Bobblehead dolls first hit the market in the 1950s. Since then, they have grown in popularity and variety. Consequently, they have become an extremely popular collectors item – and a great hobby to take on. Here are some tips on how to get started on your own collection.
Consider picking a theme for your collection. Since bobbleheads have so much variety you may want to make your collection very specific. Some examples include antiques, baseball or other sports figures, popular TV characters, musicians, or even classic actors and actresses from past decades.
Let all of your friends and family know you are starting a bobblehead collection. Whenever it is a gift-giving time, they will know exactly what to get you and they’ll know you will love and appreciate their gift.
Check the websites of your favorite sports team or television series to see if you can find deals on bobblehead collectors’ items. Sometimes there will be promotion discounts, so it is important to check back regularly. You can also search online for specialty bobblehead shops that do custom jobs. Additionally, keep an eye out for bobbleheads when you are on vacation, in flea markets, garage sales, etc.
Make connections with other bobblehead collectors. You may be gifted the same bobblehead twice and want to make a trade online. The most important thing is to have fun! This is a great activity to take on that can provide lots of entertainment and enjoyment for you, your family, and your friends!
