Bobble-Head Valentines

By February 18, 2020Tamlin's real life

Valentines Day is our anniversary.

5 years now. Been together 11 years.
So, what do you give a guy who has everything?

 “Bobble-Heads” of course !!!

I had these 10″ figures custom-made for us.
I was impressed with the examples on their website ( and actually found a Groupon for 1/2 price. (Normally I would have paid around $150 each and some other websites can go up to $2,000).

Here is how they are made:
1.) Send 2 pictures of each person. Front face and profile.
2.) Answer questionnaires about clothes and their color, body type and  position of hands.
They can hold props as well (sporting equipment, brief case, art supplies, doctor gowns, cheer leaders, and many more options).
3.) They carved the heads out of clay and had me “APPROVE” online.
4.) They painted the bodies with chosen colors and had me “APPROVE” again.
It’s a 3 month process but I’m very pleased with the likeness’/caricatures.

If you are interested, go to the website and see what can be done.

Every one is unique and hand-made.
They are true artists in my book.
