MILLWAUKEE — Now you can get Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker to agree with you simply by shaking the table.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum on Thursday unveiled a bobblehead doll of Baker, calling it the first-ever doll of its kind based on the state’s 72nd governor.
The museum said it will donate $5 from every Baker bobblehead sold — the price is $25 — to the Protect The Heroes fund in support of the 100 Million Mask Challenge.
The museum said that since early April, sales of bobbleheads featuring Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx, Dr. Amy Acton, interpreters Marla Berkowitz and Virginia Moore, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and 35 different “Essential Heroes” have raised $275,000 and counting for the Protect the Heroes fund to provide PPE to the nation’s healthcare workers.
The Baker bobblehead joins dolls of California Governor Gavin Newsom, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and a number of others that were previously released.
The museum on Thursday also unveiled bobbleheads of Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, and Minnesota Governor Tim Walz.
“During these unprecedented times, we want to continue to raise funds for an amazing cause while putting a smile on people’s faces with bobbleheads,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “We received a lot of requests to make a bobblehead of Governor Baker and other governors who have been instrumental in the continued fight against COVID-19, so we’re excited to be releasing his bobblehead today.”
The Hall of Fame bills itself as a one-of-a-kind museum with the world’s largest collection of bobbleheads from all genres and periods.
Baker routinely polls as one of the country’s most popular governors.
