Bobbleheads have been around for decades, delighting fans and collectors with their quirky nods and playful demeanor. But in recent years, the popularity of custom bobbleheads has exploded, with more and more people opting to give them as unique and personalized Christmas gifts.
For those who are not familiar with bobble heads, they are figurines that have a weighted spring attached to their heads, allowing them to "bobble" or move up and down when touched. Originally created in the 1960s as promotional items for sports teams, bobbleheads have since evolved into collectibles featuring a wide range of characters and designs.
One of the biggest reasons for the rise in popularity of personalized bobbleheads is their ability to capture the unique characteristics and personalities of the person they are designed to represent. With a little bit of creativity and attention to detail, it can be a truly one-of-a-kind gift that is both thoughtful and fun.
There are many companies that offer bobblehead dolls services, and the process is generally very straightforward. First, the customer selects the body type and pose for their bobblehead, which can range from a simple standing pose to more elaborate action scenes. Next, they can upload a photo of the person they want to be represented, or provide detailed instructions and reference images to the artist.
The artist will then use this information to sculpt it by hand using high-quality polymer clay. The clay is molded and shaped to match the photo, and fine details such as facial features and clothing are added using a variety of sculpting tools.
After the clay has been shaped and detailed, the bobblehead is baked in an oven to harden the clay and ensure durability. Once the bobblehead has cooled, the craftsman will assemble them. The whole process from start to finish can take several weeks, depending on the complexity of the sculpture and the workload of the artist.
But the end result is well worth the wait, as a custom bobble head is a truly unique and personal gift that is sure to be cherished for years to come. They make a great addition to any collection and can be displayed on a desk, shelf, or mantel as a fun conversation piece.
Christmas 2022 is just around the corner, and if you don't have a gift for your family yet, why not try a custom figure? If you do, the recipient of these gifts will be laughing!
