Did you know that pandas are very shy and avoid places where people live? But this soft toy is anything but shy. It loves to be with children, play, explore and sleep snuggly close by.
Even though the panda is big and strong, there are only a few left. All of them live in China where they eat bamboo all day long. But the panda also loves to sleep a lot, so even if it's shy, it would love to cuddle up in your bed.
All soft toys are good at hugging, comforting and listening and are fond of play and mischief. In addition, they are reliable and tested for safety.

Long live the wild animals
The tiger, orangutan and other wild animals fascinate children of all ages. Through the textiles and soft toys in the URSKOG and DJUNGELSKOG collections, we can get to know them up close. In reality, many of them are threatened by human advancement. But it is possible to change. In our textiles we have chosen to use materials like sustainably grown cotton, lyocell and polyester made from recycled plastic. It’s our tribute to all beautiful animals threatened by extinction.
Long live the wild animals
DJUNGELSKOG soft toys collection is full of friends to play with and – sometimes – get consolation from. But it has one more important purpose: to highlight wild animals that are endangered due to human activities. Like the orangutan. It lives in Borneo's rainforests where fires and deforestation have reduced their numbers. But it's possible to reverse the trend.
Martin Petri, who works with sustainability at IKEA, was in a rainforest in Borneo in 2016. It was hot and humid. The sound from surrounding wildlife resonated intensively in all directions. High up in a tree, he caught a glimpse of an orangutan dwelling – they were back.
"In 1983, a forest fire destroyed 18,500 hectares of rainforest", says Martin.
"When Ingvar Kamprad, founder of IKEA, heard about it he wanted to contribute to the restoration of the rainforest. That's why, since 1998, we've financed the project ‘Sow a seed’ which has led to more than 12,500 hectares of rainforest being replanted."
Children care and want to learn more
"Wild animals provide a sense of freedom, in particular for children living in urban environments", says child psychologist Barbie Clarke, who has extensively researched about children and their development.
The natural habitats of the orangutan, panda, tiger and other DJUNGELSKOG animals are threatened. This concerns many children.
"But they’re also curious and want to learn more about the animals", explains Barbie.
That’s why DJUNGELSKOG includes a number of books, too.
More rainforest means more orangutans
Humans have the possibility to restore the natural habitats of animals and the biological diversity which provides balance in nature ─ just like in the rainforest Martin Petri visited.
“’Sow a seed’ is one of the world’s largest rainforest projects, and has given involved researchers valuable knowledge which will be useful for other rainforests which have burned down or been felled", explains Martin.
More rainforest in Borneo means more orangutans swinging between the trees with their long arms. What a beautiful sight.
Sure, they’re cute but are they safe? Absolutely!
You can rest assured knowing that all our children’s products live up to the highest health and safety standards. We put our toys to the test – up against the toughest in the world (much tougher than any two-year-old). All so you can worry less and they can play more.
