Our Flat Daddy has been great for our children. My husband and I, while home for R&R, put our's in a frame and put it on the wall for them to see every day. A friend and I also let our Flat Daddy's hang out for a while. You guys are doing a great job for our children. THANK YOU!

I gave birth to our first child not too long after my husband deployed. I have been showing my son our Flat Daddy EVERY morning since we have had it... now at 5 months he reaches for it and smiles sooo big when he sees it. Thank you guys, even though we can't have daddy here, the flat daddy is the next best thing. And I'm hoping that it will help my son to know his daddy's face, so when he sees him after being gone for a year and a half he will know who he is.

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!

Just wanted to say thanks for this amazing gift. My two year old loves to see her daddy around all day. She kisses and hugs him before she goes to bed. The best part is that we can include daddy in our prayers at night. Thanks again.

Our Flat Daddy has helped keep the kids connected to daddy while he has been deployed for the past 7 months. Thanks for providing such an awesome service to military families all over the world!
