About

The IKEA DJUNGELSKOG Bear, known officially as DJUNGELSKOG, refers to a large stuffed brown bear sold by Swedish furniture store IKEA. Similar to the BLÅHAJ Shark, the DJUNGELSKOG bear gained popularity and fandom online, following its release in 2018 and its U.S. release in 2023.

Origin

In April 2018, IKEA's DJUNGELSKOG line of children's furniture was released in European stores, including stuffed animals like a lion, panda bear and monkey.[1][2] The DJUNGELSKOG brown bear was released a few months later in August 2018 (images shown below).[3]



The plush toy first received attention on February 19th, 2019, when Twitter / X[4] user @Hiroshark tweeted photos of the DJUNGELSKOG bear, writing, "gotta get to IKEA to buy only the essentials," receiving over 11,000 likes in five years (shown below).
