Obama's Girls get Tips From Bush Twins, Dolls Named After Them
Barack Obama's daughters Sasha and Malia got some advice from former president George W. Bush's twin daughters when their father became president on Tuesday. Like their father, the twins left a note to the Obama girls which told them what to expect in the coming years.
On an unrelated note (at least if you ask Try Inc.'s lawyers), the toy company who makes Beanie Babies is releasing a line of Sasha and Malia dolls, who bear a striking resemblance to Obama's daughters. But the company stresses the dolls are called that because they are 'beautiful names'.
Like their dad, who left a note for President Barack Obama, Jenna and Barbara Bush wrote Tuesday to Obama's daughters about what to expect in the weeks and months ahead.
"We also first saw the White House through the innocent, optimistic eyes of children," the twins wrote in an open letter published in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal.
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.
