He plans to sell them for over $200 and does so successfully, although Jim Halpert sarcastically comments that Dwight's plan is the meaning of Christmas. Michael Scott is also aware of the Princess Unicorn craze, as well as Sasha Flenderson, Toby's daughter. Dwight sells his last doll to Darryl Philbin, however, Toby promised it to Sasha, so for once he can be the hero. After Toby desperately begs, Daryl decides to give the prized doll to Toby for double the price ($400). Toby is shocked to find out it is the African-American version of the doll, but takes it anyway.
"Princess Unicorn is from a distant land on a distant planet far away in the future. She came from her father, king of unicorns, and her mother, queen of the princesses. Sorcerissa, the evil witch, cast a spell on Princess Unicorn's parents, forcing them into another dimension and doused Princess Unicorn with radiation. The radiation did not hurt Princess Unicorn, but gave her magical powers. She can summon her magic by holding her wand and calling out, my horn can pierce the sky! Now she uses her magic and beauty to write for the school paper, defend the kingdom, and battle Sorcerissa, so she can be united with her mother and father someday."
