A pillow designed in the shape of a woman’s lap has become one of the best selling Christmas gifts in Japan.

The novelty item is made from foam and comes complete with a mini-skirt reports Sky News.

Makers the Trane Corporation insist the pillow provides healing and not excitement for customers.

Priced at around £45, the life-sized gift is also proving popular as an addition at office parties during the season.

It was aimed at younger males but has also received significant interest from older men.
