These Neglected Presidents Are Getting the Bobblehead Treatment They so Richly Deserve
Growing up, most of us probably had that one dreaded school assignment where we had to recite all the U.S. presidents in order. It's easy at the start: there’s Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Adams, and Jackson. After that, it could get a little murky until Abraham Lincoln comes along at number 16. Even then, you'd be forgiven for forgetting Rutherford B. Hayes and Benjamin Harrison at numbers 19 and 23, respectively.
Now, some of these oft-forgotten Commanders-in-Chief are getting the spotlight as part of the Neglected Presidents bobblehead line from the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame. This set of 18 figurines is dedicated solely to presidents who have rarely, if ever, been cast in bobblehead form before (this is the day you've been waiting for, John Tyler fans).
Among these bobbleheads is Chester A. Arthur, who once held a White House yard sale that included a pair of Lincoln's pants; Zachary Taylor, an expert at spitting chewing tobacco; and Calvin Coolidge, a POTUS so reserved, he gained the nickname "Silent Cal" because you could barely get a peep out of him.
