I must tell you, my daughter (9) loves this! Lori (great name of course) allowed me to send her a picture of my daughters face and the back of her head to create this doll. Lori Reader is a mom who began this company when her children desired more time at bedtime after reading them a story.
Needless to say, I don't think M has put it down for long. She did change it into a skirt, as we wear skirts and dresses. She was able to choose a saying for her doll's t-shirt and chose "Mommy's Girl". I really like the idea behind the doll also. It will help calm a child at bedtime, or perhaps on a trip. If dad has to travel a lot, you could do a doll with his face. I needed to share this At the Fence!
Here is some information from the Loveable Lookalike website:
"Loveable Look-a-Like Dolls Are Making A Difference
Comfort, Security, Reassurance and Fun for Children and AdultHave you ever wished you could clone yourself and be there to comfort and reassure children, family members and friends whenever they need you
Loveable Look-a-Like Dolls are the answer! Personalize them with your face — or any face you choose — and use our voice chip to leave a loving message, sing a song, or say a prayer. These dolls bring comfort and loving reminders to children, grandparents friends, and sweethearts. And they even help support memories for adults with Alzhiemer’s."
Get to know our CEO Lori Reader
After earning a degree in public relations, Lori, a graduate of Rowan University in New Jersey, took the helm as marketing director of her husband’s dental practice and soon positioned him as the premier dentist in Viera, FL, and the first Brevard County dentist certified in LUMINEERS by Cerinate, a revolutionary enhancement for correcting chips, stains, misalignments and spaces between teeth. Following that success, Lori set her sites on launching another successful enterprise that speaks to her passion as a mother.
When her four children were little, Lori had learned they all wanted her to snuggle with her at bedtime, and as she moved from bed to bed, they always begged for more time. One day inspiration struck, and the first Loveable Look-a-Like doll was born.
How We Create Loveable Look-a-Like DollsWhen Lori decided to introduce her Loveable Look-a-Like dolls to the public, she teamed up with textile expert Brenda Mulberry, CEO of Space Shirts in Merritt Island, Florida. Space Shirts, which manufactures and imprints Loveable Look-a-Like dolls, also is the premier designer of custom art produced for sale and promotional needs of the Kennedy Space Center, among many other industries and businesses nationwide. Brenda and her design team have created custom shirt designs and products for almost every Space Shuttle mission in the past decade. That same history and attention to detail helps ensure success of the Loveable Look-a-Like manufacturing enterprise.
Loveable Look-a-Like dolls are hot stamped and assembled at Space Shirts' large production facility, where a team of graphic artists, textile, marketing, and fulfillment experts help us ensure a high level of quality control for every Loveable Look-a-Like product.
Today, Loveable Look-a-Like fills orders from across the country for our unique dolls, which are made of soft cotton, and customized with photo faces of parents, grandparents, siblings or special friends, as well as digital voice recordings and hand-sewn outfits. Loveable Look-a-Like dolls are great for children to cuddle, tote to pre-school, bring on visits. They also help children feel close to someone they love, and can provide comfort during times of bereavement. For adults, Loveable Look-a-Likes are a fun gift, and can be imprinted with the face of a loved one for family members in nursing homes or Alzheimer's units.
"I hope you enjoy your Loveable Look-a-Like Doll as much as my family, friends and I do," said Lori Reader. Please contact us and let us know how Loveable Look-a-Likes make a difference in your life."
