TRACY, Calif. — A California-based company is thanking first responders and other essential workers with a line of bobbleheads featuring firefighters, police officers, healthcare workers and other front-line workers.

The Essential Worker Bobbleheads, created by Kloanz Inc., have “Thank You” engraved on their platforms, depict each worker in uniform and PPE and can be sent as a gift with a personalized thank you note, according to a press release.

Each bobblehead costs about $25, and $5 from each item sold will go toward the charity Direct Relief to purchase PPE for essential workers.

“We wanted to create some type of award we could give to our Essential Workers as a way to show our appreciation and gratitude for the hard work they have been putting in through the pandemic,” said Kloanz Vice President of Sales and Marketing Mark Scroggie. “We wanted to have a message of positivity and to put a smile on the face of those who are going through stressful times.”
