One more option for lonely people who want cuddle but are too shy to hug or cuddle with a stranger is the hugging chair. It has a shape of a giant doll with very long arms which can be wrapped around the person sitting on it.
This chair is a product of the UniCare company and can be bought at an average price of $419. It is for those who miss a human’s warmth, and the company’s employees say that you can even talk to it. One of the chair’s functions is to play old Japanese music which is adored by elderly people. It’s clear that this chair was designed with the comfort of people in mind.
