    Purrble Calming Toy Companion With Dynamic Heartbeat and Soothing Purr


    According to Byrne, social emotional play is key for kids right now. "Kids are around their peers again, and they have missed a lot of the developmental process over the past few years," he says. Toys like Purrble, which was recently voted one of Time magazine's 100 best inventions of 2021, can help children (and adults, too) deal with anxiety and find calm. The cuddly interactive toy has seven sensors that respond to touch. When someone picks the cute stuffed animal up, its "heartbeat" speeds up to 135 bpm but slows to a soft purr the more you pet it.
