Barack Obama may be one of the most idolized political figures in recent memory. Literally.
Toy figurines in all shapes and sizes are popping up everywhere. Some toys depict the president as an action hero a la Jack Bauer. Others give him a more artsy treatment. There’s even the Sock Obama and Sock TheBiden, for those who are fans of the classic sock monkey.
Last week Michelle Obama expressed anger over likenesses of her daughters, Malia and Sasha, being turned into Beanie Babies. It seems, as the president has said throughout his campaign, his children may be off-limits, but he’s not.
