Walk through any office, and you will likely spot a few bobbleheads. These wobbly figurines are great fun to have around, although most celebrate people we will never meet.
For something a little more personal, try Handmade Custom Bobbleheads. These mini caricatures are sculpted and painted by skilled artisans, based on any photo you provide. They make a great gift for family and friends, and a nice addition to your desk.
There is nothing wrong with owning figurines of your favorite athletes and movie characters. However, having an artist create a bobblehead from your likeness is infinitely cooler.
The process is pretty straightforward. You simply upload a photo of the person you want to see with a big, wobbly head, and choose a pose. This could be sitting behind a desk, standing proudly in superhero attire, or dressed ready for the catwalk.
The image is then passed to a skilled model maker, who crafts a 3D caricature. The likeness is usually spot on, albeit with a clay complexion. You should receive your bobblehead around 4 to 6 weeks after placing an order.
The Custom Bobbleheads make really nice gifts, and are an amusing way to mark your territory (think Dwight from The Office). They are normally priced at $105 each, but you can order now for just $42.49 with the festive discount code MerrySave15. Read the rest
