Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Marvelous Mariah


After the election of President Barack Obama in November of 2008, the Ty Corporation made two dolls in the likeness of the first daughters. Originally named Sweet Sasha and Marvelous Malia, the dolls received criticism from the First Lady and the President for capitalizing on their children. Ty eventually manufactured the dolls but rebranded them under the names of Sweet Sydney and Marvelous Mariah--still looking considerably like the Obama girls.
