"With holiday shopping right around the corner, IKEA Soft Toys offer you a playful and unique option for the little ones on your holiday list.
Last year the program raised over $7 million with these plush animals that donate 1 euro ($1.47) to UNICEF and Save the Children with every toy purchased November 1 through December 24. This year by visiting www.IKEA.com/SoftToysAid, kids and adults can interactively play with their favorite soft toy character (each has their own name and homeland!) and teach them to sing and dance. IKEA wants you to help create the world’s largest choir, by recording songs with your own character. Visit the Soft Toys Aid website to view the music video and join in on the fun!
Ranging in price from $1.49 to $19.99, these lovable creatures make a great stocking stuffer or featured present for kids of all ages."

My daughter and I were very pleased when we received our Ikea Soft Toys package! We received one sample toy and press release. We automatically thought the toy we received looked like Beast, from the Nick Jr. TV show Maggie and the Ferocious Beast! But kind of a camel version of him. At any rate the toy is very well made, velvety soft and adorable! And I just love that Ikea donates 1 Euro (approx. $1.47 USD) for every toy that they sell to UNICEF and Save the Children educational programs. Proceeds from the IKEA Soft Toys campaign have or will benefit projects in more than 30 countries including India, Uganda, China, and many others.
My daughter just loves toting around this soft toy whenever she plays about the house. Many thanks to Lippe Taylor PR & Ikea for providing the product for this awesome review!
The Bottom Line: These toys are sure to be an affordable hit with your kids this holiday season! And who doesn't love to donate to charity and enjoy an adorable stuffed animal?!
