The Gettysburg Museum in Pennsylvania has yanked bobbleheads of John Wilkes Booth from it’s gift shop after just one week. While visitors complained that they were “tasteless”, the creator of the dolls said they weren’t designed to glorify Booth or make light of Lincoln’s assassination. He added that it’s hard to get young people interested in history and by making an interactive figure, it becomes more accesible to them.
- The designer added, “You should see the Lee Harvey Oswald doll I made for the museum in Dallas! It even comes with a mini-grassy knoll!”
