Oh, Bernie.

Just days after Senator Bernie Sanders went viral for his attire at the presidential inauguration, there is now a new doll representing his look. It's complete with his olive-colored coat and the famous brown and white mittens.

"OMG!!! Take my money!!! The Bernie Sanders doll is the cutest thing I've seen today" one excited twitter user wrote.

The 9" crocheted doll was made by a woman in Texas, who was inspired by the thousands of memes showing Bernie transposed into various images.

The little doll, which was pictured sitting on a miniaturize-sized bench, was put on Ebay and sold for more than $20,000.

The 46-year-old doll-maker says she will donate the money to Meals on Wheels America.

Earlier this week, The Milwaukee-based National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum also jumped on the viral moment, unveiling its "Bernie Sanders Inauguration Day Bobblehead" last Wednesday for pre-order.

The bobblehead sells for $25, plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order.

Senator Sanders himself also got in on his viral fame by selling brown, longsleeve, crewneck sweatshirts with his inauguration image printed on the front.

The Vermont Senator's website says 100% of the proceeds were donated to Meals on Wheels Vermont.
