Cast Your Vote for the Next Bobblehead
What better way to predict the outcome of Super Tuesday than to poll Americans on which candidate they would most like to see in bobblehead form.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum launched a Kickstarter campaign on Thursday to determine which presidential candidate has the backing to become the next bobblehead. The Kickstarter campaign, which aims to raise $10,000 in pledges, will also fund the production of the figurines.
Only former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and business mogul Donald Trump have been captured in bobblehead form so far. “The presidential candidates are such characters, that we thought a broader selection was needed,” the museum staff wrote in a news release. Trump’s figure is made with hair-like material.
The Kickstarter includes Clinton and Trump, as well as Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas. There is also a donkey, elephant and the first ever “BobbleFlag,” a flag on a spring. Prototypes have been made for each which are visible when you vote .
Only the bobbleheads with the highest demand will be produced. The Kickstarter runs for a month, ending on Feb. 29, the day before Super Tuesday.
“We will see if America’s bobblehead choices signal the results of Super Tuesday,” said Phil Sklar, the museum’s co-founder and CEO.
