Ms Obama Criticizes Ty

FIRST LADY Michelle Obama, who has described herself “first and foremost . . . Malia and Sasha’s mom,” has criticised a company that has made Beanie Babies dolls called after her daughers. The dolls are called Sweet Sasha and Marvelous Malia.

“We feel it is inappropriate to use young, private citizens for marketing purposes,” Ms Obama’s press secretary, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, said in a statement on Saturday.

Ty recently released the 12-inch dolls in their collection called TyGirlz. The dolls have soft brown skin and big eyes. Ty’s website shows Sweet Sasha wearing two pigtails and a pink and white dress, with Marvelous Malia doll wearing her hair to the right side and a blue-green shirt.
