The dog doll was first manufactured in Germany in the 1970s. The bobblehead was affectionately known in German as the Wackeldackel or wobbling dachshund in English.

The dachshund bobblehead made a comeback in the late '90s after being featured in a German advertisement. The toy then sold 500,000 units in eight months.

"Keep an eye out for these four-legged passengers on the road! You never know when you might spot a hot dog in the back of a hot rod," Google said.
