In a world-first, IKEA is profiling its latest collection — UTSÅDD — through a TikTok live-stream broadcast like no other, on 17th May at 9am. UTSÅDD is the new product range from IKEA designed not for humans, but for their pet companions. So who better to talk about its benefits than teleshopping expert cats and dogs on The Pet Shopping Network? Which is literally pets selling UTSÅDD to other pets (with just a tiny bit of help from humans behind the scenes).

The lively UTSÅDD collection has been developed with input from veterinarians, pet product experts, as well as an excitable panel of cats and dogs – genuinely! The resulting 29-piece range was developed around the four most common activities that cats and dogs do in the home – eating, sleeping, playing, and hiding – all designed to make these activities fun and easy to manage for both pets and people.

The Pet Shopping Network will profile the UTSÅDD range and appear exclusively for everyone in the UK on TikTok. With the platform being well known for providing high-quality and engaging content for lovers of cats and dogs, The Pet Shopping Network was designed to fit well and truly into that genre. The special livestream will see cats and dogs demonstrate the new products, and interact with the human audience at home – like voting to see puppies or kittens sitting in a comfy UTSÅDD pet bed.

IKEA has a mission to create better everyday lives for the many people, which includes all members of the household – with or without a furry coat. Kemi Anthony, Marketing Communications Manager of IKEA said: “You know, pets are so much more than just pets. They’re one of the family. We celebrate their birthdays, dress them up, and let’s be honest, they pretty much run the household! At IKEA, we get that. That’s why we’re excited to offer furniture that’s designed just for them, to cater to their unique needs and still looks good. And we’ve found an entertaining way to bring this campaign to life.”

Nick Hallbery, Executive Creative Director at Mother, added, “In classic teleshopping style, there is no better person to talk about a product than those who will be using it. With The Pet Shopping Network, we’ve got part customer research and part entertainment, in one package. Our aim is to help the four-legged members of every household feel as at home as their human companions, with a dedicated collection that’s just for them. Sorry humans.”

Alongside The Pet Shopping Network, IKEA will also be hosting a series of in-store and social media activities. A PR campaign led by Hope&Glory PR will launch on 21st May and will focus on the importance of helping animals find their forever homes.
