Every year Ikea’s Soft Toys for Education campaign partners with UNICEF and Save the Children to help raise funds for schools, supplies, and other educational endeavors. And since it’s all about helping children, this year Ikea actually had them design the plush toys being sold for the campaign.

Entries drawn with crayons, markers, colored pencils, and countless other mediums were accepted, and Ikea eventually selected ten winners that its designers then turned into actual stuffed toys.

Some bear a loose resemblance to real animals like bats, skunks, and tigers, but it’s the more abstract creations that are the real gems here. And for every plush toy sold, Ikea will donate a dollar (or a Euro in Europe) to its Soft Toys for Education campaign that’s raised an impressive $90 million since it started in 2003.
