10 lucky kids’ drawings from many parts of the world have left paper and fantasy to become real soft toys that IKEAwill sell around the world as part of its Soft Toys For Education campaign – which they are running for 12 years, but this is the first time they turn children’s drawings into toys. The finalists were chosen from a world-wide selection and IKEA’s toy designers turned the drawings into sweet plush toys for sale at their stores.
One dollar/euro from each soft toy sold will go to UNICEF and Save The Children.
That’s such a nice initiative! Take a look at the children’s drawings and their toys! They are Thymeo, 4 years old (Belgium), Stella, 6 years old (Cyprus), Dora, 7 years old (UK), Koen, 10 years old (Netherlands), Albert, 7 years old (Romania), You-Chen Wu, 6 years old (Taiwan), Maja, 8 years old and John, 5 years old (Norway), Terrence, 6 years old (Malaysia) and Karla, 10 years old (Croatia).
