Snoozy the Sloth, a stuffed toy that really breathes

Justin Blinder gave birth to "Snoozy the Sloth", a stuffed toy that has a real diaphragm inside that allows it to breath, going so far as to exhale breath from its latex-glove lungs onto the neck of whomever is nuzzling it.

Justin made Snoozy for a class at Parsons; I bet it won't be long before he is mass produced. For now, though, I like that Snoozy is a one-off, held together with makeshift parts, like a premature robot just clinging to life.

  1. Ah, but is it’s breath warm enough to be convincing at any time but midsummer?

    I like the idea a lot more than the crying/wetting dolls, but then again I’m a guy so I’m biased.

    Then again, if I want something to breathe in my ear, I’ll pick up a cat.
