Ikea has a new baby collection, and it is all sorts of cute (and affordable)

Look, touch, push, lift — the new KLAPPA baby toy collection at Ikea is designed to help babies develop their senses through colours, shapes, touch and sound.

There’s a baby gym promoting eye-hand coordination, as the baby grabs for the hanging ladybird or stretches towards a mushroom. Every product in the series has a different theme; the baby gym has a forest world, the play mat is like a seabed and the mobile shows planets in space.

Designer Malin Unnborn explains she wanted to find specific details that could create curiosity and lead to play. Here is what she had to say about the new collection:

“For example, for the picture book and the ball I used colours with strong contrasts and fabrics with different structures, such as glossy and matte, soft and rough.”

On the play mat, Malin made shark fins and other details that stick out just enough for small and curious fingers to pinch them. Other products include a comfort blanket with a soft toy and a musical toy caterpillar.
