The company that makes Beanie Babies Ty has launched two new dolls Marvelous Malia and Sweet Sasha for their TyGirlz Collection.
It sounds familiar as our nation's new first daughters Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, are both sweet and marvelous.
However the names do not refer to President Barack Obama's daughters, says Ty Inc. spokeswoman.
The Oak Brook-based company chose the names because they are beautiful names, not because of any resemblance to Malia and Sasha Obama, said spokeswoman Tania Lundeen, according to Associated Press.
There's nothing on the dolls that refers to the Obama girls. It would not be fair to say they are exact replications of these girls. They are not, she added.
