Why we do this!......
"I just wanted to thank you so much for coming up with this product. My husband and I purchased one when we found out we were expecting. Our daughter has had a close bond with him from the first time he talked to her in the womb. She was born Nov 7th. Daddy is in Afghanistan, but this daddy doll has truly been one of the greatest blessing. He got to Skype and she heard his voice. So when we introduced her daddy doll she was instantly soothed by his voice. The nurses at the hospitals always ask to take it if they take her to the nursery. They say all it takes is putting it next to her in the bassinet and playing his message and she instantly calms and just stares at him. She fell asleep staring at the daddy doll. Again thank you so much for this idea or having the courage to run with the idea. It has truly made all the difference for this baby girl already!!" - Ashley, MS
"We received our Daddy doll today and I must tell you, the reaction from my 4 year old daughter was priceless. Thank you so much for making such a great item for kids who really don’t understand a parent being gone!" - Crystal, Vilseck Army Base
"I'm not sure who came up with the Hug A Hero doll idea, but I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart. I am a single mother with a 2 year old son that I had to leave for a deployment.. I stumbled across the website and thought it would be a nice surprise for my son since he's old enough to understand that I am gone. From what I'm told, he carries his mommy doll to school and sleeps with it and if people ask about it, he says, "That's my mommy!!! She went on an airplane". It means a lot to me that he can have me at arm length even when I'm so far away. Thank you!" - Angela, Nevada
