The Dou-Doods were born out of both mine and my daughters love for snuggling.
My first memories of being a little person were about my 'doudou'. I loved this blankie more than anything in the world and insisted on dragging it around with me everywhere I went. I did everything with it. It was my world, my security blanket, my comfort item.
After a very long struggle of trying to conceive and keep a baby within me, our little lady was finally born. We were so grateful to have this perfect little babe in our lives, I just wanted to wrap her up in love and cuddles so nothing could ever harm her. So she had a 'doudou' from an early age so she would always feel comforted even when I wasn't around her. Especially as I felt so attached to the memories of mine. She absolutely loved it and took to it quickly as she loves anything soft and fuzzy. In fact the fuzzier the better in her world.
Watching her grow and her mind develop I realised she needed a comforter that wasn't just a blanket but also a best friend.
As like mine did, it goes everywhere with her on all her great adventures, so I felt it needed to be it's own person. Something that goes from being an inanimate flat snuggle blankie in baby's first year to becoming a much loved best friend/adventurer in their toddler years.
Being a little bit of a crafty mama, I decided to design and make something to suit her creative nature, and thus the first Dou-Dood was born. He was called Mr Pink.
Now I could start creating my little gang of loveable cuddle buddies. Our little lady was ecstatic as now there were even more fuzzy little friends for her to snuggle at bedtime.
We hope you love your new Dood as much as we have loved making them.
And then there were 3...
