Melty beadsSome kids momMy children have been using the Creatology melts beads, although the ikea beads are a little thinner than the Creatology ones , they still work great in the peg boards from Creatology. They are cost effective and have the basic color scheme that matches children markers . Would be nice to have more colour nuances like Creatology does. Kids spend hours making cool things. You will need parchment paper to iron theses with. This is not mentioned in the ikea beads box.4
Great fine motor practice, not great to ironMibswDoesn’t iron as well as the brand name set of Perler beads we were gifted, but I’m trying to limit the ironing and have them just use the boards to make pictures anyways. I bought some of the gray cafeteria trays I found at IKEA for them to work on so the beads don’t go everywhere. My four year old did this for a week and strengthened his hand enough to start finally holding his pencil etc with a better form. Happy kids, happy mom.4

BeadsRedchanI highly recommend this product to ages 7 and up it made them creative on their own way4
Good value for moneyMissKayOverall, this is a good value for money. The quality isn't as good as the name brand counterpart, and it does take longer to melt and have them fuse together nicely, but worth the money to see if you like beading before investing too much money.4
Works greatWRE6These melting beads work just as well ad the name brand and fit on the same trays and patterns5

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastic

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastic

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!


What is PET plastic?

PET plastic is perhaps best known for its use in beverage bottles, yet suits a lot of food and beverage packaging since it’s approved for food contact. Like other plastics, PET is largely made from oil-based raw materials, but today there are even better opportunities to use both renewable raw materials, like corn and sugar cane, and to recycle the plastic several times. At IKEA, recycled PET becomes many things – from storage boxes to soft filling in pillows and quilts.


Safer play

Children are the most important people in the world. That's why their safety is always our highest priority. By performing risk assessments and adhering to the strictest safety standards, we minimize most known risks. But we're not content stopping there. We also insist that all our toys undergo and pass tough tests. We do all this so you can trust that our play furniture is stable and our toys for babies do not contain small parts, long strings or sharp edges. That we only use safe materials goes without saying.
