Pillsbury Doughboy statue

Eight-foot tall fiberglass statue of Poppin’ Fresh, the Pillbury Doughboy, holding a clear plastic globe.  The statue sits on a blue wood base, and the globe is connected to an electric motor that allows it to spin when the unit is plugged in.  The statue was displayed in the lobby of Pillsbury’s Riverside Technology Center in Minneapolis in the late 1990s.

The statue, along with other local spokes-characters, appears in the Collections Up Close podcast “Beyond the Doughboy:  Minnesota Mascots.
