Events | Home Alone and Cheese Pizza: The Perfect Holiday Combo!
Every Home Alone fan knows how important a “lovely cheese pizza” is to the film’s hero, Kevin McCallister. And this year, the Bobblehead Hall of Fame is delivering the ultimate Home Alone experience to movie fans in the Chicago area and all those planning a future visit.
From now through December 31, 2017, everyone who purchases the Limited Edition Home Alone Bobblehead Set featuring Kevin (played by Macaulay Culkin), Harry (played by Joe Pesci) and Marv (played by Daniel Stern) from the National Bobblehead HOF Online Store will also receive a Lou Malnati’s gift card with the value of a small thin rust cheese pizza loaded onto it. The gift cards never expire, giving Home Alone fans across the planet another great reason to visit Chicago, where they can also see several Home Alone filming locations.
This offer is available exclusively in the National Bobblehead HOF Online Store, where the Limited Edition bobbleheads are available for $20 each, or $55 for the set of three, plus a flat rate shipping cost of $8 per order. Every purchase of the three-bobblehead set through December 31 will qualify for Lou Malnati’s gift card offer when customers enter the code PIZZA in the notes field. The bobbleheads were produced by NECA exclusively for the National Bobblehead HOF and are officially licensed by 20th Century Fox. Only 5,000 of the Kevin and 3,000 of the Harry and Marv bobbleheads were produced in the limited-edition series.
“We’re thrilled to be offering this great package that combines bobbleheads from the best movie ever with the best pizza on earth.” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “Whether you’re looking for a gift for a loved one who is a Home Alone fan or you’re a Home Alone fan yourself, this package can’t be beat!”
Home Alone and Home Alone 2 have become iconic movies, and cheese pizza played a role in both. In Home Alone, when Kevin’s family only ordered one cheese pizza for the family on the eve of their trip to Paris, Kevin charged into his older brother, Buzz, who ate the pizza before Kevin could get any. After his family forgot him, Kevin ordered a “lovely cheese pizza” just for himself, telling the delivery driver from the fictional Little Nero’s Pizza, “keep the change, you filthy animal” after giving a $0.20 tip. In Home Alone 2, Kevin enjoyed a cheese pizza during his limo tour of the New York City.
The National Bobblehead HOF Online Store has also just issued the first bobble-tarantula, which can be bought separately or added to any order for just $20.
