My dog loves this toyLauraI bought this toy for my puppy and he loves it! He likes the raddle inside the ball, the only thing is he ripped it so I bought him the same ball again4
Cute!!!DeliaMy baby loves it. I can truly say it’s the first toy he goes to. And it’s always in the car, he gets very entertained!5
Perfect!BlueFlowersMomPerfect toy for crawling infants and toddlers. Absolutely perfect design - bright colors, soft material that feels minky not chalky and cheap, and perfect size and softness. I never worry if I will hit my toddler too hard by accident when playing toss. It rattles to boot! I've hand washed it multiple times and air dried and looks and rattles as good as new.5

Creative BallToeJoeI purchased this wonderful ball for my 1 year old grand nephew. It is a favorite of his. Its colorful, soft, and huggable! Washable too...5
Perfect for babies and toddlersDenise2001I have several of these and they are a great indoor ball for little ones. They can be thrown, rolled or chewed on. I prefer the old color scheme and wish it didn’t have the rattle inside.4
Baby loves it!BashopperI bought this for my 2 month old baby and he loves it! When I first gave it to him he stared at the patterns for awhile and then for about an hour he swatted at it to make it jingle. He doesn't give many other toys that much attention! I love that it's nice and soft so when he's ready to start throwing or kicking balls it won't do any damage in the house. It'll be easy for him to grab and chew on in the coming months too. What a fun toy! Thanks Ikea!5

Play turns us into human beings

Look, touch, push, lift… play is a way for your baby to develop their senses, to get orientated and to try to understand their surroundings. With the KLAPPA toys collection we wanted to develop toys which stimulate this journey of discovery and contribute to the important interaction between you and your baby. From a social context, the child grows through play, and becomes a human being.

When a new born baby’s eyes open for the first time, the central nervous system is still not yet fully developed. The eyes cannot see a distance of more than 7⅞-15¾", about as far away as the nursing mother's face. But by interacting with a variety of impressions, like colors, shapes, touches and sounds, the development of the small child's brain is stimulated. This is explained by researcher Krister Svensson, who has studied children's development, play and learning for many years. "But resting is just as important as the stimulation. The brain occasionally needs rest from the impressions in order to sort it all and relate everything to what it previously registered."

The details entice play

Toys adapted to the small baby can contribute to these important impressions which stimulate the brain's development. But what is it that really makes a certain toy enticing to the child? "Often it's something that stands out in their surroundings and draws attention to itself", says Krister. "Maybe black dots on a yellow giraffe or the sound of a rattle." Designer Malin Unnborn, who designed the KLAPPA toys collection, wanted to find those specific details that could create curiosity and lead to play. "For example, for the picture book and the ball I used colours with strong contrasts and fabrics with different structures, such as glossy and matte, soft and rough." On the snuggle blanket, the play mat and the baby gym, Malin made shark fins, ears and other details that stick out just enough for small and curious fingers to pinch them.

Toys create interaction

KLAPPA became an entire world of imaginative animals, plants and planets to explore. ”Maybe it’s not that important for the baby that it's a crab looking up at the edge of the play mat”, Malin says. "But it can entice an older child to play with their younger sibling." Krister feels that toys also play an important social function in the child's development. "They act as tools for social interaction between you and your child, and it's you who gives the toys life and meaning." For example, by naming a rattle 'a yellow giraffe', you can talk about it, and when you take turns holding the giraffe, an understanding in the child arises as to how they themselves are a part of a context. Play is based on interaction and is quite simply a necessity for a human being’s development, says Krister. "To become a human being requires interaction with other people."
