About Happy Sleepies

Happy Sleepies are the signature and namesake items of our collaboration and shop; they are all hand sewn from an original pattern by Magda based on Marc’s drawing of a topsy-turvy creature. Learn more on the dedicated Happy Sleepies project page.

Each Happy Sleepy is unique, one of a kind, and handmade by us.

Stuffed with high quality polyester filling to be soft yet firm and stay that way, based on many years of personal research in cuddling, squeezing, lumbar propping, and general livingroom loving of prototype designs.

Making Process and Child Safety

This art toy is perfectly safe for children of all ages, including infants. The toy can be hand washed with mild detergent. You can use a machine for the rinse cycle and spin cycle to get the excess water out, and dry well while resting on its back. Made in a pet free, smoke free studio.

Happy Sleepies are soft, abstract animal toys so named because held one way they look like they have smiling closed eyes, and when turned upside down their eyes look sealed with sleep.

They are based on a drawing by Marc Ngui of a gut bacteria in the graphic novel Enter Avariz. Happy Sleepies always remember their freedom to choose how to be. The outside world can be a happy-sad place, but internally we can choose a happy-sleepy dichotomy that focuses on a meditative, accepting, or detached state when things get difficult.
