After listening to my daughter beg for a My Twinn Doll for what seemed like ages, I finally gave in and ordered one for her. The idea is simple: you request a doll in the likeness of your child, right down to the eye color, skintone, face shape, and hairstyle. You can even request tiny details like freckles and beauty marks to match your child's. You fill out the form included in the catalog (you can also do this online, if you prefer), choose a name for the doll, and submit a photo or two of your child. Then the doll artisans go to work.
Although the site quotes a production time of about 3-4 weeks, I received my daughter's doll in just over 2 weeks. What a beautiful doll! It looks so much like my daughter that my husband is kind of freaked out by it! Best of all, my daughter is completely enthralled by this doll, especially because I have purchased a few matching outfits for her and her My Twinn (also available at the My Twinn site). She gets quite a hoot out of dressing the doll to match her own outfit. This doll is now my daughter's constant companion!
