First Pup Bo has only been living with the Obama family for a week, but already, toymaker Ty has introduced a Beanie Baby made in his likeness. The cute black-and-white toy -- which looks similar to a Portuguese Water Dog -- comes with a patriotic red, white and blue ribbon around his neck and bright white feet, just like 6-month-old Bo. An initial run of the $4.99 toys hit shelves on April 16 and sold out within hours. Now, several are already selling on ebay for more than $2,000. The toy company plans to make more Bos, and says they'll donate a portion of the proceeds to animal shelters in need.
