Why do children love dinosaurs?
While working on JÄTTELIK we found several possible answers to why many children are so fascinated by dinosaurs. One is that these creatures with long names blur the line between reality and fantasy, giving the child a tingling sensation of curiosity and excitement. There is also something thrilling about collecting and categorising facts about them. With this special knowledge, the child can gain a first sense of truly mastering something (and knowing more than you).
What is polyester?
Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
