This year a selection of the IKEA soft toy range takes inspiration from children’s fairy tales. Featuring dragons, billy goats, fairies, elves and unicorns, the quirky, cute and cuddly range is really delightful.
Giving IKEA soft toys means you are giving more than just a gift to your child because for every soft toy and children’s book sold between now and the 4th January 2014, IKEA Foundation will donate €1 to children’s education through UNICEF and Save the Children. Since 2003, the campaign has reached more than 10 million children through 90 projects in 46 different countries.
IKEA sell a great range of soft toys and dolls in all sorts of shapes and sizes, so you will be able to find something to please everyone. I love their cuddly animals which are so soft and the hobby horse toys are perfect for active kids.
The little elf toys (pictured below) at just £1.50 would make a lovely 'Elf on the Shelf' toy for Christmas so you could could join in and make this a new Christmas tradition for your children. There are cuddly foxes, sharks, snakes and dogs for animal lovers. They even have a cuddly Broccoli toy for children who love their greens!
IKEA toys make great stocking fillers, under the tree presents or gifts for your children to give to their friends. Knowing that you are helping children living in poverty around the world to lead better lives, through buying a toy to give as a gift, is a lovely way to give a little back this Christmas.
**We are big fans of IKEA at Christmas! They have lots of family activities to join in with and Santa will be in store at weekends between 11am and 4pm! Plus if you buy a Christmas Tree for £25 you receive a £20 voucher to spend in the New Year! Check the details at your local IKEA!**
