Daddy Dolls – Tip #452
When my kids were younger they would have loved to have cuddled with a doll that had their Dad’s face on it. I realized that they are older now and that might not be considered ‘cool’ but I still loved the idea of having something with his face on it to take on trips, to eat with us, to put into pictures and have fun with so… I ordered an Daddy Doll to have some fun with! This doll is going to be on a lot of adventures with us while their Dad is away and we are going to keep track of them all through photos. We have also started pinning ticket stubs, momentos, receipts, etc. onto the back of the doll. When their Dad is back we will be able to talk about all the adventures our Daddy Doll went on while he was away. It was $100 including shipping and taxes and has been one of the best things we have ever purchased for absences!
