This is the first in my new series of Christmas present ideas. You may remember that last month I ran the 12 days of Christmas books post, hopefully giving you some inspiration for your little book-worms. Well know I’m moving on to Stocking Filler ideas. I’ve always been a fan of Ikea – especially since having Monkey. They have some great ideas for kids bedrooms, and Monkey’s first train set was a simple figure of 8 from Ikea. So I knew I’d find some great Christmas stocking fillers from Ikea.
Meet Flygdrake ….
How handsome is he! A total bargain for £8.00 too. Monkey will be 4 next week and he has a wooden castle, with knights who are always trying to slay a dragon. I’m hoping that Flygdrake will show Monkey that not all dragon’s are nasty!
Flygdrake carries a lovely gingham heart on his paw, has a plush body with scales and a fabulously long tail. He is also machine washable – a bonus. Trust me, this is something to look out for. Monkey’s favourite teddy is not machine washable – what a mistake that has been!
Ikea have produced a range of soft toys inspired by fairy tales, including this lovely Dragon, a Fairy, an Elf, a Princess and a King.
Our soft toy range takes inspiration from children’s fairy tales. However, IKEA soft toys are not just a gift, but also for every soft toy and children’s book sold between 20th October 2013 and 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.
The quality of the Christmas Stocking fillers from Ikea is lovely, just as you would expect. Our dragon has textured wings, he’d be as well-loved by a baby as he will be by Monkey when he opens his Christmas stocking in a few weeks time.
Ranging from £4.00 – £8.00 these Christmas stocking filler ideas from Ikea are a real bargain. I can thoroughly recommend.
