People love IKEA for a number of reasons and we all know them. There is no other store that offers the same atmosphere and clever product design. The marketing campaigns organized by the brand are often unique and the shark plush toys used in numerous IKEA locations are a small part of that. The list below is dedicated to the shark called Blaha and we are happy it is available again.
1. The sneaking shark
It seems that this shark is not as intimidating as the real sea creatures are, because the plush toys are not aggressive-looking but rather friendly and even cute, which was part of their design of course.
2. The bin
As you can see, the people at IKEA are not limited to where they can put these sharks. This makes it interesting because there is no telling where you can come across one next time you visit a store.
3. The kitchen
Now, this is one of the things that nobody would expect to see – a shark peeking out a tiny kitchen at an IKEA store. This is the kind of arrangement that can surprise every customer in a nice way and make them smile.
4. The baby crib
Here is how a baby crib can look entirely different when there is a huge blue shark inside of it. Parents who happen to see this would not resist getting the shark as a gift for their kid and that is a fact.
5. The habitat
Now, this is one of the numerous ways in which IKEA employees promote plush sharks to clients. There is no doubt that seeing sharks in shirts or dining at a table is a curious sight to see.
6. The cook
Sharks are definitely not the greatest cooks because they prefer their food raw but we guess that IKEA sharks are different. As you can see, this cook looks just like a cook is supposed to.
7. The bookcase
Here is one of the best IKEA setups that involve one of the signature blue plush sharks. One of the employees decided to put a shark on a bookcase with an open book and it looks awesome.
8. The other cook
Here is yet another shark that tries to cook something delicious. People who go to IKEA probably don’t expect to see such setups which is why they are created in the first place – to cause random smiles.
9. The family
This person has point because this really is the kind of setup that we would love to see every time we visit an IKEA location. Someone decided to take their time and make this for the customers to enjoy.
10. The images from Singapore
It seems that these cute plush toys are very popular in different IKEA stores across the world. Someone in Singapore was fascinated to see a shark peeking out a washing machine.
11. The hidden sharks
Some IKEA locations offer clever setups incorporating sharks and this is one set of examples that can really be set as an example. Someone took their time and create these friendly arrangements.
12. The champagne
Now, this is something different and you can see that this is the kind of setup most people would love to have at home. It looks like a bottle of champagne and a shark from IKEA are actually a good match.
13. The table
While some of the sharks inside IKEA stores are mostly hidden and waiting for clients to find them, this bunch is visible from a far distance and is bound to make anyone smile. We guess this is a job well done.
14. The meeting
Here is one person who is obviously a fan of the sharks sold at IKEA. There are more than a few people who would gladly sit down and chat with these plush cuties and this person decided to do exactly that.
15. The happy customer
People who visit IKEA often love the store, the merchandise, and everything related to it, including the setups and the decorations. As you can see, this person decided to share just how delighted he was to see that sharks are pretty much everywhere at their favorite IKEA store.
16. The celebration
It seems that people who visit this particular store would happily sit by these sharks and keep them company for some time. It is obvious that people who had this idea were aware that such a decoration would attract many clients.
17. The funny decorations
There are many ways to incorporate these sharks and many IKEA employees are happy to come up with different ideas. The examples you see here are worth sharing and seeing them in person would be nice.
18. The question
Here is how one person decided to share the images her mother sent her. She happened to work at an IKEA store and her daughter really wanted to see more of the shark trend. Her mother delivered and the images are pure gold. We should get one of these sharks and make it part of the family.
