is true in the case of the material, as the bobbleheads are switched from ceramic to plastic. Thanjavur Dolls are famous bobblehead dolls in India. They are of a class known as “Thanjavur Thalayatti Bommai” in the Tamil language, which means “Tanjore Head-Shaking Doll.” They were made of clay or wood and painted in bright colors, and kept as a part of the Navarathri festival that is exhibited. Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 2016 opened a house with the world’s largest collection of bobbleheads. It is a hall of fame section for the best bobbleheads, and it also has the history, making of bobbleheads, and more.
