A humorous collector's item, bobbleheads are much more successful than the earliest prototype, bobblemedics, whose constantly shifting line of sight made them unpredictable surgeons. Experience these whimsical wobblers the way nature intended with today's Groupon: for $150, you get one 7-inch custom bobblehead from The Bobblehead (a $360 value including shipping).
Owned and operated by artist Rick Lynn, The Bobblehead creates a plethora of perpetually nodding figures, including well-known bobblehead likenesses ranging from Che Guevara to Abraham Lincoln. Each hand-sculpted, personalized bobblehead can be customized with six different body options, then artfully bedecked with your choice of eye color, head and facial hair, skin tone, and facial expression. Unlike squeamish significant others or finicky cats, bobbleheads can be dressed in an outfit of your preference before being mounted on a circular base with optional text. Once bobblers-to-be have filled out the personalization form and sent in a photograph, their quirky conversation piece or agreeable dashboard companion will be forged by a gigantic, muscled blacksmith and shipped in approximately four to six weeks.
