First Beanie Babies?
Are Malia and Sasha Obama Beanie Babies? Unfortunately for First Lady Michelle Obama, that is indeed true.
Sure, Ty, Inc., the makers of Beanie Babies, may have a potential doll hit on their hand but it's a big miss when it comes down to Mom-in-Charge, Michelle Obama. The toy makers recently introduced two new dolls: Marvelous Malia and Sweet Sasha.
Both resemble our nation's First Children in the White House. Well, Mrs. Michelle Obama was not too pleased.
In a statement, Mrs. Obama's press secretary, Katie McCormick Lelweld stated, "We feel it is inappropriate to use young, private citizens for marketing purposes."
Ty has done it before: the TyGirlz Collection also includes Jammin' Jenna, Happy Hillary, Precious Paris and Bubbly Britney.
