Mini D

My FIL's birthday was last month, but one of his presents didn't come in the mail until the day after his birthday. Sunday night was the first time we were all able to get together to give it to him. Dennis is very hard to buy for. Very. We racked our brains until I saw Whoopass Enterprises' website and knew that any business with Whoopass in the name couldn't steer us wrong! And even though Chief Justice D has everything, we knew he didn't have a bobbling mini D. So over the course of the holidays I took a ton of pictures of D from every angle, uploaded the best ones on the order form, and a few weeks later mini D arrives at our doorstep. I couldn't be more pleased with how much the bobble resembles D. Right down to the mole on his cheek. They did take some liberties with the size of his bald spot on the back, but they gave him more hair than he has so all was forgiven.

He opened up the box, gasped (hand to mouth), and was delighted the rest of the night. One of the fun add ons I ordered with the bobble is a little recorder that is hidden under the base. So he thought of all sorts of things to record. Then when anyone touches the bobble head it talks to them. Very cute! D said that it's very bizarre to open a box and see yourself staring back at you, but he couldn't wait to take himself to work the next day!

My husband and I had seen these online and were considering ordering these as gifts for our bridal party... but were worried about the quality. Good to know that your gift turned out so fabulously!

That is HYSTERICAL ... glad he liked his gift! Definitely a present for someone who is hard to buy for or who has everything!

I've thought about doing that for Mark before - maybe I will...

That is too funny! I ordered one for Niel for Xmas. His was not as close to his appearance.
