The meter-long stuffed shark plushie gained its popularity back in 2019. This began when people began posting photos of the shark plushie doing human things like enjoying a pleasant fall picnic, or working at a laptop.

On IKEA Malaysia’s website, the shark plushie (now sold out) is described as “big and safe to have by your side if you want to discover the world below the surface of the ocean. The blue shark can swim very far, dive really deep and hear noises from almost 250 meters away.”

If you were one of the many who were unable to get your hands on this popular shark plushie, swim your way to an IKEA Malaysia near you now before its sold out. It’s definitely a jaw-some treat!
