TORONTO - Mayor Rob Ford is now a bobblehead.

Ford’s office will be selling the collectibles — dubbed the “Robbie Bobbie” — starting next week as a fundraiser for the City of Toronto’s United Way campaign.

The office bought 1,000 bobbleheads in Ford’s image before the crack controversy exploded on Halloween when Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair revealed investigators had obtained the video appearing to show the mayor smoking the drug.

Despite the ongoing media circus surrounding the Ford, the bobbleheads will be going on sale for $20 each starting Tuesday morning in the City Hall rotunda.

News of the “Robbie Bobbie” came out earlier this week at City Hall. Ford friends and foes alike on social media seemed to show interest in buying one, indicating it could be a fast seller.

The Toronto Sun got a sneak peek at Bobble Ford on Friday.

Tiny “Robbie” does resemble the life-sized Ford but it does appear to be slightly slimmer than the real-life mayor and has a bit more hair.

No word if the Rob Ford bobblehead has a brother.

Ford’s staff wouldn’t say if there are any plans for a “Dougie Bobbie” anytime soon.
