He’s the most popular doctor in the nation right now and a Connecticut custom toy company is paying homage with a plush Dr. Anthony Fauci doll.

“What can a toy company do to support hospitals treating COVID-19 patients?” a statement on the New England Toy Company website says. “Do what we do best… create a toy that brings a smile and donate money when each one is purchased!”

$5 dollars from every sale of the $25 limited edition doll will go to coronavirus charities in Connecticut.

Described as a 12 inch tall high quality plush toy, the Fauci doll includes a removable superhero cape with a face mask logo that sports an “F” for Fauci.
