Here’s a somewhat funny story about a recent Prince Fielder Bobblehead that the Texas Rangers did.
Most of the 15,000 Bobbleheads had “Medical Center Arilington” painted on them instead of “Medical Center Arlington”. I bet the sponsor was not too pleased! Most bobbleheads are made in China, and given that English is not the native language over there, quality control is key. Imagine getting 15,00 of them wrong!
We also make some of our bobbleheads in China and some in Mexico, so we spend lots of time making sure all the details are right. We did spend a year making them in the US in 2010, but the costs turned out to be too high (almost bankrupted us!). And we promise to spell it A-R-L-I-N-G-T-O-N, don’t worry!
