LondonUKThis is fun for my cat to run after and fetch. It doesn't roll too far as it's not exactly spherical but slightly oval like. I have rated it four stars because the label is difficult to remove and left a sharp edge that, whilst suitable for a cat, could cause issues for a young child.4

Lovely toyC1419Very cute toy that is easy for a baby to hold and the rattle keeps them entertained.5
Great value ballJen91Lovely colourful ball, our baby loves playing with it. We previously had an earlier version which was slightly smaller and easier for her too hold so slightly disappointed that the product has changed. Still great value for money4
Great valueBushySoft, colourful with rattle5
Ideal toy, especially with the bell insideGaz62With the addition of the small bell inside this ball, it is an ideal attractant for our little one. She enjoys chasing around after it then brings it straight back for you to throw it off again. The bell makes it easier to find if it went down the back of the sofa and there is as much fun watching her trying to do that as there is in the ball itself. The material is almost indestructible and given that it is held more often by fairly sharp teeth, stands up well to battering and bruising. Totally recommended if you have a hyperactive puppy as we do. She loves IKEA soft toys and they should think about releasing their own range. They would fly out the door.5
Perfect for 10 month babyNew mum of onePerfect size for rolling or being squished by baby hands. Also the long label allows him to swirl it round his head in excitement! Physical development and hours of fun in one go!5
Lovely colours and soft.DaisyMooNot in use as baby not here yet but will certainly be used well!4
BallKirawr26Bought this for my dog as I find the new born toys are perfect to what she likes she’s not yet destroyed and has a little rattle ball inside5
PerfectWilsmumMy dog loves these. She's a labrador so toys need to be hard wearing and not fall apart. She carries these around (sometimes 3 at once), plays fetch and sleeps with them in her bed.Obvs can't comment on their effectiveness for a baby which is what they are really for!5

Play turns us into human beings

Look, touch, push, lift… play is a way for your baby to develop their senses, to get orientated and to try to understand their surroundings. With the KLAPPA toys collection we wanted to develop toys which stimulate this journey of discovery and contribute to the important interaction between you and your baby. From a social context, the child grows through play, and becomes a human being.

When a new born baby’s eyes open for the first time, the central nervous system is still not yet fully developed. The eyes cannot see a distance of more than 20-40 cm, about as far away as the nursing mother's face. But by interacting with a variety of impressions, like colours, shapes, touches and sounds, the development of the small child's brain is stimulated. This is explained by researcher Krister Svensson, who has studied children's development, play and learning for many years. "But resting is just as important as the stimulation. The brain occasionally needs rest from the impressions in order to sort it all and relate everything to what it previously registered."

The details entice play

Toys adapted to the small baby can contribute to these important impressions which stimulate the brain's development. But what is it that really makes a certain toy enticing to the child? "Often it's something that stands out in their surroundings and draws attention to itself", says Krister. "Maybe black dots on a yellow giraffe or the sound of a rattle." Designer Malin Unnborn, who designed the KLAPPA toys collection, wanted to find those specific details that could create curiosity and lead to play. "For example, for the picture book and the ball I used colours with strong contrasts and fabrics with different structures, such as glossy and matte, soft and rough." On the snuggle blanket, the play mat and the baby gym, Malin made shark fins, ears and other details that stick out just enough for small and curious fingers to pinch them.

Toys create interaction

KLAPPA became an entire world of imaginative animals, plants and planets to explore. ”Maybe it’s not that important for the baby that it's a crab looking up at the edge of the play mat”, Malin says. "But it can entice an older child to play with their younger sibling." Krister feels that toys also play an important social function in the child's development. "They act as tools for social interaction between you and your child, and it's you who gives the toys life and meaning." For example, by naming a rattle 'a yellow giraffe', you can talk about it, and when you take turns holding the giraffe, an understanding in the child arises as to how they themselves are a part of a context. Play is based on interaction and is quite simply a necessity for a human being’s development, says Krister. "To become a human being requires interaction with other people."

Material

What is polyester?

Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. Originally, all the world's polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable, but at IKEA we are now gradually switching to only using recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. The nice thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
