It’s a bipartisan affair (so far) at the new Kickstarter campaign just launched at the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum featuring the five leading candidates for president.
The Kickstarter page also lets you kick in some of your hard-earned cash to support a political bobblehead of the Democratic Donkey and the Republican Elephant, as well as the first ever BobbleFlag.
Want a Donald Trump bobblehead with life-like hair? He’s right here, along with Hillary Clinton as well as the first-ever bobbleheads of Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
The Kickstarter campaign, which gives the public a chance to cast a vote of support by choosing their favorite candidate, runs from January 28th through February 29th with a goal of raising $10,000. Contributors receive the bobblehead(s) of their choice, which are expected to arrive in April. The Kickstarter will also serve as a straw poll to see which candidates’ bobblehead is the most popular.
“The Kickstarter ends the night before Super Tuesday, so we will see if America’s bobblehead choices signal the results of Super Tuesday,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “These candidates are such interesting characters, making bobbleheads a fitting way for people to show their support and commemorate this historical election period.”
Sklar says undecided voters can choose the Elephant or Donkey as alternatives to the candidate bobbleheads. Independent voters and other patriotic Americans will appreciate the first ever BobbleFlag.
A cursory glance of the Kickstarter page finds a half dozen backers so far, and a few hundred dollars raised, with both Republican and Democratic supporters. Looks like both Red and Blue Americans love Bobbleheads – at least one thing we can all agree on in these polarized times.
