Bobbleheads of Gov. Mike DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton honor their fight against coronavirus

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled two new figures – giving a nod to the work done by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton during the coronavirus pandemic.

The DeWine bobblehead figure, released last week along with three other governors, is depicted wearing a suit and standing at a podium giving a press briefing.

The bobblehead for Dr. Acton, director of the Ohio Department of Health, wears a white lab coat at a podium adorned with the state flag.

"Bobbleheads are the ultimate honor,” Phil Sklar, National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO, said in a release.

“After releasing the bobblehead of Governor DeWine, we received a lot of requests for a bobblehead of Dr. Acton, who has been instrumental in the continued fight against the coronavirus.”

The museum, which opened in Milwaukee in 2019, has also released bobbleheads of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Dr. Deborah Birx, response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force.

More than 32,000 Dr. Fauci bobbleheads have been sold since April 1 making it the museum’s best-selling bobblehead.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is donating $5 from every Gov. DeWine and Dr. Acton bobblehead sold to the Protect The Heroes fund in support of the 100 Million Mask Challenge.

The bobbleheads are available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum's online store. The cost is $25 each plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order. The bobbleheads will ship in July.
