Interactive toy designer Yury Gitman made My Little Beating Heart to help children relax, fall asleep and find comfort on trips away from home.

The soft pillow contains a microcomputer that generates a unique heartbeat with every use. The soothing beat is based on the heart at its most peaceful according to the teachings of yoga and meditation. My Little Beating Heart is $39 from Uncommon Goods.

We never used a Sleep Sheep but have friends who swear by them. My Little Beating Heart seems like an interesting take on the concept. Have any of you tried it out? Let us know.
