Okay, so my cousin is obsessed with collecting bobble heads – I mean over the top obsessed. She has a bobble head for anything you can think of. Her car is completely filled with them that she turns heads as she drives by. She even has shelves on shelves of bobble heads in her living room. I couldn’t even count how many this girl has it is ridiculous, but she loves them. She even found a bobble head that perfectly resembles her golden retriever. However, the one bobble head my cousin did not have, was of herself. So as I was contemplating on what to get her for her birthday I knew the perfect gift. When she opened up the box and saw herself in custom bobble head form she practically cried from excitement. I mean this toy looked shockingly like my cousin, even I was surprised. I thought to myself, what a great gift it completely resembled her. It made the whole family laugh and everyone could enjoy it. I even ended up getting a bobble head doll of myself for my girlfriend to keep in her car so I could ‘keep an eye’ on her. She thought it was a hilarious gift and I hope she thinks of me every time she sees it.
Since I bought my cousin her own personalized bobble head she has tried to get me into collecting bobble heads myself, and I must say I have ended up with quite a few. The fact that you can turn anything into a bobble head is such a cool and funny idea. My family has been collectors of everything – baseball cards, beanie babies, stamps, dolls, you name it; but the collection I’ve most enjoyed is my cousins. Everything in her collection has gotten so into detail it’s amazing how far toys have come. I remember when I saw my first bobble head, it was a dog with a simple face in the back of a car that didn’t look that great. Now you can literally create a bobble head to look exactly like you, it’s hilarious and a great idea.
I told my girlfriend that when we get married we will definitely have a custom cake topper. Personalized bobbleheads, of course and as they carry the cake out the heads will bobble and it’ll be hilarious.
Overall, it was such a good idea to get my cousin and girlfriend bobble heads as gifts. My girlfriend keeps hers in her room. It brought smiles to their faces and of course that was the plan from the start. What I did not expect was that I would become a fan of them as well. I think that it is so funny that you can take any type of person or animal and create a customized bobble head. I know that when I am looking for a way to surprise my cousin I will get her a new customized doll to add to her extensive collection and even though there is no way I can compete with her collection, it is still cool to have a few of my own.
