Ikea Turns Kids’ Crazy Animal Drawings Into Actual Stuffed Toys

Kids have pretty crazy imaginations, and furniture store IKEA has harnessed the power to create 10 bizarre yet awesome cuddly toys, based on the drawings of 10 children.

Ikea’s annual Soft Toys for Education campaign asks kids to submit their weird and wonderful animal creations for a chance for it to be made into a plush toy. $1 from every sale of one of the cuddly toys goes to the charities Save the Children and UNICEF. IKEA started the charity effort way back in 2003 and since then has raised over $90 million for kids all around the globe
