Bobble Heads & Vinyl Figures


The Bobblehead Makes a Perfect Gift

If you need to buy a present for someone that’s hard to buy for, look no further than the bobblehead. Bobbleheads are statues where the heads are connected to the body with a spring, meaning the heads can nod. They became popular in the 1960s, and today, you can find a huge selection ready to take home.

No matter who you have to buy for, there will be a bobblehead that suits their obsession, whether that’s zombies, Duck Dynasty or old Western movies. Are they politically minded? There are bobbleheads of many U.S. presidents, including Abraham Lincoln and Donald Trump, as well as Canada’s own head of state, Queen Elizabeth II. Science lovers may appreciate having Albert Einstein sitting on their desks. Bob Ross and Mark Twain might suit the more creative types.

A New Collector’s Item

Over the years, bobbleheads have become collector’s items. Many companies have released limited editions, and older statues have become rare and valuable mementos. Just recently the Pope Francis bobblehead became so popular that shortages were reported. There is even a Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, located in Milwaukee, and a National Bobblehead Day on Jan. 7. Although most people see bobbleheads as a bit of fun, for many, they’re serious collectibles and a little piece of history that shows what’s important and popular in the year that they’re made.

Superhero Bobbleheads

Some of the most popular bobbleheads depict the heroes of television and movies. Walmart Canada’s collection includes the superheroes and villains of popular movies and comic books. Popular brand Funko makes bobbleheads of Marvel favourites like Deadpool and Rocket Racoon and DC characters like Robin and anti-hero Harley Quinn.

It’s not just comic book heroes immortalized in bobbleheads. Science-fiction and fantasy characters are also represented. Star Wars fans can find bobbleheads from movies old and new. If you prefer boldly going where no man has gone before, you can add a Starship Enterprise to your desktop monitor.

Your Favourite Sports Heroes

People who are interested in sport more than comic books and movies can also find something to spark their interest in the bobblehead range. Players from the Chicago Blackhawks are represented for those with hockey interests, and the NFL figures include players from the Packers, Dolphins and Rams. Basketball fans will love figures of legends like Michael Jordan, and there’s something there for the baseball fans as well.

If you’re looking for something for a wrestling fan, there’s a large variety of figures from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). All the popular wrestlers and divas can be found in the Funko Minis range, and there’s no way to know what you’re getting until you open them, which just adds to the fun.

Popular Culture

Bobbleheads have reached into every area of popular culture and in Walmart Canada’s wide range, there’s sure to be something to delight even the most discerning friend. Television series that now have bobbleheads include The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory and Saturday Night Live. Video game characters and musical artists are also depicted. You can even make your own custom bobbleheads by adding photos to race car drivers, cheerleaders and other figures.

No matter what your interest or obsession is there’s sure to be a bobblehead you’re proud to have on your desk.
