It’s hard to explain why we love the cult favourite BLÅHAJ shark stuffed toy from IKEA so much. Perhaps it’s the way these gentle giants have been anthropomorphised to become our nighttime companions, or the fact that the metre-long plushies are just downright adorable.
Earlier last week, Alex from IKEA’s UK Support Twitter account announced that the BLÅHAJ is currently unavailable “due to supply issues” and that it’s set “to be discontinued from April 2022”. While this came by way of a casual response to another Twitter user’s enquiry, it was enough to send netizens all over the world into a frenzied panic.
The shark in action
The shark has been spotted doing human-like things in IKEA stores all over the world, and is what made dear ole’ blue so popular in the first place.
BLÅHAJ in Singapore
BLÅHAJ will not be discontinued in Singapore currently, but is sold out online and in all stores except the Jurong Store. If you’re looking for alternative places to get your hands on the shark, then you can count on trusty Lazada and Shopee to see you right through it.
