Children who have trouble falling asleep at night will love the empathetic 'Sleeping I,' an absolutely adorable nightlight from designer Jeongdae Kim. The timed device starts at full brightness for when parents leave their children's rooms, and slowly gets dimmer while giving off the appearance of a cartoon character falling asleep.

The light is shaped like a squat cartoon chick, with lights that look like two wide eyes and a beak-like nose that functions as a wind-up timer. Parents turn the timer to set the length of the nightlight's activity, and then leave it be. Over the next hour or so, the device dims by closing plastic "eyelids" over the lights, making it look as though the Sleeping I is falling asleep in sync with its ward.
