Young Boy's Reaction To Getting A 'Daddy Doll' Will Break Your Heart (Video)

When one father had to work away from his home — and his young daughter — for an extended period of time, it was Mommy to the rescue.

The little girl's creative mother, Lauren Martin, crafted a soft doll for her youngster that boasted a screen-printed picture of her father's face to fill in for Dad when he was away.

Today, Martin's personal project is a successful Australian company called Wish U Were Here.

In the video up top, a young boy's absent his father (who had to leave to work on a pipeline in Western Australia) receives one of the daddy dolls from his mother.

The little boy's reaction is too sweet — and if you're anything like me, it will make you miss your own daddy.
