Dolls Were Forced To Rename

A US toy company is renaming its Malia and Sasha dolls after a complaint by First Lady Michelle Obama.


The dolls, originally called Marvelous Malia and Sweet Sasha, will be named 'Marvelous Mariah' and 'Sweet Sydney'.


Dollmaker Ty Inc says it changed the names after Mrs Obama said that using her daughters' names was inappropriate.


It had said the dolls were not modelled on the Obama girls, but the names suited dolls they were already making."We appreciate the company's response to this matter," said Mrs Obama's press secretary, Katie McCormick Lelyveld.


Barack and Michelle Obama have two daughters: Malia Ann was born in 1998 and Sasha was born in 2001. Sasha is the youngest child to reside in the White House since. Malia and Sasha attend the private Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, the same school as attended by Chelsea Clinton, Tricia Nixon Cox, and Archibald Roosevelt.


The dolls were part of the Ty Girlz Collection, and went on sale in January, joining others in the same range called Bubbly Britney, Lucky Lindsay and Precious Paris.
