Casey Anthony Voo-doo Doll Hits Ebay; Caylee Doll Not For Sale

Casey Anthony Voo-doo Doll

On the same day that a Jacksonville-based company announced that it was suspending the launch of its controversial Caylee Anthony-inspired doll, three voodoo dolls of Casey Anthony were being sold on eBay.

The Casey Anthony voodoo dolls were being auctioned with a starting bid of $19.99 for two of them and $29.99 for another.

One of the dolls is accompanied by handcuffs, a Bible and white sunglasses.

A description of the voodoo dolls said they were made by a New Orleans artist, who is "a studied, practiced and (renowned) spiritual healer, gemologist and jeweler." The artist also "engages in healing and spiritual craftmaking and in designing and manufacturing (spiritual) and (unique) jewel crafts (emphasis on voodoo dolls and dreamcatchers)."

Showbiz Promotions Ends Sale of Inspirational Caylee Doll Before It Begins

Meanwhile, public outcry played a role in halting the sale of a Caylee doll.

In a press release on cayleedoll.com, Showbiz Promotions President Jaime Salcedo said:

"It was our intention to begin the sale of the Sunshine Caylee Doll at 12:00 p.m. January 27, 2009. As we mentioned to the media in our press release it was very important that we allow the press to present our idea to the public first, in an effort to measure the reaction to our fund raising efforts. As the story developed we also announced that we would be donating 100% of the profits to charity. However, after reviewing the response to our media introduction of the Sunshine Caylee Doll and listening to the advice of the general public. We feel that is it best to suspend the launch of The Sunshine Caylee Doll.

"While we still feel it is important to raise awareness and raise money to help stop this type of crime from being committed. We feel we can be more effective using more traditional methods.

"We would like to (thank) everyone who made comments or called us to express their opinion."

On Monday, the company listed the doll on its Web site for about $30.

The doll has blond hair, stands 18 inches tall and wears a white T-shirt and blue jeans. The company said it purposely did not create the doll in Caylee's likeness.

The doll plays the song "You Are My Sunshine" when you push its belly button, a song that Caylee was seen singing on a home video released shortly after she was declared missing.

Showbiz Promotions said it has no relation to the Anthony family, and that it would not get involved in the legal aspect of the case against Caylee's mother, Casey Anthony.
