ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KFVS) - You can now buy a bobblehead of a St. Louis Blues superfan.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame announced it a pre-sale of the Laila Anderson bobbleheads.
Anderson is an 11-year-old St. Louis Blues superfan who has inspired many while fighting a rare life-threatening immune disease called Hemophagocytic lympohistiocytosis, or HLH. She’s reciveing treatment at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
“I’m really excited to be having my own bobblehead, especially since they support such a great cause! Thank you to the St. Louis Blues and to hockey fans everywhere for all the love and support," Laila said.
The bobblehead features Laila holding a replica of the sign that she held up during a recent playoff game as well as the bell that children at the Children’s Hospital ring when they finish their chemotherapy treatment.
"We’re excited to be working with Laila and her family to create this bobblehead for everyone who has been inspired by her story,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “This bobblehead is the perfect way to celebrate Laila and her inspirational personality, and we think it will put a smile on people’s faces every time they see it!”
You can pre-order the bobblehead now, and the company says they are expected to ship in October.
$5 from each bobblehead sold will be donated to the charity of Laila’s choice, the St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
