Here’s a story about them from the NY Times in February 2009. The discontinued Marvelous Malia and Sweet Sasha dolls. A spokeswoman for the first lady Michelle Obama had protested that the dolls were inappropriately using young, private citizens for marketing purposes, even though the company, Ty Inc. Insisted that the dolls were not intended to depict the Obama girls, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7. Still, the brown-skinned, brown-eyed dolls, which were introduced in January, bore a passing resemblance to the first daughters. On Tuesday, the companys Web site included pictures of the two dolls beneath a red sign that read Retired. A spokeswoman for Ty Inc. Tania Lundeen, did not return several calls for comment.
