This shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone, we all knew one day someone would come out with something to legitimately make money off the death of this child. The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that a Jacksonville promotions company plans to sell a doll which will be called a tribute to little Caylee Anthony.

The Inspirational Caylee Sunshine Doll is expected to go on sale Tuesday at the selling price of $29.99. The doll will be 18 inches high and she will be wearing jeans and a T-shirt depicting a sun and the phrase: CAYLEE SUNSHINE. She will have blonde hair. When you press her belly button the song “You Are My Sunshine” will play. (of course the title of the song is of no surprise either) The doll is poseable and her eye lashes blink. She also comes with her own baseball cap. (looks to me like the doll’s shoes are too big for her too)

The president of Showbiz Promotions, James Salcedo said the doll does not look exactly like Caylee because he thinks that would be too morbid and difficult for the public. They claim they want to honor and respect Caylee’s life with this new doll by bringing awareness to her case. Salcedo said that they want this to be a tribute. He also plans to donate a portion of the sales to charity though he didn’t say which organization he planned to give to. Let’s hope it isn’t KidFinder’s or the Foundation run by the Anthony’s.

He claims to be waiting to hear from several organizations including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He said he is considering donating $3 for every doll sold. If this has to happen he should be donating the money to Tim Miller to help pay back what Equusearch has put on the search for Caylee. They could really use the money.

Reporters asked him whether he thought it was appropriate for him company to profit on Caylee’s death. He said he is anticipating critics. “I think that is going to come up,” he said.  He also claims the public doesn’t understand what it costs to make the doll, ship it, import it and at his company’s expense.

Does this make this right? To put this doll on sale before little Caylee is even buried is totally disgusting I think. He says they want to honor and respect Caylee, how can this possibly be honoring her or respecting her when she isn’t even laid to rest yet. I personally hope no one buys these dolls and the company is stuck with all of them unable to even give them away. It is bad enough producing these dolls but to put them up for sale before this child is buried is a disgrace and it shouldn’t be allowed. Of course this is my opinion.

God bless little Caylee. I know she is looking down at us wondering what will happen next.
