The popularity of Bo, the White House's new
puppy, is complete: The company that produces Beanie Babies has recently
released a shaggy black and white version of the dog — and it is selling fast.
The company has previously run into trouble
taking inspiration from the Obama family - releasing two
dolls resembling the Obama children as part of its Ty Girlz collection
but retired the names "Marvelous Malia" and "Sweet Sasha" - when Michelle Obama said using her daughters' names was inappropriate.
The dolls were renamed "Marvelous Mariah" and "Sweet Sydney."
Less than a dozen "Bo" Beanie Babies were sent
to the educational toy shop Learning Express and they sold out quickly,
owner Aalap Shah said Wednesday.
"We were fortunate enough to receive a small
shipment of 'Bo,' " Shah said. "He sold out within a few hours. He was
very popular. We can't wait to get some more in."
Ty Inc. introduced the stuffed animal on April
16, two days after Bo the Portuguese Water Dog made his White House
debut in a photo session with President Obama, first lady Michelle
Obama and their daughters, 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha.
"We are very proud of the First Family and
wanted to join in celebrating their choice of a family pet," chief
executive officer Ty Warner said in a statement.
The "Bo" doll's suggested price is $4.99. It
auctioned Wednesday on eBay for between $5 and $139.95. Ty said the
company will donate a portion of its profits from the "Bo" doll to
local animal shelters.
