The Franklin Mint, the industry leader in collectible doll craftsmanship, releases The Michelle Obama Official White House Portrait Doll, one of the first of its kind in the world, capturing all the style and substance of our iconic First Lady.

Our Michelle Obama Official White House Portrait Doll, one of the first of its kind in the world, captures all the style and substance of our iconic First Lady.

When our design team saw Michelle’s official White House portrait, it was unanimous. We all felt it was the most radiant First Lady photograph ever taken, and that her outfit really spoke to her individual style.

The award winning doll makers of The Franklin Mint have made history once again with the worldwide release of the Michelle Obama Official First Lady Portrait Doll – a stunningly lifelike replication, with a Limited Edition of just 9,900.

“Michelle has become one of most celebrated women of our time and she is such an incredible role model to girls and women around the world. We felt it our duty to honor her in the most unique way possible,” states Gwynne Gorr Vice President of Product Development. “She has such a glorious sense of her own personal style and she looks so amazing in everything she wears…truthfully, the most difficult task was deciding which outfit to replicate!”

A unique style indeed – through her bold and youthful fashion choices, mixing high-end labels with more accessible, off-the-rack clothing, Michelle has not only connected to the American public in very real way, but it seems she has singlehandedly revived American chic. “When our design team saw Michelle’s official White House portrait, it was unanimous. We all felt it was the most radiant First Lady photograph ever taken, and that her outfit really spoke to her individual style. Then… we went to work.” The doll makers spent the early part of 2010 researching, retooling, and redesigning, until they were wholly satisfied with the result – an exquisite collector doll with an uncanny resemblance to our historic First Lady, wearing her American designed, White House portrait ensemble. “I’m thrilled to report…we aimed for perfection and we got it right.” Gorr adds.

With the 2010 holiday season soon to commence, plans are currently underway for the release of Michelle Obama Portrait Doll outfits and accessories, inspired by fashions worn during her visits to Mexico City and Buckingham Palace. To learn more about the doll visit The Franklin Mint.
