It’s a type of bedding items and it’s a hugging pillow that you hug it while you sleep. The majority of them are the pillar-shaped one, bean-shaped one, or stuffed-animal-shaped one. In Japan, daki-makura (hugging pillow) with an animated character printed on it is popular. There is also a good ergonomic daki-makura.
