Former President George W. Bush celebrates his 71st birthday on Thursday. You can mark the occasion by purchasing one of several dolls with his likeness on eBay.

President from 2001 until early 2009, when President Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th U.S. commander-in-chief, Bush has a varied legacy.

One of the hallmarks of his presidency — which included the 9/11 attacks, the start of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Hurricane Katrina — is the amount of merchandise that his image adorns.

A simple search on eBay finds a variety of dolls and toys dedicated to the man who recently had Jay Leno out to his ranch to do some chores.

There is even a Bush chew toy for dogs whose owners are presumably Democrats, along with stress balls and voodoo dolls from the late ’00s when anti-Bush sentiment ran high.

Way more dolls depict George W. Bush than bear the likeness of his father, George H.W. Bush, which we’re sure is the subject of much family controversy. Obama, for better or worse, is the subject of many toys.

As for the Bush dolls, they come in a variety of sizes and outfits. There are at least two “Top Gun” Bush dolls in flight suits, a casual Bush dressed up for a morning stroll at his ranch in Crawford, and at least one who is decked out in western wear and sings country music.

Some dolls talk, some dance and others do both. 

One company came out with a series of Presidential Monsters action figures and included a Zom-Bush next to Baracula, Lincolnstein and General Eisenhowler
