Hundreds of people are snatching up bobblehead dolls of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, signed by the embattled politician himself.

Up to 300 people lined up at City Hall Tuesday to buy the "Robbie Bobbie" dolls for $20 each, with the proceeds going to charity. The line included both supporters and opponents of the mayor, who acknowledged last week that he smoked crack. Some came from out of town.

Ford showed up himself to sign some of the dolls and greet supporters. He has refused to step aside despite mounting pressure from both allies and critics.
