A “Steward of the people” Theodore Roosevelt was our youngest president. A prolific reader and writer, he was instrumental in ensuring the construction of the Panama Canal. Domestically he added to the national forests in the west, reserved lands for public use, and also fostered great irrigation projects. Channeling conservationist Roosevelt, our Bobblehead Teddy is very much in agreement that those were high stakes achievements, and nods: “Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.”
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.
