It seems we are moving on from the Tide Pod challenge. Finally!


But the next craze is causing problems and safety concerns in England.


The IKEA 24 Hour Challenge, “encourages members of the public, particularly youngsters, to hide and build forts in large stores and warehouses overnight, before sneaking out the next morning.”


Earlier this week, 11-year-old Kaden Mirza in UK, was reported missing earlier this week after he didn’t return home from school. Mirza was found the following day after having spent the night inside IKEA as part of the viral internet trend. Kaden’s father, Abid Mirza, posted a warning to parents on his Facebook—which has since been made private—stating that his son had been participating in a “stay in IKEA overnight and not get caught challenge.”


The challenge originally started back in 2016 after Belgian YouTubers Bakuna Fatata filmed themselves sleeping over in IKEA.



Let’s be honest for a second, we have all thought about living in IKEA, right? They have everything. Food, bathrooms, and all the showrooms make up a house. A comfortable and stylish house.


Oh IKEA, we love you!
