Iowa Hawkeyes Pink Locker Room Bobblehead Unveiled
MILWAUKEE, Wi., August 15, 2018 – – This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled an officially licensed, limited edition bobblehead of Iowa’s mascot Herky sitting on top of a pink locker with an Iowa helmet and football inside the locker.
The individually numbered bobbleheads were produced exclusively for the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by FOCO and can only be purchased in the Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store. The bobbleheads are $40 each with a flat rate shipping cost of $8 per order. The bobbleheads just arrived and are in stock now.
Legend has it that former Iowa football coach Hayden Fry, who earned a Master's degree in psychology, read that pink can have a calming effect on a person. When he started coaching at Iowa in 1979, he had the walls in the visiting locker room painted pink, and the toilets and lockers were painted pink during updates to Kinnick Stadium in 2005. This is the first time that the pink lockers have been incorporated into a bobblehead.
"We love coming out with unique bobbleheads, and this is certainly one of the more unique bobbleheads that we’ve released,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “The passion for Iowa football is tremendous, and we know this will be a cherished collectible for generations of Hawkeyes fans including my family. I wouldn’t be here if my parents hadn’t met while attending the University of Iowa!”
