As a Special Forces Engineer Sergeant, my husband is gone a lot, whether it's a deployment (he's on his fourth now) or TDY. We got a flat daddy for our son last deployment, and as our son is very young, I feel it helped him remember his daddy which made redeployment a great deal easier. Now that's he's a little older he tells his flat daddy good night, good morning, and even blows him kisses. I really believe it has helped keep him connected to his father, even though they're miles apart.


Flat Daddies is amazing. I ordered a Flat Daddy for my 9 month old son so he would never go a day without seeing his Dad and he would be able to learn to say Da Da while looking at me. Well i noticed that my deployment to Africa was about to come to an end and my wife and son still had not received their Flat Daddy. I emailed the company wondering what was going on and they told me they have been having some problems with their machine but to make up for it the by refunded me my money and still sent my son his Flat Daddy. Flat Daddies is amazing while being deployed because seeing my son look up at me would turn any bad day into a beautiful day. Thank you for everything.

my flat daddy has been through one deployment and we are now entering another. We hung it up on our living room wall and when he came back from Iraq it went down. I am not happy it is being put back up (for that only means another deployment) but I am excited that we have it. It is so nice to look at the pic when you miss them more than you can stand. 12-15 months is a long time to be without your spouse and this helps you feel connected. Thanks Flat daddy!!!

Here is a picture of our flat daddy. I told our son now daddy can watch him play with his toys and make sure he is sharing with his friends. Here is our "family" picture with our flat daddy. We love it soooooo much thank you guys for making this possible

My 15 month old daughter loves her Flat Daddy and so do I! As soon as I put it up she said "dada!" and has been talking to it ever since. It just goes to show that she does still remember her daddy and misses him just as much as I do.
