A TOY company known for producing action figures of US political figures has started advertising its latest addition, the Anthony Weiner doll.
Herobuilders.com is offering two versions of the doll modelled after the New York Democrat who shot to fame around the world last week after admitting to having sent a lewd photo of his crotch to a Seattle college student on Twitter.
The Weiner doll comes as a standard doll for $US39.95 ($37.85) and an adults-only “anatomically correct” version for $US49.95 ($47.35).
Both figures are dressed in a T-shirt and gym shorts — with the words “tweet this” printed on the shorts.
For an extra $US18.00 ($17) customers can add a toy BlackBerry for the doll to hold.
