    DD didn't like it at first. Then she liked it for a while when he's been gone. Now it's just another toy though. It stays in her bed and she sleeps with it, but I don't think she'd care if it was in the toy box right now instead of her bed.

    I didn't know about them until a month or two ago and my kids are to old now. I think it is a good idea for the younger ones.

    Waiting on my MIL to order them, but seeing my kids are older, I cant see them carrying them around everyone, maybe just sleeping with them.

    yes, they work at night

    My children are 2,4,and 6. When Daddy first deployed they took the Daddy doll everywhere, now mostly they sleep with it, but they do like the voice recorder especially at night. They also take it on trips.

    Other: Don't have kids, thus haven't tried it. But I saw Petsparkle's daughter with hers... and OMG do they work. She (petsparkle's dd) loved that thing, and from an outsider's perspective, it really seemed like it worked wonders for keeping her happy and helping her remember daddy.

    My kids haven't used them, but I know that our base (some volunteers) make them for the kids when the parents deploy. I'm just lucky the DH hasn't been deployed since we have been married, I know he probably well later this year or early next though.

    DD loves that part. She learned to take it out of the pocket though. When he left for winter training this year, DD had the voice recorder out and was pressing it over and over. She was even talking to it like she thought he could hear her through it. It was her favorite thing for a while.

    Also want to add that I still think Daddy Dolls are a great idea. I got one for my 1 year old niece for while my brother is deployed. She LOVES it. She lays on top of it and cuddles it and snuggles with it.

    My kids love them, but have gone through phases with how attached they actually are. There was a point where my 3 year old brought it EVERYWHERE with him. Right now I'm not sure where they are, lol. I think they are a great idea- I totally think that they have helped my 19 month old really recognize his daddy- one of his first words was even Dada while pointing and kissing his Daddy Doll.

    Totally worth it!!
