Bring the ocean home with the BLÅVINGAD collection

Inspired by children’s interest in the ocean, the BLÅVINGAD collection is designed to spark play and curiosity about the world’s largest habitat, from babies to tweens. Recycled materials, including those made from ocean-bound plastic (OBP), are used where possible.

    It’s time to listen to the kids

    From our IKEA Kids’ Advisory Panel 2020, we learned that kids are very concerned about the ocean. Children want adults to listen to their fears because caring for the ocean is vital for the planet.

    Immersed in play

    At IKEA, we believe that play is critical for kids’ development and growth. The collection includes a submarine playset, cuddly soft toys and arts and crafts that will encourage curious little ones to discover the world.

    Drift away to deep dreams

    The BLÅVINGAD collection includes bed linen bursting with kids’ favourite marine creatures – turtles, penguins, and the majestic blue whale. Made from 100% cotton or cotton blends, your little one is guaranteed a restful slumber.

    Our ocean friends

    We used findings from our Kids’ Advisory Panel to create five cute friends based on kids’ favourite marine animals, including the dolphin and orca. They are the perfect cuddly companions for play and for comfort.

    Free to express yourself

    As kids get a little older, a space to call their own is essential to their personal odyssey. Expressive textiles, accessories and educational games create a safe haven for children to dive into their imaginations.

    Textiles for seaside to shore

    Accessories that consider the ocean

    From storage to cushion fillings, a variety of the BLÅVINGAD products are made from recycled polyester (wherever possible from ocean-bound plastic picked up from areas up to 50 km inland from our coastlines).
