It seems that Ty Inc. of 'Beanie Baby' and 'Ty Girlz' fame had put into production a pair of dolls named Sasha and Malia, which just happen to be the names of the first daughters.
Needless to say the first lady was none too impressed and objected to the company that naming the dolls after her children was innapropriate. Ty subsequently released a statement claiming that the dolls were not modelled on the Obama girls and have now renamed them Mariah and Sydney.
All profits from the sale of the originally named dolls will be donated to charity, so it's not all bad :)
