Jaime Salcedo, president of Showbiz Promotions has put out a doll based on the death of 2 year old Caylee Anthony. The doll (when pushed on the belly button) sings the song "You are my Sunshine" which the media has put out of Caylee Anthony singing in probably the last ever video taken of Caylee Anthony before her tragic murder. On Janurary 26th 2009, Jaime Salcedo was on Nancy Grace and when asked how much of the profits would go to charitable causes, he replied that he didn't know yet, because he hadn't sold any.
*UPDATE: It appears that on the website www.cayleedoll.com, they have a press release from the president of Showbiz Promotions stating that the doll has been suspended. Hopefully this is true, however this petition will still stay active so please sign to make sure that such a distribution never happens.
UPDATE*: Check out the following link an ebay user by the name of
You will also see what looks to be a screenshot from the www.cayleedoll.com website...I will make sure to notify everyone by email, but please get the word out. This guy still is trying to sell these dolls! Also the seller has 101 pts in feedback, being familiar with ebay I know that he can't gain those points over night, so someone by this name is trying to auction off these dolls. Get the word about about this petition.
*Update Jan. 28, 2009* 9:00pm Eastern time:
Within 15 minutes of posting the last update (above) the item on ebay was removed, (some of you good people may have had something to do with that) now if you go onto www.cayleedoll.com website, the dolls have 3 different names to choose from...go see for yourself...
**UPDATE:DOLL IS BEING SOLD AS "HOPE SUNSHINE" AT THIS LINK: http://store01.prostores.com/servlet/vickdogchewtoy/the-80/The-Inspirational--Sunshine/Detail , BUT UNDERNEATH IS A PARAGRAPH MENTIONING CAYLEE'S NAME! Salcedo, REMOVE CAYLEE'S NAME/LIKENESS FROM THIS DOLL.... YOU SAID IN THE BEGINNING YOU DIDN'T KNOW HOW MUCH WAS GOING TO CHARITY, BUT NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN, ITS 100% OF THE PROFIT?? WHY COULDN'T YOU HAVE SAID THAT FROM THE BEGINNING... YOUR INTENTIONS ARE SELFISH.
This company has no good explanation for putting out this doll, and is making money off of this poor girl's loss of life. The president of the company will be making money off of this little girl, and it is not right, not to mention it is MORBID.
Who in their right mind would want to purchase a doll inspired by the murder of a 2 year old girl, who's family is at great loss.
Don't forget to pass this along in your other blog, facebook, myspace, or any other outlet used to get the message across! Thank you.

You are stating that you do not want Showbiz Promotions, its employees and affiliates to profit off of the death of Caylee Anthony.
