21 Examples of Sleep-Oriented Toys

From Womb-Mimicking Dolls to Toddler-Tracking Teddies

— July 14, 2014 — Life-Stages
These examples of sleep-oriented toys show just how practical designers and companies have become when creating playthings for children. Targeting adults as much as kids, these innovations knock two birds with one stone in that they provide a fun distraction for the latter while also encouraging them to fall asleep almost immediately.

Many of these examples of sleep-oriented toys focus on multi-sensory elements to provide a soothing and safe environment for the child. For instance, the Womb Doll mimics the sounds of a mother's womb for newborns while the Twilight Turtle Tunes projects colorful lights to turns dark room ceilings starry night skies. Other toys help parents track their children's sleeping habits to ensure they get the best rest they can.
