Insomniacs longing for a good night’s rest might be glad that “Hug & Dream Minnie Mouse”, a soft toy will start selling on the market from November. Unlike ordinary toys, this one has the effect to comfort and soothes one to sleep.
And what has Minnie mouse got to do with a good night’s sleep (@^o^@)
“Hug & Dream Minnie Mouse”, is a collaboration work between Japanese toymaker Takara Tomy and cognitive & respiratory specialist from Showa University School of Medicine. Minnie is fitted with a mechanism mimicking the breathing pattern of human. She “breathes in” once every 5 seconds. While hugging her, the rhythm breathing is expected to calm and soothes and naturally induces one to sleep.
She came with a melody option where you can turn it on if you find that having the music is more relaxed.
And it even came with an auto sleep function in which breathing motion is automatically switched off after certain time.
For those who had a hard time getting into sleep, “Hug & dream minnie mouse” could help perhaps (－z－)……..ｚｚｚ
