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.

My Twinn Doll Girls

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.

  1. These are ADORABLE!! I too always wanted a super cute and fancy doll like this. Guess I will have to live through my girls as well.

  2. I have to say this has been one of my favorite reviews too. Your girls are so cute, they look just like their dolls!!

  3. Those look so cool. My daughter has always wanted one, after placing your order, did you have to wait a long time for it to arrive?

    • It took about 3 weeks from the order date. I got updates during the process though, when it was sent to the artists, shipped.

  4. Like you, this was always an issue for me too, so I truly appreciate how customized they make this. These are absolutely wonderful!!!

  5. We just recently got one of these as well, and while Zo and I love it…it totally freaks my husband out LOL

  6. My daughter would go crazy for these. I love all the options and I can’t believe how closely they resemble your kids! That’s amazing.

  7. Oh my goodness! I can’t get over the likeness!! The pigtails are adorable btw. :D

    I would have loved this when I was a kid. I think my daughter wouldn’t fully appreciate how cool it is yet, maybe when she’s 4 or 5…

  9. I love my twinn dolls! what skin color did you choose for emma? i am very worried i will choose wrong color i think my girl is really between a fair and olive – but olive seems too dark on catalogue picture. thank you

    • Hi Angie, the skin color of Emma’s doll is the “light brown”. I bet you could get some great advice on the color choice if you post your daughter’s picture to the My Twinn Facebook page. All of the customers there are really helpful!

  10. Christy says:

    Which hair color did you choose for your older daughter. I am struggling between dark blond and golden brown for mine.

    • We went with the dark blond for Kaydee’s doll, it’s more of an ashy, dirty blond color and Emma’s is the medium brown.
