Introducing “Sweet Sasha” and “Marvelous Malia,” created by those fools who brought us Beanie Babies:
The company that made Beanie Babies a top toy craze is hoping for another winner with dolls named “Sweet Sasha” and “Marvelous Malia.” Now where have we heard those names before?
Ty Inc. has released the 12-inch plush dolls as part of the company’s “TyGirlz Collection,” introduced in 2007. The Sasha doll has pigtails and wears a white and pink dress with hearts. The Malia doll has a side ponytail and a long-sleeve shirt with capri pants.
The Oak Brook-based company chose the dolls’ names because “they are beautiful names,” not because of any resemblance to President Obama’s daughters, said spokeswoman Tania Lundeen. “There’s nothing on the dolls that refers to the Obama girls,” Lundeen said. “It would not be fair to say they are exact replications of these girls. They are not.”
This ish is taking thangs a little too far. Damn. People need to stop trying to profit off these folks – especially the girls. Not that this is high on Obama’s list of priorities these days, but perhaps he and Michelle should go ahead and put a stop to this.
