With all this talk about bobble heads and seeing your favorite celebrities turned into them the questions remain when, where, and why? 

When: The first bobble heads were created and produced back in the late 1700's and early 1800's. Some of the first references of bobble heads were documented in 1842 in a short composition titled "The Overcoat" by writer Nikolai Gogol

Where: The bobble heads we have come to know and maybe even love originated in Germany. However, even before that people have connected Ancient China's & Japan's string dolls to being the mother of the bobble heads created in Germany. 

Why: This style of dolls was made popular by the Prince of Wales, who had a special interest in Chinese decorations! A few hundred years later... it's clear the Prince wasn't the only one who loved these figurines.
