Get your head on straight and celebrate the best and bobbliest bobbleheads of 2015

The science of why we love bobbleheads isn't complex: They're figurines with oversized heads that wiggle and wobble to and fro -- and that is simply delightful. Dozens of these splendid mementos are given out at Major League ballparks every year, and once a year, on Jan. 7, we set aside time to celebrate the very best.

So, in honor of this year's National Bobblehead Day, we present the bobbliest, most delightful bobbleheads of 2015 -- and to get your own to remember the 2015 season, check out these bobbleheads from the MLB Shop.

Yasiel Puig's bobblehead inspires a very Yasiel Puig performance

July 30 was Puig bobblehead night at Dodger Stadium, and with a home run and 3 RBIs on the night, he gave a bobblehead-worthy performance

Yordano Ventura is his bobblehead

You know what's better than a Ventura bobblehead? The human Ventura pretending to be his own bobblehead.

Jordy Mercer is Lloyd Christmas

Apparently, some people think the Pirates shortstop looks quite like comedic actor Jim Carrey -- enough so to make a bobblehead of the two fused together. Honestly, it's pretty convincing.

ARNOLD

This might be the most muscles ever depicted in bobblehead form.

Marte Partay!

Can you deny the sheer joyfulness of this Starling Marte bobblehead? We cannot.

Moose goes over the railing

The bobblehead was created first and foremost to preserve great moments of baseball history. Mike Moustakas' diving, over-the-railing catch in the 2014 ALCS definitely counts. 

Wily Mo Pena bat flips in NPB

Do we feel bad about listing a non-MLB bobblehead in our 2015 bobblehead power rankings? Not when it's Wily Mo Pena bat flipping in the NPB. Not one bit.

600 Chris Denorfia bobbleheads

One Chris Denorfia bobblehead may not have made this list. 600 of them that showed up on one guy's doorstep? That's strength in numbers.

Giant Madison Bumgarner

A giant bobblehead for the Giants' ace? Nothing more fitting.

Human bobblehead Puig

We have to give it up to this Dodgers fan at Spring Training. He's a person! He's a bobblehead! He's all our dreams (and nightmares) come true!
