Where can I buy a Progressive Flo Bobblehead?

Updated on October 2, 2015

I want a flo Bobblehead.

As I watched the Super Bowl one commercial caught my eye. Wow, surely that wasn't a Progressive insurance commercial without Flo? No way - hang on - there she is - OK so it's not a full size Flo but instead it's a Flo Bobblehead! (see the full 'Skinny Jeans' commercial below)

Wow - now that is cool - and I want one now!!! Somehow the idea of having Flo bobbing up and down on my dashboard is comforting - not that it makes me any safer, but she is sooooo cool!

So I began to scour the internet looking for one and was shocked to see that there aren't any of the major retailers selling it - luckily for me I love eBay and through some careful searching I was able to find one! OK so they are a little expensive - but it is Flo after all!

So where can I find a Progressive Flo Bobblehead?

These special Bobble-Heads are hard to come buy at the moment; you can enter a competition to win one, but aside from that they are pretty scarse. My guess is that once the initial buzz surrounding them has gone, you'll being to see sites like Amazon and Target selling them, until then you'll only be able to get one on eBay!

I have no connection to the sales on eBay so I have no way to know if these are legitimate bobbleheads or scams - to be honest, unless the eBayer selling them doesn't have a decent eBay seller score I wouldn't buy from them - so you have been warned!

Why is Progressive Flo so popular?

There's an indefinable quality about Progressive Flo. Whether it's a combination of the sweet next door neighbor, or the prim and proper 50s lady, you simply find yourself trusting everything she says.

She is simply 'nice' and it's this endearing quality that appeals to many in the age of texting, twitter and Fadcebook that probably sets her aside from other icons of advertising!

Should I buy a Progressive Flo Bobblehead as an investment?

Probably not, there are quite a few bobbleheads available already and there's not much chance that it will gain any value over the next ten years - however if you keep it in the box and never use it, it could be worth something in the next 100 years especially if you manage to buy it cheaply!

      For you Flo haters! There's a "I can't stand Flo" the Progressive Ins lady site on facebook. I wish I could find a bobblehead for a certain someone I know that can't stand her.

      Everytime my 1yr old even hears a commercial with Flo on it she has to run over, stare locked on the tv and just starts dancing. She would love a Flo!
