What will this machine do?

Criei esta máquina porque me sinto sozinha quando vou dormir.


Why was it invented?

Eu criei esta máquina para quando for dormir ter uma companhia.

"A máquina tem dois botões um azul e outro laranja, quando carrego no botão azul o monstro brilha e no laranja o boneco canta. O boneco tem um bolso para guardar coisas".
