Other than the assembly, what’s not to love about IKEA? With incredible prices, great style and a cafeteria that’s worth driving across town just to visit, the mega-retailer is an obvious favorite among millennials. And with more of us transitioning from putting together futons to putting together cribs, IKEA is becoming a one-stop shop for any growing family.


Plus, there are no shortage of baby options in the warehouse: From nursery necessities to meal time must-haves and everything in between.

With that in mind, we reached out for insight on IKEA’s most popular baby and kid items. Here’s what they had to say...

Give your baby a fun workout while maintaining a cool aesthetic in your house with this cute baby gym.

9. MULA bead roller coaster, $9.99

We love how this classic toy got a modern makeover (and markdown) from IKEA.

Best yet: These items require little to no assembly! ?

Try this: Write down your name and those of your parents and then your children. Then locate each letter of each name on the keyboard and note if it is located on the left or right side (use T, G and B as the middle line).

There should be more left-side letters in yours and your parents' names and more right-side letters in each of your children's names. Weird, huh? That's what some scientists thought, too, so they set out to determine why and discovered a similar pattern across five languages.
