Michelle Obama NOT in Favor of New Beanie Babies Sasha and Malia
Ty Inc is not owning up to the fact that their new Beanie Babies introductions are indeed fashioned to represent the daughters of the President and Mrs. Obama.
However the similarities of the dolls to their namesakes is somewhat telling.
Even though it is true that the dolls, one appearing a bit larger than the other, both having brown skin and brown eyes and black hair, they are of course just dolls.
“It would not be fair to say they are exact replications of these girls,” Ms. Lundeen told The A.P.
However, Michelle Obama has responded to the introduction in a statement:
But the first lady, Michelle Obama, who has publicly described her role as “mom in chief,” apparently was not amused. “We feel it is inappropriate to use young, private citizens for marketing purposes,” Katie McCormick Lelyveld, Mrs. Obama’s press secretary, said in a statement on Saturday.
Interestingly, the dolls in this collection all seem to be named for famous people. I doubt that could be that much of a coincidence.
Other dolls in the TyGirlz Collection include Jammin’ Jenna, Happy Hillary, Precious Paris and Bubbly Britney.
