We all know IKEA for their awesome furniture, customizable kitchen packages, and their delicious meatballs – but did you know that IKEA is one of the best places for some amazing baby and toddler finds? Take this list with you next time you spend the day shopping till you drop to ensure you don’t miss out on any of these treasures.
20 Best IKEA Finds for Kids
Antilop – High Chair with Tray
The ultimate high chair
for any new mom – it’s the easiest thing to clean. Need I say more? Very simple, white finish and at this price, you can’t go wrong.
Lockig – Children’s Potty
This potty is the best for those tough potty training
days (weeks, months . . . ). Its removable insert makes it easy to dump it all out, clean it up, and keep moving.
Tossig – Toilet Seat
Like the one above, it is still a big part of potty training, but this is a better option for the older kids. I know sometimes going on the big toilet can be scary to them, so this is where this toilet seat comes in – still using the big kid potty but just with an added seat!
I know what you’re thinking – how are spice racks a great baby or kid find? Well, these are amazing to use as bookshelves! They come in a plain jane birch color, so they’re also really easy to DIY and paint based on your nursery/children’s room. They also hold quite a few books, and they’re the perfect addition to a gallery wall.
Trofast – Storage Combination with Boxes
Toys left all over the living room? Want to find something that kind of goes with your décor without being too kiddish? These storage containers are perfect for that. You can get colorful bins (yellow, orange) or keep them neutral with the light white stained pine and white bins. Perfect for hiding those barbie dolls and race cars!
IKEA has a ton of different crib options in their inventory, and you can’t really go wrong with any of them. One of my favorites is this really simple, beech-colored one. It goes with any nursery décor
, and it’s just so simple – for under $100, this is the perfect place for your babe to sleep (hopefully)!
Kladdig – Children’s Bib
One of my favorites for those messy first meals
, painting activities, or anything where you think your child might be getting a bit dirty. It covers their entire upper body, including their arms and belly – and can be thrown right into the washer until the next time you need it!
Kura – Reversible Bed
Transitioning baby out of the crib and into their own bed
can be tough, so ensuring you have the right bed is key. This Kura bed is so fun! You can have it either as a loft-style with a little hideout underneath or with the bed closer to the ground – love that it’s reversible!
Kalas – Plates and Bowls
The sweetest plate ware to add to your cupboards – choose from adorable pastel colors or brighter, primary colors. They are the perfect vessel for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Ekorre – Rocking Moose
One of our favorite IKEA finds! The perfect addition to any playroom
– this rocking moose has that classic rocking horse feel with a little edge. Bright red and ready for hours of fun!
Mula – Toddle Truck
Is your little one just starting to walk
? Do they keep trying to take some steps but just can’t find their footing yet? This is the perfect walker for that! They’ll also love filling the wagon on the front with some of their favorite toys and taking a stroll around the playroom!
Leka – Baby Gym
These can easily cost an arm and a leg – so at under $40, this is a must-have for any new mom and a great baby shower gift
. With its bright colors and dangling toys, your babe will love it!
Duktig – Play Kitchen
This is one of the most popular IKEA finds. What toddler doesn’t love cooking up an imaginary breakfast
in their play kitchen
? This is the perfect piece to add to a playroom or even a living room with its sleek wooden look – it’s a nice change from the usual plastic piece.
These are so much fun and one of my favorite playroom staples. Painting and coloring can sometimes get pretty messy, but chalk is much easier to keep contained to one specific area – like this easel!
Forsiktig – Children’s Stool
We try to keep most things out of sight for the kids, and in most situations, it’s for the best reasons. However, sometimes things need to be accessible for them. This stool is perfect for reaching the sink, a drawer, and just to instill some more toddler independence
Mala – Drawing Paper Roll
Am I the only mom who struggles to find scrap paper for their kiddos to draw on when they’re feeling creative
? This is why I LOVE this paper roll! With 98 feet of crisp drawing paper, they can spend hours drawing up their favorite superheroes and imaginative lands.
Poäng – Kid’s Armchair
IKEA makes the Poäng in both adult and kid’s sizes, and its fabrication is simple yet, still a comfortable place to sit. We had one in our first nursery, and we love having the kid’s version in our living area for a comfy spot to sit on movie night
Duktig – 14-Piece Vegetable Set
One of our favorite additions to the IKEA kitchen is this adorable felt vegetable set! They also have a pizza set and a fruit basket made out of the softest, most durable fabric that is also easy to wash. With IKEA’s full-play food set, your child can be just as creative in the kitchen as a master chef!
Plufsig – Folding Gym Mat
One of my child’s favorite activities is practicing his somersaults and cartwheels. This is the perfect crash pad for it! Made out of a soft, foldable material, this is the perfect piece to help protect your little one from any unwanted injury while still practicing their acrobatics and circus tricks in your living room.
Busa – Play Tunnel
Bring the playground tunnel into your home with this adorable play piece! I always love a toy that keeps the kids active while engaging their imagination. This is the perfect one for that. It’s one that you’ll use for a while – in both the baby stages and as they grow.
IKEA is one of our favorite one-stop shops for everything home. It doubles as one of the best places to get everything you need for the perfect playroom, nursery, or kids’ room. This is just skimming the surface on all that they offer in terms of discovery and imaginative play. Consider filling your IKEA-sized cart with some of these fun finds on your next shopping trip!
