MILWAUKEE – This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled the 2024 Presidential Candidate Bobblehead Series featuring bobbleheads of incumbent President Joe Biden, former President Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Chris Christie. On Monday, January 15th, the race for the White House officially begins with the Iowa caucus and the presidential election will take place on Tuesday, November 5th, 2024. The bobbleheads are being produced by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
Standing on a red, white, and blue star-shaped base, each 2024 Presidential Candidate bobblehead is smiling and waving while standing behind a replica yard sign bearing their name. Each candidate’s name is also shown on the front of the base. Each bobblehead is individually numbered to 2,024 for the election year, and they are only available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store. The bobbleheads, which are expected to ship in May, are $30 each plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order. A complete set of six is available for $175.
The 2024 United States presidential election could be a case of déjà vu for voters. President Biden and former President Trump are both currently leading the polling for their respective party, which would set up a rematch of 2020. President Biden announced his intent to run for re-election in April, while the embattled former President Trump was among the first to declare his candidacy for the GOP nomination and is the current front-runner despite multiple legal woes.
Other primary election challengers who have also declared their candidacies for the nomination on the Republican ticket are Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Chris Christie among others. The presidential election will occur at the same time as elections to the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House. Several states will also hold gubernatorial and state legislative elections. Crime, education, immigration, gun control, healthcare, abortion access, LGBT rights, the state of the economy, and election integrity are expected to be leading campaign issues. The winner of the election is scheduled to be inaugurated on January 20th, 2025.
This election year will be especially relevant for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum with the 2024 Republican and Democratic National Conventions being held in Milwaukee and Chicago, respectively. The Republican National Convention in Milwaukee will be held July 15-18 while the Democratic National Convention will be held in Chicago August 19-22. The Hall of Fame and Museum will be hosting a special Presidential Bobblehead Exhibit this summer showcasing the history of political and presidential bobbleheads.
In 2020, the Hall of Fame and Museum released a Presidential Candidate Bobblehead Series featuring Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Kanye West, and Joe Jorgensen. In 2016, the Bobblehead Series featured Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. In 2022, the Hall of Fame and Museum released the first complete series of President Bobbleheads which feature every president on a base with a replica White House.
“We’re excited to unveil the 2024 Presidential Candidate Bobblehead Series,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “The historic 2024 presidential election is expected generate a lot of conversation leading up to the big day. What a better way to support your favorite candidate or follow along with the process than with a bobblehead!”
