Many will agree that this lovely doll exudes grace and style while adequately capturing First Lady Obama's likeness. They will also stand in agreement that the authentically styled wig and Official White House Portrait ensemble (black sheath, double-stranded faux pearl necklace, earrings, watch, and black pumps) embody First Lady Obama's elegant style. (All accessories are removable.)
Available in a worldwide limited edition of 9000, with the first dolls scheduled to arrive in late November 2010, the doll retails for $195 plus $16.95 shipping and applicable taxes. A choice of three monthly installments of $65 plus shipping and applicable taxes is available. Ordering has commenced at the Franklin Mint website.
