We found this great article on ABC News and thought it was an excellent DIY project for all parents who need to be away from home and their young children.
The concept takes a photo of the parents, records a personalized message from Mom or Dad, and puts everything on a soft doll that young children can hold and cuddle.
Very young children under about 12 or 18 months of age might be a bit confused by Mom or Dad's voice coming from a doll, as the article notes, but slighter older tots seem to love them.
