My husband is a Marine and has been stationed in Iraq since December of 2006. My daughter Kylie was 3 1/2 months old when her daddy left...She is now 15 months old. I have Kylie's "flat daddy" taped up to her closet door so several times a day I will say "go kiss daddy" and she goes and kisses her "daddy." It is so sweet. I just wonder how she is going to react when the real thing comes home and he kisses back! :) Thank you so much for providing Kylie a fill in "daddy" while her daddy is gone. I don't mind being able to look at him every day as well. :) Thanks so much!!!!!

We have 3 children at home all under the age of 5. I was amazed to see how excited all of them were about their flatdaddy. The 2 year-old plays with him all day and even tries to feed him. The 8 month old constantly stares at him and babbles while smiling. The 4 year-old talks to him and tells him everything that is going on. In the morning and before they go to bed they always kiss him and tell him that they Love him. This is such a great thing for our lives thank you so much!!!

Thanks so much for the Flat Daddy. My 2 yr old and 5 month old have Daddy watching over them while they play and we sit him at the table with us at dinner. He takes turns in their rooms at night too. I think it will help them embrace Daddy when he gets home in 11 months!

My kids are older but they love their flat daddy. We have him hanging in the dinning room right now. The picture I am sharing is part of what we did for his birthday. We hung a sign that said Happy Birthday dad and took the boys pictures and video with it and emailed it to him. Thank you so much for the flat daddy. We have so much fun with him and everyone that visits loves him. Thank you again for putting some sunshine our way, during the time he is away.
