Q: Do you allow refunds or cancellations for custom bobbleheads?

Sculpting, especially when the subject is a human, is a very subjective process. It is an art, not science. Since all the sculpting is done based on photographs (which may or may not be good reproduction of the subject), the quality of the photo provided is very important in achieving a good result. But even with a good photo, because of the subjectivity involved with the art of sculpting, some people may see a strong resemblance with the person, while others may not. With a good photo however, we should be able to obtain a good resemblance with our specially-trained artists.
Q: Can I make a bobblehead of a celebrity or professional athlete?
A: We are unable to create a custom bobblehead of a celebrity or a professional athlete without their permission. If you are able to verify the relationship and obtain permission, we will provide an authorization form.
If this will not work for you, we can create a custom bobblehead of a celebrity or professional athlete’s body (same clothing, pose, body type, etc.) with a custom head of a friend, coworker, spouse, yourself, etc.
