Product details

Your child can dress up the soft toy when it's time to play and remove the space suit after an exciting space adventure that calls for a wash.

Made of 100% recycled polyester that is soft and gentle for sensitive skin.

The soft toys in the AFTONSPARV collection fit in the spaceship, so they can easily reach all the planets in the universe.

Created in collaboration with children in playful sessions where they express their thoughts and ideas. Their opinions influence our decisions and make our products better. After all, they’re the experts.

With the space-inspired toys, textiles and lamps in the AFTONSPARV collection, we want to spark curiosity and inspire children.

A perfect gift for children who are fascinated by and love all things in space.

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.

We know our soft toys should handle many years of love. That’s why we’ve chosen comfy materials, embroidered eyes, performed rigorous washing tests – and ensured that they’re free from harmful chemicals.

Is it possible to make plastic hug-friendly?

We want to reduce the amount of new material in our soft toys. Using recycled polyester as a filling, and thereby giving new life to used plastic, is one way. Our new AFTONSPARV soft toys take us another step forward on this exciting journey. We’ve only used recycled polyester in the fabric, filling and all the threads – without compromising on safety or quality of course.

Space is infinite – just like the imagination

With the AFTONSPARV collection, we invite children to the largest playground ever. Space. An exciting, mystical and inspiring world with lots of room for creativity.

You probably did it as a child too: gazed into endless sky and fantasised about what is out there among all stars and planets. Maybe it’s something children always have done, just like the children between ages 3 and 7 who participated in one of our workshops before we started working with AFTONSPARV. “We were surprised by how much knowledge the children had about our solar system and space”, says designer Marta Krupińska. “But, since science hasn’t discovered everything there is to know about space, there’s also lots of room for fantasy and own thoughts.”

A space rocket that runs on imagination

The children’s ideas and interesting thoughts became the starting point for Marta when she designed AFTONSPARV. A matching collection that can ignite imagination and play in everyday life with cuddly space friends, textiles, lamps – and a rocket made of cardboard! “It’s big enough to fit several children, and best of all: the only thing they need to travel to new exciting places is imagination.” Some of the planets may be inhabited by aliens, several children suggested. “They had so many thoughts about aliens and how they might look. Most of the time, they were kind, and so are our aliens.”

Fall asleep to glistening planets

When the space rocket is back on Earth and playtime is over for the day, it’s time to wind down and get ready for bed. The adventures can continue in the bedtime story and the dreams. Because when the light is turned off, the planet pattern on the AFTONSPARV curtain will glow. What was that? Maybe a spaceship full of friendly green aliens. Or a shooting star, so you can make a wish…

Quality

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.

Function solution

Soft toys to hug, again and again

We know our soft toys should handle many years of love. That’s why we’ve chosen comfy materials, embroidered eyes, performed rigorous washing tests – and ensured that we test them for harmful chemicals. Simple to keep clean and fresh since they can be machined washed.

Form design process

Created together with children

Children are the most important people in the world and we’re curious to hear what they have to say since we create products for them! Therefore, we invite children to creative and playful sessions where they get to participate in our product development. Here they can express themselves freely and draw, show or tell us what is important to them. Their opinions matter and make our products better. After all, they’re the experts!

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

“When designing for children, I let my inner child take the lead. So I got in an imaginary space rocket with my design team and we flew away on an adventure. Before the trip we met enthusiastic children who told us everything about what we would encounter among the stars ¬– and assured us that aliens are nice creatures. I hope that the discoveries we brought back to Earth will go hand in hand with the unlimited imaginations of children and their vast knowledge of space.”
