Funko, or FunKo, is a company that manufactures licensed pop culture toys. Funko is most known for producing over 1000 different licensed vinyl figures. In addition Funko produces licensed plush, bobbleheads, action figures, and licensed electronic items such as USB drives, lamps and headphones.
Founded in 1998 by Mike Becker, the company was originally conceived by Becker as a small project to bring back various low-tech, nostalgia-themed toys in the high-tech world of today. Funko's first manufactured bobblehead was of the restaurant advertising icon Big Boy.
