IKEA Is Releasing a Quirky New Children's Line
You may know IKEA as the store that furnished your first apartment after college, but the Swedish chain offers products that appeal to all age groups. As Fast Company reports, one of their newest lines is made for kids ages 6 and up—but older customers can also appreciate the offbeat designs.
Lustigt from IKEA features toys, games, and crafts, all designed with an eye towards playfulness. There's a light-up jump rope, a weaving loom, a paint roller, and a colorful jigsaw puzzle. Channeling what it does best, IKEA has included some home goods in the collection as well, like an asymmetrical shelf and a bedspread. Other items, like a giant plush hand, defy categorization.
There's a reason the pieces look like they were lifted from the doodles of an elementary schooler. The 7-year-old daughter of designer Henrik Preutz helped with the designs, according to IKEA.
The Lustigt line won't be available online, but you can catch it in stores for a limited time when it hits IKEA shelves this October.
