Ty Inc., the company that makes Beanie Babies, has released a pair of new dolls named Sweet Sasha and Marvelous Malia, both with brown skin and brown eyes, according to the New York Times
The Obama girls are in good company: dolls in the TyGirlz Collection include Jammin' Jenna, Happy Hillary, Precious Paris and Bubbly Britney, according to the Times.
I am not sure where I stand on this. On one hand this manufacturer has every right to do this. I mean, it's not like the Obama's have hidden the girls away. For a while they were splashed on the cover of every magazine out there WITH their parents right next too them! On the other hand they are pretty young to be put out there this way. But Also if I was them I would think it was pretty cool to have a doll that looked like me!!
What do ya'll think......Do you think they should be yanked?
