Perhaps you can recall the popular Blåhaj (Blaha), the shark plush, IKEA had been selling a year ago or so?

Well, IKEA discontinued the insanely popular plush

And it wasn't until a fan-made petition pushing for it's return -- that the Blåhaj plush was officially relaunched and back at IKEA! And with its return came the countless social media posts! There has even been separate Instagram accounts created for the popular shark plushy.
