Little Thinkers bring great minds to plush dolls

I received an ebay alert about some Elizabeth 1 dolls offered on Ebay and noticed a listing for a really cute and nicely detailed plush doll of Elizabeth termed a "Little Thinker". I did a little more research and found that this whimsical line of dolls, targeted towards college students, is being produced by a company called the Possibility Center:

"Little Thinker Dolls from the Possibility Centre are plush dolls of famous intellectuals such as Buddha, Marx, Dickinson, Nietzsche, Ghandi, and Mozart. The antidote to Barbie and Bratz this Christmas.

Little Thinkers stand six to eight inches tall and although the likeness is limited to something of a simple caricature, (Mozart could easily be mistaken for Count Dracula and Nietzsche bears an uncanny resemblance to Groucho Marx), they'll make an interesting accompaniment when partnered with corresponding prints or written works and hopefully inspire children with more than an interest in hair and make-up or Action-Man's gun."
The going rate at present seems to be about $16.
