THE OBAMA GIRLS HAVE THEIR OWN DOLLS NOW!

THE TOY COMPANY: WE JUST RANDOMLY PICKED THOSE NAMES – NO CONNECTION TO THE FIRST KIDS!

The nation’s newest first daughters are named Malia and Sasha. And two of the newest members of the Beanie Babies family are named Malia and Sasha. Coincidence? The people that make the dolls say, actually, yes. Ty Incorporated has come out with dolls named “Sweet Sasha” and “Marvelous Malia” but insist the names don’t refer to Barack Obama’s daughters. A company spokeswoman says they chose the names for the members of the TyGirlz Collection because “they are beautiful names” not because they bear any resemblance to the Obama girls. Public figures have a legal right to control how their images are used and the Ty spokeswoman wouldn’t comment on whether the company’s lawyers have become involved with the dolls.
