10 IKEA Product Names That Don’t Quite Translate

They may sound cute and cuddly in Swedish, but these product names really utfart my American gronsaker.

1. 1. Great name for a glam metal band!


…but when it’s sheets, all I can think of is Dutch Swedish ovens.

“Thank you, 1986! We are… STENKLOVER!

3. 2. Sounds like a real sexpot. Ahem.

Apparently EVERYBODY gets to lick the spoon with this one.

4. 3. It’s not a boomerang at all.

But will that stop children from throwing them?

5. 4. My Florts also come in assorted colors.

Seriously though, it sounds like when you’re farting and you get scared halfway through.

6. 5. You’ve got to admit, it’s a catchy name!

According to legend, if you say it three times in front of a mirror, you get visited by the ghost of famous Swede Ingmar Bergman!

7. 6. Brb, gonna go take a wicked GRUNDTAL.

To be fair, the name does get to the point.

8. 7. Turns out that GRUNDTAL was a real FLARDFULL!

Probably based on that classic Swedish western, A Flardfull of Kronas.

9. 8. There’s a little bit of Billy in every single one.

Seriously though, this creeps me the hell out.

10. 9. Sure IKEA, give the kids ideas…

Not for use by impressionable children, Emo teenagers, or Gary Busey.

11. 10. You’d have to be one not to buy this!

Nice armoire, Dombas.

12. BONUS: The most intimidating doll ever. Only at IKEA.

Leave it to the Swedes.
