The Bobblehead Guy

Greetings From Iowa | Episode
May 3, 2017 | 7 min

Bryan Guise has been handcrafting custom bobbleheads in his hometown of Des Moines since 2002. Business skyrocketed when his creations showed up on network television, but he became overwhelmed and his company came crashing down. Now, stationed in a studio above his parents’ garage, Guise is back doing “the only thing in the world he knows how to do.” Join Guise as he runs around Des Moines delivering bobbleheads and humanity to some of the most notable figures in town, including Governor Terry E. Branstad, Mayor Frank Cownie, Jay Byers of the Greater Des Moines Partnership, Larry Cleverley of Cleverley Farms, Bishop Richard Pates, Rabbi Yossi Jacobson, Rep. Ako Abdul-Samad, Sen. Tony Bisignano and Sen. Janet Petersen.
