hat tip-Michelle Obama Watch
For those of you who were thinking about buying the $150 Michelle Obama Doll from the Danbury Mint, think twice about it. Seems like there is some false advertising going on.

The Excitement Has Fizzled…
…actually it fizzled a couple of days ago upon hearing disappointing reviews for Danbury Mint’s Michelle Obama Inaugural Doll. My doll arrived today. While her appearance is not as dreadful as I had imagined, I am not happy enough with her or with the quality of her cheesecloth-like dress to keep her. Before returning the doll, I took several photographs. A side-by-side image of Danbury Mint’s ad image with that of the actual doll is offered for comparison.
