An Iranian company is mocking the United States and President Barack Obama by sending a U.S. drone captured in December home — with a small makeover.

Ridiculing U.S. requests to return the drone, an Iranian toy company plans to send a miniature pink model of the RQ-170 Sentinel to Obama.

Seyyed Saeed Hassan-pour, head of the cultural department of the Aaye Co., which is making the toy, said, "We wanted for Mr. Obama himself to have these toys and know that Iranians don't leave anyone's requests unanswered. We made the 'RQ' in pink, as it is Mr. Obama's favorite color, and we will send it to him via the Swiss embassy."

State TV broadcast footage of the drone draped in anti-American banners after it was captured in December near the Afghan border.

Iran's Foreign Ministry complained to the U.N. Security Council about the spy mission and told the United States to apologize.

"We decided to show that we can deal with this issue in a very friendly and peaceful manner and put it in the playful hands of the children of Iran to pursue a 'soft war' with Mr. Obama and the U.S. This was the aim of producing this aircraft."

The toy models will hit the market this week and go for 70,000 rials — or $4 each.
