Holiday Gift Guide | My Twinn Review

My daughter recently celebrated her fifth birthday and in honor of the special occasion I had been searching for a very special and memorable gift. When I discovered My Twinn®, I immediately knew that I had found the perfect present that is sure to be treasured by my young daughter for many years to come.

My Twinn® hand-crafts every doll to look very similar to your child (ages 3-12) including customizable features such as eye color, hair color and style and skin tone. For my daughter’s doll, I was able to select the perfect hair length, texture and bangs. You can even request special features such as freckles, birth marks, moles etc. The very talented and skilled doll artisans are passionate about capturing your child’s special features by hand-painting the doll’s eyebrows, cheeks and lips.

Creating our doll online at My Twinn® was very user friendly and it was also easy and fun. I simply filled out the personal profile and sent in recent photos of my daughter to the doll artisans. Each doll is 23” tall and has 18 joints so she can be posed in many different ways. In fact she can even stand on her own on a flat surface. I also like that My Twinn® kept me up to date on the status of the entire doll making process and even let me know when “Anna” had shipped.

I was so excited to see my daughter’s expression when she opened her birthday gift. My Twinn® offers many accessories and even has matching outfits for the doll and child. I loved the pretty Pink & Black Satin Print Dressy Outfit so I purchased it to make it even more of a surprise. While getting ready for her birthday party, Hannah loved dressing up in her lovely outfit but had no idea that her new friend “Anna” would be dressed to match…..complete with satin bow!

When Hannah opened up her My Twinn® doll (that comes in a pretty signature box) her expression was priceless. Her eyes grew wide and she shouted with joy when she realized that the doll, “looks just like me.” She said it is “the best gift in the whole world” and that she “loves having a sister to play with instead of only boys” (she has two brothers).

I am so impressed with the attention to detail and heirloom quality of our My Twinn doll. I also appreciate that although each doll is like a piece of art….it is also very playable and child friendly. My daughter has enjoyed playing for hours with “Anna” and even dresses her in pajamas for bedtime each night. My Twinn® has lots of accessories, doll furniture and clothes to choose from for both the dolls and child.

My daughter has severe asthma and has spent many frightening days as an inpatient at the hospital. My Twinn® has an entire selection of unique doll accessories that is sure to help comfort children that need to spend time in the hospital such as a wheelchair, crutches, hearing aids and casts.

My Twinn® dolls and accessories would be a wonderful gift idea for the holidays or a special occasion. You are invited to visit the My Twinn® website to create your own special doll for only $149!
