We feel that Funko pops make excellent gifts. These can be gifted to children who have a love of the character. A younger child that loves dinosaurs may be gifted the baby dinosaur Funko pop from the TV show “Dinosaurs”. They also make the mom, Fran, the dad Earl, the sister Charlene, and the brother, Robbie.
Know a person that likes the movie “The Good Dinosaur”? Surprise them with the green dino Arlo. Someone who is into the Jurassic Park movies may love the dilophosaurus Funko pop with its frill out and mouth wide open. Or there is the choice of Blue from the movie too.
There is also Dino, the dinosaur from the Flintstones.
If your child collects Pop bobbleheads, it is an excellent thing for them to get into. They will become very proud of their collection, and it can help them to meet new friends. If your child is shy, this may be the way to get them to open up and talk about what they enjoy.
To go with the Funko pop bobbleheads, there are other things you can purchase. There are T-shirts of various characters, and keychains too. These make a great addition to a gift.
