What Dashboard Decorations Do Drivers Keep in Their Cars?
By: Good2GoPublished: May 2, 2013
Is your car lacking in style? Maybe you want to add your own personal touch by throwing in a few flame decals, 22 in. chrome rims, and some sweet spoilers – because you want everyone to know you have a need for speed. But what about the inside? More specifically, what do you keep on your dashboard? Let’s see what kind of dashboard decorations drivers are adding to their cars to create the ultimate customized vehicle.
It’s time to show some national pride. Miniature dashboard flags are a great way to represent your country and personalize your interior. But who says you have to have just one flag on your dashboard? Add as many flags as you like to create your own personal United Nations on your dashboard.
A car decoration classic, the Hula Girl is perhaps the most popular dashboard decoration known to man. Her grass skirt and rhythmic hips are sure to put a smile on any drivers face. If you’re looking for a figurine a little less – ahem – distracting, there are plenty of online stores like Amazon or eBay offering dashboard figurines of Disney characters, Santa Claus, professional athletes and even former U.S. Presidents.
While we do not recommend super gluing your cat or dog to the dashboard, animal lovers and pet owners can flaunt their love for their furry friends with a dashboard-sized replica instead. Cute and fluffy, these furballs will give your car the adorable factor it deserves (and they don’t shed).
Mini cactus? You got it. Lucky bamboo? Yup. Banzai tree. Check. Whether you buy real or fake, adding a little green to your dashboard is a great way to brighten up the interior and increase oxygen levels because who doesn’t want fresh air in their car? Just remember, make sure your plant is safely secured while you’re cruising down the road. Want something a little cooler?

And last but not the least, the beloved bobblehead. Not as seductive as the Hula girl, but just as hypnotic. Bobbleheads are a dashboard staple with their oversized wobbly heads nodding up and down in agreement, or side to side in opposition. Usually associated with athletes, anyone from Spock to Albert Einstein can become a bobblehead. Even a wise-cracking know-it-all like MiniMo can become immortalized as a bobblehead.

No matter what dashboard ornament you decide to keep in your car, make sure it reflects your own personal style. Just remember, safety first. Check to see if your state has any windshield obstruction laws before securing items to your dashboard. And word on the street is, MiniMo prefers to be buckled up passenger side anyway.
