|Q: What is the minimum order?
The minimum order is only 250 pieces per bobblehead design. Sorry, we cannot make a quantity of less than 250 pieces.
Q: How long does it take to make a bobble?
A rule of thumb is 90-120 days depending on the level of complexity. In some cases we must start with an artistic sketch of the proposed bobble (one week), other times we’re able to work from your photographs. Once the pose is determined, we make a mold of your bobble (7-14 days). Upon completion of the mold, we send you a sample for final approval (1 week). After you approve your sample, we begin production. Depending on the quantity ordered and detail involved, production and delivery to your destination is approximately 60 days (includes production time and ocean freight) from sample approval.

Most of the bobbles we make are 7″ -7.5″ tall. We can make 4″ bobbles; bobble key-chains, double bobbles and other resin products. Please contact us for a price quote.
Q: What materials are the bobbles made of ?
Our bobbles are made of polyresin. Each design is handcrafted and hand-painted. A 7.5″ bobble will weigh as much as 1 lb each. These are collectible pieces of art, not a plastic toy.
Q: How much do they cost?
Pricing depends on quantity purchased, size and complexity of the bobble design. A 7.5″ bobble can cost as little as $3.50 each (10,000 pieces) and as much as $10.00 each (250 pieces). For a current price list of our custom bobbles, please click here.
