Bobblehead dolls originated in ancient China. Over centuries their evolution has been influenced by different cultures and fashions of the day. In the United States, bobblehead dolls gained popularity in the 1920s with the introduction of a New York Knicks baseball player collectors item. Advances in construction techniques and materials and the use of plastic instead of ceramic and other fragile substances has meant that current day bobbleheads may be mass produced as a durable collectible item.
