When I was a kid, I dreamed of having a fancy doll, with hair I could brush, accessories and clothes I could dress her up in. Even more, I wanted a doll that looked like me. Being the extremely pale kid I was with dirty blond to mousy brown hair and blue eyes, it was pretty much impossible to find a doll like that on a store shelf.
Now here I am, years later, with two little girls that are anything but typical. Kaydence, my ultimate girly-girl was born with my pale complexion, dirty blond hair and got her daddy’s rootbeer brown eyes and tight curls. Then there’s Emmaleigh, a spitting image of her father with a mocha complexion, loose curly brown hair and the most unique eye color I’ve ever seen. Two little girls that unique just won’t find a doll like themselves on any store shelf, ever.
Fortunately, this is where My Twinn comes in.
About My Twinn
My Twinn creates one-of-a-kind personalized dolls designed to look like children ages 3-12. A handcrafted My Twinn doll makes the perfect gift – a cuddly companion today and a cherished keepsake in the years to come. Our artisans create each doll using the finest quality vinyl for faces and limbs and a soft, fully poseable body for playability. Matching girl and doll clothing, stylish accessories and unique furniture enhance the My Twinn experience.
A few weeks ago our family was given the opportunity to order a My Twinn doll and customize it too look like our daughter Kaydence. As you can see below, I instantly fell in love with the dolls just looking at them online and ordered a second doll for our daughter Emmaleigh.
While going through the customization steps online, you get to choose the skin color (5 options, light to dark), eye color (9 options), hair color (10 options) and even the hair style right down to the bangs.
What really, truly impressed me right away was the eye color options. Our daughter Emmaleigh is especially unique in the way that she doesn’t exactly have a true eye color. Since the day she was born her eyes have been a mixture of brown, yellow, blue and green with each band of color clearly defined. In the close-up of Emma’s doll below you can see the green/brown option that is close as you can possibly get to duplicating Emma’s eye color.
During the ordering process you’re also asked to submit a digital image of your child so they face can be matched as closely as possible. We saw this artistic work first hand when comparing the dolls side by side and realized they even painted the Emma doll lips a little fuller than the Kaydee doll lips.
My Twinn allows you to make the experience even more fun with matching doll and daughter clothes, accessories and furniture. To experience the My Twinn custom dolls ordering process for yourself, be sure to check out the My Twinn Doll Designer online.
