In commemoration of the 30th Anniversary of his untimely passing, Marie Osmond pays tribute to the "King," with a very special doll, Baby Elvis. Having personally known Elvis when she was a young woman, Marie was greatly influenced by both Elvis and his music, and Elvis himself was particularly fond of Marie's mother, Olive Osmond.

“This doll holds special meaning for me because I was fortunate enough to meet Elvis, as his and my family’s entertainment paths crossed on occasion. Just like so many of you, I was completely smitten by Elvis’s charm, talent and his swiveling hips!”

The first in Marie's Little Bit Country, Little Bit Rock & Roll doll series, Baby Elvis wears the iconic American Eagle Jumpsuit from Elvis's 1973 Aloha from Hawaii satellite TV concert special, which is widely regarded as the pinnacle of his superstardom. The first worldwide television broadcast of its kind, Elvis's Aloha from Hawaii special was seen by 1.5 billion viewers from around the globe, and earned more American viewers than the first moonwalk.

Knowing that he would be seen by so many television viewers worldwide, Elvis personally commissioned the customized white jumpsuit, a deliberate symbol of patriotism with its prominent eagle embellished with red, blue and gold. Marie selected this outfit for Baby Elvis, because it was one of the few costumes for which Elvis involved himself in the design concept.

Baby Elvis will also be the first-ever boy doll in the company's 16-year history to be featured on the cover of the Marie Osmond Doll Catalog. Baby Elvis is limited to an edition of 5,000 and retails for $149.95. For more information visit www.marieosmond.com. Baby Elvis is officially licensed by Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.

I've read several fan comments and so many are panning this idea, yet Marie is known for producing quality dolls. So I say give her a chance. I'm not sure what she means by "baby" though, but we'll see when the doll is released.

Thank you Di! I had no idea the doll had even been made yet. I was surprised too. I was thinking "baby" meant small in size, but I see it refers to a "babying" of the face. And I guess there is a real market for those kind of dolls. I'm not sure really what to think, as I am not into dolls and am not a collector.

I'd love to get Julie's opinion, as she is our Elvis doll person for ELC. Julie, what do you think of the Marie Osmond Elvis baby doll?
