A flower lei welcomes a very special visitor to the “Paradise of the Pacific” where a colorful shirt is a must. Flip-flops are the footwear of choice on sandy beaches. Warm turquoise waters beckon and a gentle breeze carries the scent of hibiscus blossoms. Aloha, Mr. President. Aloha.

President Obama, Superhero


It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s “President Obama, Superhero,” wearing a skintight blue suit, red crime fighting boots and a flowing crimson cape that allows him to fly (OK, this doll doesn’t actually have the ability to fly…) See more photos.

“Superhero” has moved to Illinois.
