Iron beadsMOLLY K.My kids are having a great time with the beads and making creative art projects5
Creative momentsChristina W.All my kids boys and girls ages 5-17 have all enjoyed making designs on these. It offers opportunities even for older ones to be creative and relive moments of childhood fun. Littles can spend hours on these boards! I bought 2 sets 10 years ago and bought refill beads as we needed them. Pretty decent lifespan/use of the boards. I have replaced the both board sets one 1x in the past 10 years. The heat of the irons will eventually warp the boards.5
Well madeAmyPegs are thicker than those that come with fuse beads, so the boards will likely hold up better.5
OkaySamantha S.It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good it’s great that they give you option like how the circle allows you do do ones I’m intersections while the sqaure ones can let you do them in rows , but some of the pegs melted(it’s plastic so what do u expect) also now my peg board is blended I think it bends do to heat so it’s kind of hard to make it not fall.4
Love itWendyLove it5
Great for kids!TIFFANYI was a little worried because there were no explicit directions on how to iron the beads but I figured it out and it turned out great-super fun activity for the family.5
Good price. Hours of fun.MARIE-ANNEGood price. Hours of fun.4
good value for money. youSeon-Younggood value for money. you need to be careful not to melt the pegboard when ironing though4
My grand girl is happyRcwlibertyWe’ve waited a long time for this. My 6 year GG has had a lot of fun with this. We did have a bit of a problem getting them to melt correctly.5
MeltedPandatiniThis is the first thing I have purchased at ikea that was a bust. I have used 2 of these and both melted and did not work...using the same settings on my iron as a regular beading shaper. I did side by side and only the ikea ones melted entirely1
Good but heat with cautionReg12345It is very very easy to melt the beads and plastic together. (Our Red Circle is now permanently part if an ornament) Just swipe the iron over the paper repeatedly until just melted together, then take it off and flip over and put thebpaper back on the other side before giving a few passes on the bottom side to fully melt.3
Poppy09ytrewqThe base is made of same material as the beads so the heat warps it as it melts the beads. Should have different temperature tolerant2
Great for a group too!KindnessBuy 2 shape sets and have enough activities for 8 kids at once. I used it for ages 3 to 8 and everyone was helping each other find the colors they wanted. Glue a magnet on the back and hang on the fridge.5
Great bead boards!maliaakimseuThese boards are the perfect size and price! I've looked at other brands and there although they have larger boards the price is way too high.5
Be very carefully with them!Aquasocks182They melt very easily. Be very careful not to overheat or else they become useless.2
Easy to useDianna CalenzoHaving the basic shaped makes it easy to create many different things.5
The Base Can Melt If Your Iron is Too HotSue1704Great price but watch it when you iron it without perler beads all over the base. The iron can melt the perler base so the pegs become too wide to take a perler bead.4
Great set!Dot in CAI bought two sets and it was the perfect amount for crafting and creating with six kids.5
Nice varietyKstarns83I mainly bought this because of the big white square so we can make so many other designs since we already have some5

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA, and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastics

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastics

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups, and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
