NODDERS are figures whose heads (and sometimes hands ... and even tongues) are independently moving parts which are attached to wires and weights, so that they "bobble" or "nod" any time the figure is moved. Originally made from porcelain and bisque, they first appeared in Europe and China as far back as the 18th century. Today's nodders or "bobble heads" are made of plastic or papier mache and often represent cartoon characters or popular sports figures.

I'll bet you didnt know this: Those nodders in your photo, do you notice anything strange about them? They're Chinese, but they have blonde hair and blue eyes? The reason is that they were made in Germany in the early 20th c.
