Who doesn’t love a good bobblehead? They’re often whimsical, sometimes silly and occasionally realistic enough to be creepy. If you’ve always wanted to create your own, but lack the materials to do so, then you should check out Bobbleshop. It’s a bobblehead-creating app that’ll keep you busy for hours and leave you in stitches.
The app launches with a basic bobble that you can name and modify. You can change the head, the hair, the eyes, the nose and more. There are clothes and accessories like glasses and necklaces. Almost everything on the bobble can be tweaked to your liking. If you have enough time, you can create a bobble that closely resembles your friends and family. And you don’t have to work on one at a time, you can create and store an entire collection.
When you’re done creating your bobble, you can share it with other people via email. If they own Bobbleshop, they can import the bobble’s “DNA” and play with it on their device. You can also tweet your bobble or post it to the gallery on Bobbleshop’s website.
If you enjoy bobbleheads or just like being silly, then Bobbleshop is worth a download. It’s a bit pricey at US$2.99, but the app has a lot of customizations. There are dozens of hair pieces, a dozen different glasses, several eyes and more. Once you start digging into the app, you’ll understand why Bobbleshop’s not a free app.
I tested Bobbleshop on the iPhone, but prefer the iPad version because it’s easier to manipulate the pieces on the larger screen. Bobbleshop is a universal app that’ll work on the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2/3 Wi-Fi, and iPad 2/3 Wi-Fi + 3G. It requires iOS 5.0 or later.
