The IKEA store in Hyderabad is hosting a children’s exhibition until May 15th, according to recent reports.
In celebration of Pippi Longstocking’s 77th anniversary, the Embassy of Sweden is arranging a series of events at the IKEA store in the city until May 15 that honour the fictional character in a children’s book series by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren.
Visitors can enjoy a colourful exhibition of Pippi’s colourful world, a performance by Joy of Drama, and a series of fun activities for children, including a reading corner where they can explore more about their favourite characters.
Moreover, they will be able to participate in puzzles, games, and colouring, and get dressed up as Pippi.
“Let’s celebrate Pippi, the girl who won the hearts of people all over the world. Her journey of teaching us, young and old, to be strong, brave, independent, rebellious, adventurous, and kind-hearted has lasted for seventy-seven years. Swedish author Astrid Lindgren made a lasting impact when she created this unconventional character.
As of today, Pippi continues to serve as a major advocate of childlike imagination, breaking social norms, and advocating for gender parity. I hope her free-spirited personality will continue to inspire many others for years and years to come,” said Gautam Bhattacharyya, Chargé d’affaires a.i. Embassy of Sweden.
The evening will also conclude with a storytelling session in Lindgren’s manner. Janaki Sabesh, a well-known Indian author, theatre performer, and storyteller, will lead the event on May 15 at 4 p.m.
Last year IKEA had also debuted AROMATISK, a new festive collection. Cushion covers, bowls, tea lights and lanterns, and décor items make up the collection, which is entirely sourced and manufactured by local Indian producers.
AROMATISK, which means “smell of celebration and togetherness” in Swedish, is inspired by Indian households and features a brilliant, vibrant design that is the collection’s centrepiece.
