The ‘Hug and Dream Minnie Mouse‘ is a doll that can help you to get a good night’s sleep. A mechanism inside makes it seem as though it is taking slow, deep breaths, for a calming effect on the person holding it.

Gizmodo reports that Takara Tomy worked with cognitive and respiratory science researcher Ikuo Honma to develop the toy. The person hugging Minnie will begin to match its breathing rhythm, which will help them fall asleep. Ideal for young children, the toy also features a muted color scheme.
