Those dolls sure look a lot like the Obama girls

Toy company: Marvelous Malia and Sweet Sasha aren't inspired by Obama kids

Ty Inc., the Westmont, Ill.-based toy company, has released a new line of dolls resembling the First Daughters, but denies the girls were the inspiration. “Marvelous Malia” and “Sweet Sasha,” which retail for US$9.99, is considered by some to be the first attempt to cash in on the celebrity of the girls and has prompted many to speak out against what seems to be the commercialization of Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7.
