best thing at ikeaelizafishI bought this for my self as a 21st birthday present. It is the best thing I have purchased for my self in a long time. Not only does it have the correct anatomical features of a shark for the most part including 5-gill slits per side, but it is also adorable. Perfect cute face ideal to put in any picture with great results. He is so cuddly, super soft, huggable, machine washable, and a perfect sleeping buddy and doubles as a pillow to use for studying during now online school. Can't go wrong with this purchase for shark lovers at any age! You will fall in love with yours in every way! Cant recommend more. Mines name is Sohrab, he is the best!5
big, soft and shaped like a friendhika98I received this as a gift for my 22nd birthday and it's perfect. Maybe it's weird to say but my favourite part is its mouth; It's just so cute! Quarantine isn't so bad when you have blahaj.5

My New Best FriendcaitlingaultThis shark is so fun! Great size. I am 19 and sleep with this every night. I named him Sharkquille O'Neal.5
Best plush I’ve ever ownedAngeIicaIt seems that everyone is saying that they bought this for their child/grandchild, but I bought this plush for myself LOL It’s been a year since I made this purchase, and ever since I’ve slept with this plush every night. It is extremely cozy and huggable. My only complaint is that after a few months, the stuffing spread out a bit and there is no longer any stuffing in the area between the tail and body.5

The story of a broken eye and what it taught us

The IKEA store in Helsinki, Finland, was full of customers that day back in 1997. Being a textile technologist at Children’s IKEA at the time, Carina Ingelsten ran a course about safety for a group of IKEA co-workers. ”I lifted up a teddy bear and pulled on the legs and arms to show how well they are sewn in place. When I pulled on the plastic eye, something happened that shouldn't – the eye came off”, says Carina. This was a major setback for Children's IKEA, but it was a setback that would lead to important safety improvements.  Read More
All soft toys were removed from the store as Carina tried to call her colleagues in Sweden. ”It was a Saturday, so it wasn't that easy to get a hold of people, but in the end Jörgen Svensson, my manager at Children's IKEA, answered and we succeeded in stopping global sales of our soft toys”.

Major consequences

Jörgen remembers the call. The fact that the eye came off despite all risk analyses and safety checks was very serious. Still, in hindsight, he still sees that it led to something really good. ”Thanks to what happened, we learned to systematize safety work even more. We established clearer procedures and areas of responsibility”.

More personal expression

The incident also led to the decision to not use plastic eyes at all. Embroidered eyes were not only safer, they also proved to give more character and personality to the toys. Annie Huldén, a designer who has created many soft toys over the years, agrees. ”The eyes are very important for a soft toy and plastic eyes easily seem too symmetrical and stale, while embroidered eyes are easier to vary in terms of the design, the size of pupils and the eyelashes.” Soft toys at Children's IKEA are loved by children throughout the world. It's a loved friend to play with and find comfort with - and which parents can always feel secure about.
