We Named Our Shark BruceSuzInPhillyBruce, our IKEA shark, is wonderful. Sometimes he's a body pillow or makes watching TV extra comfy. He is such a big hit that we've actually got three now.5
So cuteRalphaneeMy son loves this. Set this out with his Christmas gifts. Gorgeous huge and soft.5
Super adorable and amazingly durable!Happy Mastiff ParentWe originally bought one of these as a gag to see what our mastiff would do as she loves plush toys and dog toys suffered failure within a day. We also loved IKEA's safety factor in that the eyes are embroidered, not plastic, so they are puppy safe as well as kiddo safe. This shark is almost as big as she is. She immediately fell in love with it and carries it with her everywhere. Little does she know that we have a collection of them in the closet because we figured they'd fall apart fairly fast not being a dog toy. In 2 years we've had to replace one because her chompers finally did enough damage that it tore. These are amazing toys and absolutely adorable to boot. Moo would be lost without her giant fishy. I can highly recommend these as both an adorable toy and one that definitely lasts.5
most stolen white elephant gift!tiffy1080bought this for a white elephant that included both adults and children. it was stolen by both an adult and a child and there were almost tears. highly recommended purchase for any age.5
Too cute.JantijeI am a big fan of IKEA's stuffed animals. They are made from soft fabric & filled with soft stuffing. Eyes & other features are embroidered on, so there are no choking hazards for small children. The shark, in particular, is probably one of the largest stuffies they have available. But he's not at all scary quite the opposite. I think he'd charm any small boy or girl - & a lot of adults.5
Land Shark!Who Doesnt Love StuffiesClever of our local Ikea to 'randomly' place said sharks around their store in unusual places. We could not resist the adorable shark's pleas to take them home with us!!5
What a superb sharkiidaI got one for my brother, and he immidiately fell in love with him. Our new family member's name is Huihai. The design is very cute, and he looks like a very polite shark. The materials and seams seem pretty high-quality. I like the fact that the eyes are embroidered, since plastic or glass ones would have made hugging the shark less comfortable. This shark is the perfect size for hugging and very soft. I love him so much I also had to get one for myself.5
His name is Tristen.Scifigirl74Tristen is the best boy, he has a best friend Istar the monkey. Tristen is hoping for a plush kitten for Christmas. His day job is pillow, therapist, gamer, cook and all around awesome dude.5
Best Co-Pilot and Study-BuddyBlahajForPresident2020I impulse bought my first shark in August to keep me company on my road trip to college, and he has been an indispensable asset to my studies! He squishes up so I can sneak him into the study rooms in the library, he is a better pillow than any actual pillow I’ve ever bought, and his funny face always cheers me up no matter what grade I got on exams! Yesterday I made the 1.5 hour trip to buy another so he can have a friend, and I came home with both the full and small sized sharks! Who would have thought that the best thing Ikea ever made would be their stuffed toys!5
Best Shark Ever!AdwenzelMy now 7 year old son has had this shark for at least 4 years. He’s obsessed with it, sleeps with it every night, and it goes on every road trip with us. It washes extremely well and is still in great condition. We did have to add some more stuffing a few months back, but I’m going to say that’s our fault and not because of a subpar product! We are actually going to buy some stuffed animals for our girls for Christmas this year since this one has held up so well!5
Soft, durableRc111Bought this shark for my friends 2 year old son and he loves it. He wrestles with it and lays on it for a pillow.5

The story of a broken eye and what it taught us

The IKEA store in Helsinki, Finland, was full of customers that day back in 1997. Being a textile technologist at Children’s IKEA at the time, Carina Ingelsten ran a course about safety for a group of IKEA co-workers. ”I lifted up a teddy bear and pulled on the legs and arms to show how well they are sewn in place. When I pulled on the plastic eye, something happened that shouldn't – the eye came off”, says Carina. This was a major setback for Children's IKEA, but it was a setback that would lead to important safety improvements.  Read More
All soft toys were removed from the store as Carina tried to call her colleagues in Sweden. ”It was a Saturday, so it wasn't that easy to get a hold of people, but in the end Jörgen Svensson, my manager at Children's IKEA, answered and we succeeded in stopping global sales of our soft toys”.

Major consequences

Jörgen remembers the call. The fact that the eye came off despite all risk analyses and safety checks was very serious. Still, in hindsight, he still sees that it led to something really good. ”Thanks to what happened, we learned to systematize safety work even more. We established clearer procedures and areas of responsibility”.

More personal expression

The incident also led to the decision to not use plastic eyes at all. Embroidered eyes were not only safer, they also proved to give more character and personality to the toys. Annie Huldén, a designer who has created many soft toys over the years, agrees. ”The eyes are very important for a soft toy and plastic eyes easily seem too symmetrical and stale, while embroidered eyes are easier to vary in terms of the design, the size of pupils and the eyelashes.” Soft toys at Children's IKEA are loved by children throughout the world. It's a loved friend to play with and find comfort with - and which parents can always feel secure about.
