A doll with a head that bobbles: that is the classic bobblehead doll. And that could very well be the end of the story.
But it’s not.
The fun begins when bobblehead dolls are customized to represent something or someone in particular. A custom bobblehead doll is the perfect blend of art and laughter.
But before the fun begins, you have to decide what or who your custom bobblehead doll is supposed to represent. You will never run out of ideas for custom bobbleheads.
Here are 5 to get you started:
1. Your Favorite Pet
Who says bobbleheads have to be modeled after humans. Pets are people too. If not, at least they are great subjects for custom bobbleheads.
Make this gift card out to yourself.
You likely can’t take your favorite pet with you to the office. But you could put a bobblehead of her on your desk.
It will be like she’s right there with you, except without all the barking, territory marking, and… You get the idea.
2. Bobblehead Selfie
All of the power, science, chemistry and engineering that goes into smartphones these days has been reduced to one thing by the masses, taking selfies.
If you are going to take selfies, why not take them to the next level?
A custom bobblehead selfie is a great gift that reminds friends, family, spouses and other domestic partners that you are always there for them. So don’t hesitate to give the gift of yourself.
3. Confidence Boosters
If you think self-esteem is tough for adults, try being a kid again. It is harder than ever to navigate the grade school social highway with your ego intact.
Parents can give the gift of self-confidence by presenting a child with a bobblehead of themselves as their favorite superhero. It can be a reward for good grades on an exam, or politeness, or neatness, or any good thing that can be called out in a special way.
Because it is a custom bobblehead, your child’s likeness could be them ripping open their shirt to reveal a superhero emblem underneath.
Just know that some places charge extra to customize the body. There will also likely be a separate charge for glasses, masks, and head gear. When pricing your custom bobblehead, be very specific about what you want.
4. Sales Incentives
Sales rooms are powered by egos and incentives. Custom Bobbleheads of your sales team can help you tap into both.
The winner of your weekly contests can be represented by their triumphant bobblehead prominently displayed.
5. Bobblehead Family
As the old saying goes, the family that bobbles together… Well, you get the idea.
Next time, instead of a family portrait, why not try something a little different?
Why not do family bobbleheads every few years. The kids will love them, the grandkids will adore them. And for the first time, the Joneses will want to keep up with you.
There is no end to the creative ways to customize and utilize bobblehead dolls. If you are an out of the box thinker, give one firm bobble for “yes!”
