This article first appeared on Pop Sugar and parents are going crazy for Lulla, a seemingly magical doll that helps kids to fall asleep and stay asleep. Parents are going crazy to get this doll and a bidding war has broken out on EBay taking the price up to an unbelievable $350 for one doll! What do you think? Would you pay $350 for a doll like this?
There are several different methods for easing your child to sleep, from books that make them feel tired to long, relaxing bedtime routines that calm them down. Although different methods work for different families, the Lulla Doll may be the closest thing so far to a universal answer to the question, “How do I get my child to fall asleep and stay asleep?”
Eyrún Eggertsdóttir, a mom of two little boys who studied psychology, created Lulla — a cuddly, plush doll that helps ease children to sleep through calming breathing and heartbeat sounds — and demand has skyrocketed. The initial release of the first 5,000 unisex dolls sold out right away, and a bidding war on eBay pushed the price of one doll from its usual $71 to a hefty $350.
Due to the overwhelming response, Eyrún is now working harder than ever to get the seemingly magical Lulla doll — which has been said to work like a charm but sounds a bit like Darth Vader — out to other families that need it. Watch the video above to learn more about Lulla, and preorder your doll on Indiegogo.
