VCVSAGreat value. Will use for my sons messy and outdoors activities as it’s very easy to clean.5
Great for sitting onSola19I bought it a month ago and it's worth it.5
I use UTTER , the child"s stool as a plant stand.RuebenThe UTTER child's stool ogments my purchase of the child's table in setting up my growing plant collection. The new height adds some visual interest as well as access to grow lights.5
Cute and strongMissWendyI bought the 2 stools and 2 tables for when my granddaughters visit. I love how strong they are and that they take apart easily for storage.5
Too tall for my early toddlerDont panicPros: Easy to assemble. Priced very well. Cons: too tall for my 15 month old toddler. Also very lightweight so when she tries to sit in it, it scoots backwards away from her. We will try it again when a little bigger.4
Toddler stoolTmaddox03Grrr et at stools for the classroom! Stack very nicely!5
Utter stoolGlory217Great for kids and Reasonable pricing4
Great item for the priceMyTwoCentsI bought this stool to use as a portable luggage rack for my suitcase instead of using hotel provided ones (which can hide bed bugs in the straps from other peoples’ luggage). For 5 bucks it’s an awesome deal compared to folding stools and racks I was looking at, and since the legs detach it slides right into my suitcase’s front zipper compartment. I didn’t see a weight restriction, but I stood on top of it for a few minutes with no problem, so I’m sure it will have no issues there.5
Great as an outdoor tablegoldruss42088I didn't buy it for a stool. It is flat on top so it is perfect for outside my front door as a table for me to get to my keys easier. I filled the legs with sand, inside plastic shopping bags, to add weight.5
Great little stoolJillgaThis is a great stool, especially for the money. My 19 month old daughter was frustrated with the other taller children’s chairs we have for my 4 year old and I got this for her instead. She can easily climb on to it by herself, however, I do wish it was circular. She ends up sitting on the corner sometimes. Other than that, it is well made, easy to put together, durable and endures a lot of abuse and still looks brand new. It cleans easily and I can get crayon off of it with no issues. The bonus is that I can also sit on it when I need to during craft time at their table. Well worth it!5
Good for in front of the Ikea Easel.Grims MamaThis little plastic stool is very simple. It's not as sturdy as wood would be, but it does the job if your kids will be mostly sitting on it without a lot of moving. It is by far the best priced option they have available. You can even add a little tie on pad if you want, we did. It slides right under the tray of the Ikea Easel for neat storage, so it is working great for what we bought it for. I would not recommend letting your child scoot around on this or stand on it3
Great alternative for a plant standShadetreeI bought the stool to use as a plant stand. Easy to assemble and very sturdy. I have my cherry tomato plant - 16 plastic pot and drip tray sitting on the stool. Since it is light weight I can also easily drag the plant on the stool when I need to move it. Inexpensive alternative use for the children's stool.5

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.

The assignment description was simple and clear. The assignment itself a little bit trickier. But Marianne and Knut soon realized they already had suitable sketches which had laid around for a few years. “In this case, one can say that reality caught up with our ideas about a series of colorful children's furniture which is stable, encourages children's eagerness to play, and, for adults, are easy to handle and care for”, says Marianne. The table and stool have undergone tough tests to ensure that they’re safe. All parts are made of harmless polypropylene plastic, which also makes them easy to wipe off.

Easy to transport and assemble

The stable construction is made to withstand the sometimes harsh treatment from wild and cheerful play. The low price was reached, among other things, by adapting the furniture's design and packaging exactly to the size of our pallets, with no space left unused. “We also wanted it to be really easy to assemble UTTER. So we made a construction where each leg is threaded so that an adult can easily screw them on or off by hand. It's especially good if the children are eager to start playing”, says Knut.

Durable year after year

“I think the best thing with UTTER is that we've managed to combine imagination and functionality into the same product. This is not a fad that quickly feels old, but durable furniture that children can play with year after year”, says Marianne.

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!
