People Around The World Are Falling In Love With IKEA’s Plush Shark Toy

Last year, photos of a plush shark toy went viral on social media. Right after IKEA released a soft toy in the form of a shark, people went gaga over it. And this is mainly because of the ‘Baby Shark Song’ craze that took the world by storm in 2018. When IKEA introduced Blåhaj (Blaha), a soft shark toy, the huggable toy quickly gained millions of fans around the world. A few days after its release, photos of Blåhaj have emerged on Instagram, Twitter, and other social media platforms. All of a sudden, Blåhaj was trending online as people put the toy in hilarious situations, snapped and shared the photos on the internet.
