Years are flying by for me. I can remember when my sons were just little boys so I wanted to immortalize them at that age. At my local Mall there was a stand that made these wonderful dolls from baby pictures. So I brought two pictures along and had these wonderful dolls made up for me. Now I can hold my children again like when they were just a year old, even though both boys are in their 20s and tower over me. I want to thank my husband for giving into to my crazy impluses and allowing me to do this.

When my niece was about 2 years old, I made her a princess halloween costume. My sister and I went all out -- It was pink with a fluffy skirt and tuelle galore! My niece then had very curly brown hair and was cute as a button! That same year for Christmas, I made a doll with curly brown hair and and identical costume. To it, I attached a 2x3 framed picture of my niece in her costume. Even though it was for my niece, my sister kept it in a special place so that I would still be around when my niece got older. My sister loves this gift. My niece is now 13!!

There is a company that makes these dolls called "My Twin Doll" Company. I had one made for my granddaughter some years ago. They have a catalog and I'm sure they must have a web site. You are right about the price - it was around $200. Don't repeat this in case my husband sees it!!!

I would love to know the name and number of the company that made these dolls. Can you give it to me?

Their "babies" look real! I have seen some of the children AND the replicas of those children. It is amazing!

I LOVE those dolls!! The QUESTION IS: Where would you get someone who does that and ---HOW MUCH??? I'm afraid to ask and you may not want to tell. Don't worry --this is just BETWEEN YOU AND ME---and a million other readers!!!

This lady makes dolls from photos or drawings!
Not as realistic as the vinyl ones but still cute!
