TORONTO – Second edition Rob Ford bobble heads go on sale today at Toronto city hall.
A spokesman for the Toronto mayor says the new $20 “Robbie Bobbies” will feature a different wardrobe from Ford bobble heads that sold out in a matter of hours last month.
Amin Massoudi says the 1,000 second edition dolls are to go on sale at noon in the city hall rotunda with a strict limit of one per customer.
Before November’s sale, people seeking to get their hands on the precious novelty item began arriving at 5 a.m., and the line snaked around the inside of city hall.
The sale of the 1,000 first edition Robbie Bobbies generated more than $12,000 for the United Way Toronto, and proceeds from the second edition are to go to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Ford, who has admitted having smoked crack cocaine, was stripped of much of his mayoral power last month.
