Moms and Dads are the most important people in a child’s life. It’s tough for a kid when he or she has to be away from their Mommy or Daddy, especially for a long period of time. Whether it’s because one parent travels for business, their parents are divorced, or a parent serves in our military and is deployed overseas, kids miss their parents while they’re away.

We know nothing can take the place of Mom and Dad when they’re gone, however, Budsies Selfies provide comfort for kids of all ages. These custom stuffed huggable dolls are made to look like Mom or Dad, including features like your glasses, favorite outfit, and small accessories. It gives your child something to hug, talk to you and love while you’re away.

Military families have responded so positively to our Budsies Selfies. We have received so many wonderful stories and photos of kids being able to bring their Mom or Dad with them thanks to our custom stuffed dolls.

Sarah said she ordered a Military Selfie of her husband to give to her daughter Madison. Rob, who is a member of the United States Marine Corps, was being deployed and would be away from his family. Madison loves the Selfie and calls it her “daddy doll” and brings it on all kinds of adventures! Sarah said the special doll helped her daughter’s transition when Rob was deployed.

While nothing replaces her Daddy, Madison’s mom says the girl loved having her special doll with her when she went out to eat. Her family was able to still have a family dinner while Rob was deployed.
