Caylee Sunshine creator writing inspirational book

June 8, 2009

Jaime SalcedoJaime Salcedo, the guy that was selling the Caylee Sunshine doll has decided that what he has to say is so significant that he is writing a book.  Apparently, he feels that his creative process is unique, (can’t argue with that one) and people will PAY to learn how he comes up with his tasteless ideas and the sleazy products (JMO or is it?) that result from those ideas. (I WILL argue with that one–NO WAY will people pay to read his book–will they??) The book will detail how he created toys like the Caylee Anthony inspired Sunshine doll, and the Michael Vick doggie chew toy from “conception to controversy.” (wow–won’t that be a page turner!)

Mr. Salcedo was criticized roundly for putting both of those items on the market and then vaguely saying his company was going to donate a portion of the profits to charity (later upped to ALL the profits after significant public outrage.)

The book, whose working title is “Inc(read)ible: From a Famous Dog Chew Toy to an Ever Inspiring Doll Collection,” is set to hit bookstores this fall. The news release does not say how much the book will cost. (think it will generate midnight release parties? LOL)

The Caylee Sunshine doll has obvioiusly brought Salcedo and his company a great deal of publicity albeit caylee dollynegative publicity. (Who ever heard of him before that?) He made the rounds of the talk show circuit defending his reasons for creating the doll and insisting that he would be donating the profits to charity. Florida Attorney General, Bill McCollum has taken exception to that and is suing  Salcedo’s company, Showbiz Promotions.

On his Web site, Salcedo says he has done nothing “criminally wrong,” and makes claims that he has donated $5000 to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Unfortunately for him, that organization says all they have is a $10.00 donation in his name. (This is according to the Orlando Sentinal.  Under, FAQ’s, on his website, Salcedo says he INTENDED to give money to charity but because the media “marginalized” him, he didn’t make any money…..)

According to Atty General McCollum’s  suit, the same thing happened with the Michael Vick chew toy.  Profits from its sales were to be donated to animal shelters but so far, he hasn’t done it.

Mr. Salcedo apparently is delusional enough to think his life will inspire us, because  the news release  says that the book will include important life lessons:

“Jaime also shares his life lessons that include never giving up,” or “allowing the media to marginalize you or set the bar on what you can and cannot do.” His website states these are all reasons why he doesn’t “give up and get a real job.”   (I’m shaking my head in disbelief!)


As a sidenote:  Salcedo has taken advantage of his notoriety by allowing another web-based company, Scumbagz and Sleazeballz, to license his image for their kick balls and garbage bags. (Now I’m bangin’ my head against the wall! Is any of this real?)

I guess it is, cuz’ you can read about it below:

I would  say it’s a mystery to me how this man could possibly believe he is an inspiration for anything let alone how he convinced a publisher that he was–but I won’t…..

    Hello itsamystery, He is a inspiration to convicts just like himself. He is no different then the rest of the people involved in this case out for money. I hope everyone of them pray every night that God have mercy on their sick twisted souls. This is really so sickening. I already have a headache so I will not join you in banging my head on the wall, plus it will do no good because tomorrow another person will be doing the same sh!t. More then likely a Anthony or a Milstead. jmo

    Sounds like someone that Baez or the Anthonys could be involved with! What a disgrace.

    laura, paula–

    This guy really thinks he’s not hurting anyone or doing anything wrong. I added a link to his FAQ’s where he answers questions posed. He just thinks he’s pursuing the “American Dream” just like everyone else……Does he really think that?

    Just one more case in point of how our country’s values have been skewed and how what once was a bold strong line separating what is right and what is wrong has been blurred.

    It’s very sad Mystery, to see how much values have changed. I fear for my grandchildren.

    Inspiration? What? from the murder of a child? or the abuse of dogs? Is this guy kidding. And what publisher actually thought this is a good book to publish?

    This guy is a sleaze. He reminds me of Baez & his “businesses” before he was allowed to be a lawyer. well, even after that.

    mystery – you’re right, skewed & blurred. sad & scary.

    Yes, I worry about how my little 1 year old grandson’s world will look when he is an adult, too. I can’t believe how this country has changed in my lifetime–actually just in the last few years.

    Hi Mystery….sad to say there are very little left in what we thought of as being moral and decent…now it a feel good society and if you can sell it why not?
    Maybe Obama can make some sense of this…or at least apologize for
    Salcedo?

    IMO…the man is a sick greedy Bast@rd!!!!

    Did I really just read that? I’m pretty sure I’m awake right now. I drank coffee this mornin…am I dreaming? Can anyone verify that I’m awake right now? I’m gonna stick my finger in my parrot’s cage and if he nips me and it hurts, then I’m awake, and this is all really happening…. 🙂

    Mand–

    It has become a society of self-centered, self-serving individuals–no one really does anything for the “greater good” anymore. We were watching some of the D-Day ceremonies and I was really struck by what the surviving veterans were saying. I tried to imagine people today having that kind of morality, faith, honor, purpose, and loyalty, and I was hard pressed to do it……What a world we will leave our children and their children…very depressing.

    ostella–You’re awake. It just gets weirder and weirder. That beautiful little child’s murder has really brought out the worst in everyone. Why?

    This man is no better nor worse than the rest of the exploiters of this child…if the grandparents and their friends think it is their right to exploit her then why not this scumbag…he is following suit..he feels the need to make money as does Baez the Milsteads all of them.
    sad to say their are a few of us that find it reprehensible but on the other hand there are many that don’t give it a second thought.
    It is a cold heartless world we live in..people think of themselves first..and most could care less about their neighbor…it doesn’t concern them….and it isn’t getting better..I’m truly sadden and fear the world we are leaving our grandchildren and their children…so very sad.

    Who is the publisher of this trashrag? Do they actually think anyone will buy it? I’ve never seen such a clusterf*#k of blackhearted morons…. This sack of excrement hasn’t done one noteworthy deed in his entire life. He’s a heartless leech who tried to make a buck off a murdered baby, but only succeeded in morally repulsing society. Now he’s writing a book, defending his right to morally repulse society by lining his pockets with blood money… What publishing genius gave this project a nod? They may as well be wiping their a$$es with their money…. Nobodys ever gonna buy this filthy rag…
