Detolf.jpgAll good things must come to an end, and at the end of January 2024, we lost a good one: IKEA, the Swedish giant of furniture that require assembly, has discontinued the Detolf glass cabinet. Back in 2021, ToyFarce had managed to secure an interview with Sven Ivar Detolf, the inventor of the Detolf glass cabinet, which did not go well. We reached out to him for comments about the termination of his beloved invention.

“With a glass-door cabinet, you can show off as well as protect your glassware or your favorite collection.” This was the official description of the Detolf glass cabinet on IKEA’s website. If you are a toy collector, you are most certainly familiar with those, as we’ve seen thousands of pictures of toy collection displayed in one or more Detolfs (Detolves?). During our previous interview with Mr. Detolf, he told us that they were specifically made to display bowls, vases and various glasswares and that he didn't like that collectors used them to display toys:

"I did everything I could to get IKEA to stop selling them. I warned you! I refuse that people use my invention to display children toys in them!" said Sven. "I told IKEA that they had 2 options: Either remove them from the market, or I would use my fail-safe feature of exploding glass and get rid of all of them. You've heard about this one! You know what I'm capable of!"

I guess we are glad it didn't come to that... Anyway, the replacement for the beloved glass cabinet at IKEA has been revealed to be the Blåliden, and ToyFarce has been trying to get an interview with Edgar Blåliden, its creator. Stay tuned for more details...

More news at 11:00... The king Detolf is dead, long live Blåliden?
*ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
