Just in time for the Christmas holidays, IKEA has introduced a new collection of games, activities and associated accessories titled LUSTIGT following the 2017 IKEA Play Report that found 30,000 parents in 12 countries believe play encourages creativity and helps people lead healthier lives.
Interestingly, the study also found that games feel a little socially unacceptable in this digital age but IKEA are doing their best to challenge that!
Featuring 20 different games and activities, the LUSTIGT range aims to help early development, logical thinking and promote exercise too. There’s no doubt that play encourages family interaction also – a timely reminder with the holiday season imminent. Here are some of our favourites from the range.
