How about "like parents, like kids"

I think it's hard to decide, for your sentence can both refer to the similarity in their appearance and their character, so...:)

The kid is like a mirror image of his parent.

(Or) The kid is a spitting image of his parent.

理论上, 短语“spit and image”也可用在此,详见 http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-spi1.htm ,只是,刚刚请教了一位美国留学生,她说“spit and image”很少见。
