Canadian winner selected in IKEA soft toy drawing competition

A Canadian winner has been selected in IKEA’s annual SAGOSKATT Soft Toy Drawing Competition and her “Sandwich Friends” design will become a real soft toy arriving in IKEA stores and online at this fall.

The young designer is 9-year-old Audrey from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan whose design called “Sandwich Friends” represents best friends who live in Canada. “Peanut Butter is soft, and jelly is sweet which together they make a wonderful treat,” says Audrey who wants to spread kindness and to ensure we always stay and take care of each other.

This year, IKEA received 66,000 entries globally and five unique drawing were selected to be turned into soft toys. In addition to Canada, winners were selected from Lithuania, Poland, Russia and the U.S.

The annual arrival of the SAGOSKATT soft toys is always a much-anticipated collection to look forward to each year. Audrey’s creation will be added to IKEA Canada stores from coast to coast and this fall.
