Home furnishings for a happy & safe home, where children can thrive

At IKEA, everything revolves around our vision to create a better everyday life for the many people, which includes creating a safer life at home. It only takes a few minutes to make life at home safer for children, and we want to give parents and caregivers accessible tools and tips they need to protect their little ones.

Little chef, cook like a pro!

Keeping safety in mind is the most important part of living with children, especially when they are in the kitchen. This play DUGTIK kitchen is just perfect for mini chefs. Role-playing in the kitchen helps children to develop social skills by imitating grown-ups and inventing their own roles. Safety latches were used to seal windows and to keep little fingers out of drawers and cabinets.

There’s no better place to make it happen than the dining table

Quality-time dinners feel like a breeze in this dining room, but it doesn’t end there. Keep everyone happy with their own activities, and just enjoy the company.

Create room to play & study

It’s important that children have a space where they can be free to play, learn and be themselves.

When it comes to safety testing, no product is exempted

When we develop products for children, we first try to see things the way children do. We know their world revolves around play, movement, imagination, relaxation, sleeping, eating and wellbeing. Each product goes through a long process of testing and is not launched until we are sure that it is safe. And even after our products are launched, we continue to evaluate and test them on a regular basis, and if needed we make improvements.
