The automaker tested out over 30 of its engine sounds on a group of infants to see which one was the most effective, offering parents the chance to try out the soothing revs on its website

Parents of newborns are willing to try almost anything to get their child to sleep. One method that works for many is taking the baby for a ride in the car. With that in mind, Honda has created a plush car toy meant to lull infants to sleep with the sounds of a car engine.

The automaker is calling the toy the “Sound Sitter,” and takes the form of a plush toy car with a speaker inside that makes the sound of a Honda car engine, which the brand claims mimics the sound waves babies become used to while inside the womb and find soothing. Honda tested out 12 different car motors with infants, and the winning sound was from the engine of its Acura NSX supercar.

Honda currently does not have plans to market the toy. However, consumers who do want to try out the engine sounds on their newborns can access them here.
