Sasha and Malia Dolls

Ty Inc., creators of Beanie Babies, has released two new dolls, "Sweet Sasha" and "Marvelous Malia," as part of the company's TyGirlz Collection.

The 12-inch dolls with bronze skin and "real doll hair," were introduced in early January and a limited supply has been shipped to retailers.

Real doll hair...huh?!?

The Sasha doll has pigtails and wears a white and pink dress with hearts. The Malia doll has a side ponytail and a long-sleeve shirt with capri pants.

A company spokeswoman says the dolls are not named after the first daughters, and insists the company chose the names because "they are beautiful names," not because of any resemblance to Malia and Sasha Obama.

Mmmm hmmmm.  And that Princess Di bear? Yeah, I bet that was just a coincidence, too.
