MILWAUKEE – This morning, to celebrate Presidents’ Day, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled the first complete series of United States President bobbleheads. The series includes each United States President on a base that features a replica of the White House, and each bobblehead is individually numbered to the year that the president was elected. The bobbleheads are being produced by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
The collection includes every United States President: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James K.

The bobbleheads are only available through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store. The bobbleheads are $30 each plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order or $1,250 for the complete set. The Joe Biden and Donald Trump bobbleheads are in stock now while the others are expected to ship in May. All bobbleheads include the name of the president on the front of the base and their president number on the back of the base.
The President of the United States acts as the head of the Executive Branch of the government, as well as Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces. The President is responsible for carrying out the laws written by Congress and appointing the heads of the federal agencies. The Constitution lists only three qualifications for the Presidency — they must be at least 35 years of age, be a natural-born citizen, and must have lived in the United States for at least 14 years. The President of the United States is one of the most powerful people in the world, with awesome privileges and responsibilities.
Located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., the White House is the official residence and workplace of the President of the United States. Construction took place between 1792 and 1800 using Aquia Creek sandstone painted white. It has been the residence of every U.S. president since John Adams in 1800. The residence was designed by Irish-born architect James Hoban in the neoclassical style. He modeled the building after the Leinster House in Dublin, a building which today houses the Oireachtas, the Irish legislature. The modern-day White House complex includes the Executive Residence, West Wing, East Wing, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (the former State Department, which now houses offices for the president’s staff and the vice president) and Blair House, a guest residence. In 2007, the White House was ranked second on the American Institute of Architects list of “America’s Favorite Architecture.”
“We’re excited to release this complete collection of bobbleheads featuring all 45 U.S. Presidents to celebrate Presidents’ Day,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “Each president played an important part in our country’s history, and we think people will enjoy this new series of presidential bobbleheads.”
