IKEA Värmland: Grow Your Toys

IKEA's Future

The Värmland is a completely natural childrens' toy. Made of mycellium and waste saw dust from the manufacture of wood furniture, the Värmland kit allows kids to grow their own toy. Värmland's name comes from the site of Sweden's first railroad since the kit ships with a mold for a model train. More molds can be 3d printed or ordered through IKEA's site. Following in IKEA's tradition of flat pack furniture, Värmland is packaged with zero waste, even the box can be cut and mixed in with the growth material.
