The Swedish homewares store proves that you can flat pack just about anything!

If you love IKEA, chances are you also love the challenge of flat pack furniture, but it turns out that the store offers much more than just the perfect storage solution or kitchen fit out. The Swedish retail giant has released a flat pack edible Easter bunny just in time for chocolate season, and it combines all the joy of self-assembly with delicious milk chocolate.

Step By Step

The do-it-yourself chocolate comes in three parts that are neatly placed together to create the Easter bunny, without a single screw or set of instructions in sight! The ears, body and legs slot together allowing the bunny to stand completely upright. The product is not only a bit of fun, but is also sustainable, using UTZ certified cacao. IKEA says that the bunny can also be used as a cute Easter decoration, but the Aussie heat and temptation for little tummies means we can’t see it lasting long enough for that!

The flat pack Easter bunnys are $6 each and expected to remain in IKEA stores until June. We think they’d make an amazing Easter craft activity for kids over the school holidays, or a super cute alternative to a party bag if your child’s birthday is in the lead up to chocolate season!

  • Love it – gives the kids something constructive to do and even if I end up doing it I have become queen of the flat pack so no problems. Just wondering if you get any extra left over chocolate screws !!

  • Once put together, the bunny can be used as Easter decoration. Or be eaten straight away!
    The chocolate contains a minimum of 30% cocoa.
    UTZ certified cacao: ensures sustainable farming standards and good conditions for workers.

  • VÅRKÄNSLA
    Milk chocolate bunny, self-assembly, UTZ certified
    $6 / 0.09 kg
    Price/kg $66.67 At this price it would want to be very good chocolate to eat. Maybe we are not to think about the price per KG.

  • This is so funny ! I would have been really impressed if they could have somehow incorporated screws and an allen key into the assembly :)

  • I wonder how quickly it melts into your fingers as you’re putting it together? Cute idea though.

  • HAha, very cute. A clever idea by the ikea marketing department and a way to showcase what they do and remain authentic.
