How to get it
Do you dare sleep with a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Triceratops? Maybe when you find out that the motif on this soft duvet cover is printed with a technique that requires less water than conventional methods.
Made from 100% sustainably grown cotton, a natural and durable material that gets softer with every wash.
The fabric is tightly-woven, which makes the bedlinen extra durable.
The zipper keeps the duvet in place.
The zippers on our children's products have no pull tabs. This makes them safer for small children, but just as easy to open for older children.

Why do children love dinosaurs?
JÄTTELIK is for all small dinosaur lovers. Those who can easily best us adults when it comes to facts about the eating habits of Tyrranosaurus Rex, and who will tell you that a Velociraptor could run 50 kilometres per hour.
But what is it about dinosaurs that fascinates some children so much? What makes them memorise an incredible amount of facts – and very long names? We had the help of an expert to understand better.
Lina Bodestad is a licensed psychologist specialising in children’s development. She believes it is the combination of reality and fantasy that makes these prehistoric beings so intriguing.
“Dinosaurs have animal-like qualities that the child can relate to, but they also stimulate the imagination with their fairytale qualities. Like being able to fly like a dragon or having sharp monster teeth. When the lines between reality and fantasy become blurred, a child can feel a tingling sensation of curiosity and excitement.”
Making the world more understandable
But it's not all about diving into an exciting and magical world. For children aged three to six, there is often a need to systematise their surroundings, like when they sort their toys by colour.
“There is something thrilling for children of these ages about collecting facts and understanding how things are connected and can be compared and categorised. The world becomes a little more understandable", Lina explains.
Since details and facts are important for children, all the dinosaurs in JÄTTELIK are inspired by the real ones. Having this special knowledge gives them a first sense of truly mastering something – and it boosts their confidence.
“While you as a parent maybe don't know much, the child can take pride in knowing more than you about the differences between carnivores and herbivores some 65 million years ago.”
What is cotton?
Cotton is one of the world's most appreciated and used natural fibres. Textiles in cotton are soft, hardwearing and can be washed at high temperatures. They are also good at breathing and absorbing moisture – making them pleasant to wear close to the body. Today at IKEA we use more and more recycled cotton and strive to make sure that all the new cotton we use has been grown and produced with less and less amounts of pesticides, fertilisers and water.
Sleep is important!
Children need sleep so that the brain and body can grow and recover. That’s why the best thing you can do for your child is to create the conditions for good and comfortable sleeping habits. A quiet and cosy room with a good bed, a mattress that relieves pressure and soft, airy bedlinens is a good start. Maybe even a roller blind to block out sound and light. A good investment that helps you and your child sleep well.
