Marvelous Mariah was originally released as Marvelous Malia, as a pair with another Ty Girlz named Sweet Sasha. The original Girlz had the same first names as President Obama's two young daughters. A controversy ensued that caused Ty Inc., to retire the original names Malia and Sasha; and rename the Girlz Mariah and Sydney. The design of the Girlz did not change; only their names.

Marvelous Mariah was also produced as one of the Ty Li'l ones.

Shortly after the release of Marvelous Mariah, she was
also sold with an American flag attached to her sleeve.
We do not know if this was an original promotion from
Ty, or added later by a retailer.
