Caylee Antony Doll For Sale

by James Denison / January 29, 2009 5:48 AM PST

There are some things that just give you that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach. Making money off the death of a child is one of them. Will they tell each child the story behind it?

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Jacksonville promotions company said Tuesday it was suspending the sale of a blonde-haired doll bearing the name of slain Central Florida toddler Caylee Anthony. The company calls the doll a "tribute" to the girl (see the doll).

SEE THE DOLL: Images Of "Caylee Sunshine"

Showbiz Promotions was selling its Caylee Sunshine doll, which is named for Caylee Anthony, for $29.99. The doll sings the song, "You Are My Sunshine," a song Caylee is shown on home video singing.

"The Caylee Sunshine Doll is a symbol of "every child" in this world," the company promotes on their Web site. "Let us hold onto this doll to remind us that Caylee is safe in Heaven embraced in loving arms forever!"

In very poor taste

And so they say some or all of the money would go to charity but didn't say which one. How generous...collecting other people's money to give away. Sounds like our government. If somebody want's to memorialize this child or others who've suffered abuse and death by predictors, there are plenty of organizations who'd gladly take sincere but private donations and do good with them. Charity work doesn't require gathering and audience to watch it being done.

I agree, it is sad, but I have to ask...
by grimgraphix / January 29, 2009 11:29 AM PST

... what is the difference between cashing in by selling a doll... and the press coverage by the ambulance chasing Nancy Grace who sits in almost orgasmic delight as she presides over CNN's coverage of the case?

The actions of both parties disturb me greatly. I have sent an email to cnn not too long ago stating my opinions in this matter as far as Ms Grace, but of course, all I got back was a form letter.
