Where can I get one? I had one as a girl and loved her. I want to order one perhaps for DD's second birthday.

Either the Twinn Dolls or the American Girl dolls (they have ones you can pick to match your features and the historical ones).

There was one post on here by a SAHM specialist in this, though, a small company- anyone remember?

Interesting- which key words? I Googled it but I did not get all of those. But those are not the ones that were posted on here earlier (I could not find the link searching the site...)

How I wish I'd have bookmarked it!

I forgot to say thank you. :

the AG just like me ones do have a biracial one.

My dd has a Bitty Baby, she got the medium skinned one with brown hair and brown eyes. Its slightly slightly darker than her skin color but it matched my ds's skin color exactly. My kids are black/white.

I love AG dolls, but I think its b/c I had like 5 growing up. I loved reading the stories.

I google "look like me doll" and then I think there was a livejournal where some one was discussing the subject and they had the list, then my DP found the last one (no clue what she searched) and I found the very last one in my google.

Sorry it's so confusing!

you can custom make waldorf dolls at:

http://www.joyswaldorfdolls.com/wald...olls/index.htm

there is an amazing variety of styles, hair textures, skin color etc. although custom dolls take longer than already made ones.

Thank you! Interesting!

Though, at least she has a normal variety of skin colors. My daughter has white skin but I am not going to buy from a company that purports to make special-order dolls but doesn't have anything darker than "tan". Basically, if you're white, we'll make a doll for you, if not, tough titties. Like it's so darn hard to find canvas or whatever the color of milk chocolate.

That is really annoying to me.

I will let you all know when my search ends. I want to put in my order in plenty of time for DD's second birthday.

Ooooh you guys, I found one really nice site. I am in touch with her, and I hope she writes back. Looks like really high-quality stuff and not too expensive either:

I love the cloth dolls, and she draws on the features so they look more like your own, unlike the Waldorf dolls or the ones that already have the faces on them.

... to ORDER.

Seriously.
Here is a link to a pic of the one she is using as the inspiration to make Prenna's doll... dh is Cambodian, I'm Irish/Greek (maybe?) lol... BambolettaDoll.

She has been searching fro a couple weeks to find one that had the right eyes, more almond than some not as almond as others, and found just the right skin tone... plus she makes the hair replaceable so that if (when) it starts to get too tangly, etc, you can replace it yourself...

Here's her website, she's AWESOME. Weeversibles. She also makes reversible clothes, hats, bags, all kindsa stuff...

The dolls are the Waldorf style dolls.
