Falling asleep at night can be hard. You might have thoughts racing through your head, keeping you up, plus harsh blue lights from screens are not conducive to catching some Zs. Well, you’re one lucky duck because there is a night light on the market that can do all the thinking for you while providing a soothing warm glow. Meet the Existential Crisis Duck night light.

As the product’s site comically explains: “It was, in all regards, an average day in Duck’s average life when he suddenly asked himself ‘Who am I?’ Since then, he’s been thinking a lot about the meaning of life, wondering if there is something more for a duck than just quacking…”

This squishy lamp makes the perfect quirky nighttime companion full of personality and it packs a lot of function in its compact design. The animal inspiration of this wireless lamp also makes it an ideal gift for both children and adults. Made of soft, pliable silicone, this lazy duck can be placed wherever it's needed. Not only is the material soft to the touch—and can retain its shape no matter how much you knead or squish it—it is also highly durable, and can withstand water and falls. Additionally, the cartoonish appearance of this bright bird makes it look like it is deep in thought after lying down for a nap.

To set it up, you simply charge it with the provided USB cable for a couple of hours. Then, place the duck on your nightstand or desk and tap its body. A gentle yellow light will glow from the prone body, which you can adjust in brightness by tapping more to achieve a weak, medium, or strong light. One of the best features of the lamp is that once its on, the automatic timer will turn off the light after 30 minutes, giving you enough time to settle into bed before it darkens.

This quirky night light is currently being sold by MUID on Amazon.
