This Little Girl Sleeping On A Toy Train Is the Cutest Thing You’ll See All Day

What would you give to be able to sleep as deeply as this toddler who fell sound asleep while playing with her toy train? We probably would not look nearly as adorable–it’s tough to be as cute as a tiny toddler in a polka dot dress circling the room while sound asleep on a toy train–but that kind of sleep looks like so deep and refreshing. That little girl is down for the count. If I could sleep like that, I feel like I’d wake up ten IQ points smarter and an inch or two taller.

That kind of sleep may be out of reach of most adults, or at least most adults who have kids, but if anything could get a person there, it would be watching this video on a loop. It’s so cute, and also so deeply, hypnotically calming. The Rabbit Who Wanted to Fall Asleep can eat his heart out, because I don’t know anything that would make a person sleep as well as just watching this little girl circle the room until they doze off themselves.

The 14-month-old girl was playing with the train when apparently the slow, repetitive motion and the gentle chugging noise just put her right to sleep, and it’s adorable. Her parent writes:

“Vivienne was having a blast on her older brother’s train. She knows how to mount and dismount, etc., so I wasn’t worried when I went into the other room to respond to a work email. She became oddly quiet (you know, like when they’re being mischievous), so I quickly headed back to check on her. She had fallen fast asleep! Melted my heart :)”

The video was posted to Reddit’s Aww forum, where everyone was appropriately charmed. Aww, indeed. Vivienne is not the first toddler to succumb to the soothing sensation of the toy train. Apparently YouTube is full of adorable toddlers just snoozing away on these things.

Another Redditor helpfully located the toy train in question, which is good because this is really making me want a toy train. … for the baby. Yes. For the baby. I mean, if I were to ride it, I’d need two or three engines tied together.
