Rosie Bobblehead

SKU H4009
This Rosie the Riveter bobblehead is part of a collection of historic figures produced by Royal Bobbles. Created during WWII, Rosie represents the women who worked in the factories and shipyards, replacing the male workers who joined the military. She is a cultural symbol of the United States and is considered the original symbol of American feminism and women's economic power.

Over 6 million women from all races, including African American, Hispanic, White, and Asian got war jobs and worked side by side during these troubled times. Only 3 million new female workers entered the workforce during wartime and were expected to return to their everyday housework once the men returned. Some people were unsure if they should urge the women to keep acting as full-time mothers or support them getting jobs to support the country in this time of need, but being able to support the soldiers by making all different products made these women feel very accomplished and proud of their work.

This bobblehead shows Rosie in her iconic working clothes and a red bandana. She is shown holding her sleeve and flexing exactly as she does in all of her motivational posters. She is sitting on a box with the iconic words “We Can Do It” printed under in bright yellow. All Royal Bobbles bobbleheads are about 8” tall and are made from highest quality, heavyweight polyresin. Each bobblehead is hand painted, making each one unique. Each Royal Bobbles product comes with its own unique serial number on the bottom of the base to indicate authenticity.
