eBay, crazyville (The Weekly Vice) -- Just a few days ago, we alerted you to the recently released Caylee Sunshine Doll, which was characterized after murder victim Caylee Anthony. The product, offered by Showbiz Promotions, didn't receive a very good review here on the Vice. The exploitation of a victim for monetary gain seemed to be quite over the top to me.
That company has now since introduced a whole set of dolls, some of them donning baseball caps to cover up the Caylee Anthony styled haircut the doll was given.
But as they say, every coin has two sides, and this one apparently does as well.
Within the same week, another doll maker decided to cash in on the whole Casey Anthony murder case fiasco by introducing the Casey Anthony Voodoo Doll.
The dolls, created by an unnamed artist (under the eBay account mtmprofits2008), is offering the opportunity to stick -it to Casey with a starting auction bid of $29.99.
The artist claims to be a studied, practiced and renoun Spiritual Healer that apparently resides in New Orleans.
For those who have been in need of a pin cushion lately, the doll comes several ways. The product line includes a New Orleans Casey Anthony Ltd Edition Doll, a Mad Money Doll, and more recently a Flag Dress Doll.
At the time of this writing, two dolls were in auction and had zero bids.
We hope both products suffer the same success. Zero bids!
