Cute, Cuddly Take-Home Obama (and Hillary)

29 Aug

I know what you’re thinking–“Barack Obama is just so darn cute I wish that someone would make a plush cartoon-like doll out of him so I could take him home!”  Well, you’re in luck because someone out there heard you and did just that…and even made a stuffed Hillary, too.  Where can you get the little dickens?  At one of those of those “claw grab” vending machines near you (see picture below).

This particular claw grab machine was located at Ollies in Allentown.

This particular claw grab machine was located at Ollie's in Allentown. I drew a circle and arrows to point out the plush Democratic candidates.

For a mere 50 cents, you, too, can take home a plush rendition of the man who just may be the next President of the United States or of a former First Lady.  I was tempted to try to “grab ’em”, but I never win at those things.  And I’m wondering, where’s the McCain plush?  Isn’t he cute and cuddly enough?  Wouldn’t people want to use “the claw” to fish him out of the mess of stuffed animals?

Heres Obama flanked by two Hillarys.  Is it me or are Hillarys cheek reminiscent of a chipmunk?

And just think if my mom hadn’t abandoned me at the check-out counter on our afternoon shopping excursion, I might not have been idling around the front of the store for 15 minutes bored out of my mind.  Boy, was I glad I had my camera on hand!

However, the SugarLoaf Co. that owns this machine isn’t the first to pay tribute to Obama in plush form.  Hero Builders began crafting action figures of all sorts of political and pop culture celebrities, including the Obamakinz (see below).  You can order your Hillary and McCain plush, too!

So hop on over to Hero Builders or stop by one of your local claw machines to get a plush Presidential candidate today…so you can always have something to remember him or her by!  Oh, and win me one, too.  I think they’re hilarious.
