Funko Making Wobbling Fun
If you haven’t heard of them Funko is a company that make a large assortment of licensed pop culture items, there range includes vinyl figures, action figures, electronic goods and a very popular range called Bobbleheads.
The brainchild of Mike Becker who started the company in 1998, his initial idea was to create low tech toys in a market that was saturated with high spec gizmos of every type. Big Boy was their first foray in to Bobbleheads,
created as an advertising icon for a restaurant; it quickly became a huge success therefore inspiring the Whacky Bobblehead rage which is now synonymous with Funko.
In 2005 Funko was sold and under the new president Brian Mariotti, who is still at the helm today, Funko has gone from strength to strength, with their toy range expanding all the time, signing very significant licensing deals with some really big named brands such as Marvel, CBS , FOX, Warner Bro to name just a few.
One Funko item we immediately fell in love with is the MARILYN MONROE Wacky Wobbler Bobblehead which you can see below, we are sure will be looking at other Funko items in the future but for now this one is our favourite, and the one on the Razberry Juice office desks wish list for a while to come!!
Beautifully designed and standing at around 7” tall these are now considered on the rare list, but we just love them, because they look so cool.
