Kid’s favorite!Nancy“Bruce” has made quiet a splash at our house. He spends his days wrestling small boys and eating all the play food in sight. But not fish- they are “friends not food”, afterall. After a few weeks of daily play Bruce is still in looking good. He has lost a little fluff, can’t decided if that is result of his new “diet” or the wrestling. Either way, he has inspired hours of fun and play. Worth every cent!5

Dog toyKathyWe bought this for our dog since she is not rough with toys and she loves it! It's bigger than she is, a 30lbs daushund mix, but she loves laying with it and dragging it around and playing with it, held up really well for not being a dog toy.5

For the love of sharks...BonnieOur grandson loves sharks and loved this very cuddly version! Because he plays with it many times each day, his beloved shark is beginning to flatten and lose it's full shape...maybe could use a bit more "stuffing" as more are born in the factory!4
We love this shark!!rachel4twobought by my 13 and 16 year old kids... Its a huggable pillow too. Its sparsely stuffed so not sure it will last for years but love the design and size.4

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

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.

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.
