Mini Obama nets doll maker a fortune

A German doll-maker has created a Barak Obama replica that is just 36cm high. It comes wearing a pale blue tie and a black suit – similar to the one often seen on the Democratic presidential candidate.

The creator admits the facial features don't mirror Obama's exactly, as he was trying to keep production costs down.

Less than a thousand have been made and they're selling for more than $US 200 each alongside the Dalai Lama and Pope Benedict XVI.
