Those who are interested in purchasing the replica must call Groupon directly to redeem it within the 90-day time frame, according to Groupon. The description from the official distributor SWIRGRO reads:
“Unlike busy adult children, life-sized 3D-printed models do not have hectic schedules. That means they’re there when Mom needs the most: all the time. And while your mom can’t claim this life-size replica of you as a dependent on her taxes, she will be able to take it to the movies, drive in the carpool lane, and tell it all about how Darlene is really more of a friend than a hairdresser.”
