The subject of this article or section is part of Children's Week, a seasonal event that lasts one week. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next year, but there are no guarantees.

Willy, the baby floating eye.

Sleepy Willy's eye beam

Willy zaps a rat!

Sleepy Willy teaches you to summon Willy, a baby floating eye battle pet.


This item is a possible reward from the quests Alliance 15 [70] Back to the Orphanage and Horde 15 [70] Back to the Orphanage which both begin with Orphan Matron Mercy in Shattrath City's Lower City during the Children's Week seasonal event.


Willy has a non-combat pet ability (also possessed by Lil KT, Toxic Wasteling and Scorchling pets) in that he can kill almost any creature in the game classified as a "critter" (rats, cows, etc). Willy will automatically attack a random, single critter that is within a 10-yard radius, and the attack occurs once every 3-minutes (if no critter is within the attack radius then that attack is simply skipped at the appropriate time and the timer resets). The timer resets when Willy is first summoned (or unsummoned/re-summoned), and continues counting as long as Willy remains summoned. He also has a tendency to fall asleep and wake up with a start.

The other two item reward options from the quest line are [Elekk Training Collar] and [Egbert's Egg]. Only one of these can be chosen per year, but when the event repeats itself next year you will be able to choose another.


Note that Willy has a single eye; many players assume he is a pun on the phrase "One Eyed Willy", humorous slang for a penis. It is possible, although incredibly unlikely, that the name "Sleepy Willy" is a reference to the pirate One-Eyed Willy from the movie The Goonies.
