After all the public outcry, Ty Inc. has relented and retired the Sasha and Malia dolls. The dolls have been renamed "Marvelous Mariah" and "Sweet Sydney" and the profits from the original dolls will go to charity. The company still insists the dolls were never intended to be representative of the Obamas but made the change out of respect for the First Family.
A spokeswoman for Mrs. Obama, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, said, "We appreciate the company’s response to this matter."
