Nowadays, the custom of making bobblehead dolls and retaining them for self or for gifting or for marketing purposes has become increasingly important. It is being used on the occasions of marriage, birthdays, retirements, Father’s/ Mother’s day and as gifts. The booblehead had its origin in the 1840s. However, in the earlier periods, in the 1950s, it was used in respect of sports and games. In respect of a major League Baseball, by 1960, and series of papier mache bobble head dolls, with cherubic face were produced. Then, the custom baseball player bobblehead (player specific baseball bobble heads) had its genesis in the World Series held in that year. Later, in the next decade, it pervaded into other sports and cartoon characters; also instead of papier mache, ceramic material was used. This material again was switched to plastics, later. After witnessing a trough for about two decades, it has started regaining its prominence. Bobble heads of the Beatles and baseball teams have become collectibles, later.
