Go Bobble Yourself

No, this is not another post about the ValleyCats Bobblehead contest. Can anybody say, “Jump the shark?”

Instead let’s have a look at getting your own bobble made. Clifton Park blogger Roz Tofinchio, AKA “Crabby Old Roz,”was kind enough to provide us with an artists rendering of me as a bobblehead, holding a “personal massager” from the Solutions catalog. That’s is a deeply, deeply disturbing image. Don’t look at it for too long; it may burn your eyeballs out.

Anyway, there are lots of companies that can make you or a loved one into a bobblehead. The way it works is you send them a picture and and they do their bobble magic, which you can see here on this page at Bobbleheads.com.

You must be saying, “Rob, that’s gotta cost a fortune!” Nope. You can get a custom bobblehead made for under $80 if you use a stock body — more if you want the whole thing customized or want to do a couple bobble instead of an individual.

Why would you want to do this? Imagine what a great Father’s Day gift this would be — or you could give mom a bobble of you to keep on her desk at work. Or I suppose if your favorite player in the ValleyCats contest strikes out, you could just make your own. But that would be a little weird. Almost as weird as voting a hundred times.

  1. To quote Mary Tyler Moore: “Ohhhh, Robbbbb!” I was inspired by Kevin Marshall’s “Rob Madeo is my hero because he got vibrators onto his blog” post, and you know it!

    Don’t worry, I’ll make a new one of you and work dog poop into it. 🙂

  2. Oh my. I looked at the picture before I read the post and it took me a moment to figure out what you were holding. I thought it was lipstick at first. That’s just disturbing.
