A noddin' porcine find that nods..bobs..and makes goo-goo eyes! Nodders were popular novelty decors in the 50s and 60s, and this is just one of those millions of kitschy figurines made from those flashy, funky decades. Most nodders were made especially for car dashboards, so that when the vehicle is in motion, the nodder sways. Nodders were made to represent every inconceivable figure known to man--from Hawaiian hula girls, baseball and rock star idols to animals such as hush dogs and--piggies! This example is notable for its flickr eyes, which also move as the head--attached separately to the body using a spring-- bobs at the slightest touch. Give this collectible a hog! Oink, oink!
