Washington, Oct. 10: The maker of the iconic Cabbage Patch Kids, a line of dolls, has created five one-of-a-kind dolls, modeled on presidential candidates, their running mates and the First Lady, that will be auctioned off through eBay for charity.
The bidding will start on October 30 and wraps up on Election Day at cpkauctionforcharity.com.
Doll maker Jakks Pacific has created pint-sized versions of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with a mini-Michelle Obama, who is fashionably dressed as usual in a belted pink dress and jacket.
According to the New York Daily News, on the Republican ticket, JAKKS has replicated Mitt Romney’s grey-streaked mane and running-mate Paul Ryan’s close-mouthed grin.
Proceeds from the auction will benefit Rock the Vote, a non-partisan group devoted to boosting participation by young people in elections.
In 2008, an auction of dolls modeled on that year’s White House contenders raised more than 35,000 dollars.
The top money-maker was VP candidate Sarah Palin’s doll doppelg„nger. The Palin Cabbage Patch Doll went for a whopping 19,000 dollars, while a significantly less grey Obama was auctioned off for 8,400 dollars, the report added. (ANI)
