Remember the days when a bobbling-headed dog graced the dashboard of Dad’s Chevrolet? Well those days are back with the second coming of the bobblehead craze, and this time it’s Xavier’s mascot whose head is on the spring.
The national alumni association created and is exclusively marketing the hand-painted D’Artagnan bobbleheads, which are made of polyresin and stand 7 1/2 inches tall.
“I thought it was something that we would be interested in providing alumni,” says Joe Ventura, executive director for the national alumni association. “I knew bobbleheads were very popular. I thought it would be a nice keepsake for our alumni. It’s a source of pride. It’s something that can be displayed at home or in the office.”
The bobbleheads can be purchased only through the alumni association at www.xavier.edu/bobblehead. They sell for $20, plus $7.50 for shipping and handling.
