Free Bobblehead!

As avid readers of my blog will realise, I have a posting rate of once every 3 years so to celebrate….

I am giving away your very own bobblehead….of sorts.

Seeing Cristiano Ronaldo’s epic statue that was recently unveiled (you know, this one)

reminded me of my own experience.

Way back in 2007 when I did this, I came home and saw a groupon where you could get yourself made into a bobblehead. Whether through vanity or stupidity I thought it would be fun so ended up paying for one. I had to send photos to them and then they’d make the bobblehead from them.
These are the photos I sent:





This is what I received:

Maybe I’m being harsh but I’m pretty sure you’ll agree that it doesn’t look much like me. Not wanting to put it on show, it has been sitting in the lovely box it came in, hidden away in a cupboard for around 6 years.

I knew that it didn’t look like me but surely it has to look like someone, right? So here’s the deal….

Take a good look at the photos of the bobblehead. If you can nominate anyone that it looks like then send me a photo of them to or share it with me online at either or on twitter @hugsfromdad. I will take a look and then send it for FREE to the person who looks most like it. There’s no time limit but I don’t want to have to wait another 6 years. Maybe there is nobody in the world who it looks like and I’ll just send it to Ronaldo to add to his collection….

Hopefully someone can make use of it and the bobblhead can be given to its rightful heir.

So get sharing and get nominating.

Internet, do your thing!
