Madoff inspires a devil of a doll
NEW YORK - Mad at disgraced investor Bernard Madoff? There's a toy just for you.
One of the vendors at this week's Toy Fair is offering the "Smash-Me Bernie," a $99.95 Madoff look-alike doll that wears a devil-red suit and carries a pitchfork. It comes with its own hammer - so you can pulverize it.
Phoenix-based ModelWorks is behind the caricature Mini-Me figures, which can be customized to look like celebrities or whomever a buyer chooses.
Madoff was arrested in December after investigators said he confessed to his sons that he had swindled investors of $50 billion in a Ponzi scheme.
The toy fair is open only to the industry and runs through tomorrow.
