Clown Dog

November 13, 2012

Here’s a sketch of one of my favorite IKEA soft toys, the KLAPPAR CIRKUS dog. Or as I like to call him, “Clown Dog.”


Today, IKEA stores all over the USA each gave away 100s of soft toys in the chain’s fourth Random Act of Life Improvement. These acts are meant to surprise and delight passersby.

IKEA Orlando shared the comforting little toys with patients at Nemours Children’s Hospital. As an IKEA co-worker (full disclosure), I had the opportunity to take part in this heartwarming act. What a great start to my work day!

The giveaway also launched IKEA’s annual Soft Toy Campaign, a global initiative. For every soft toy or children’s book purchased through December 29th, the IKEA Foundation will donate $1 to educate kids – through UNICEF and Save the Children.

If you’re visiting IKEA Orlando, or any of our sister stores in the world, please pick one up for your child. Don’t have a child? No problem! You could think of a young family member, your friend’s kid, or donate one to the cause of your choice. Help a soft toy find a home, and IKEA Foundation will make a donation to say thanks.
