~ IKEA @ Tampines ~

Recently we have been frequent visitors of IKEA @ Tampines for various reasons.

1) It is not too far from our home plus the parking is FREE!
2) Gladys enjoys playing at the Småland and we have 1 hour of free time. ^_^
3) Free 2 cups of drinks with OCBC - IKEA Friends card. Denver has exceeded the maximum height requirement for Småland and hence he gets to follow us to window shop and eat. ;)

Småland - The Magic Forest is a wondering place to put the kids in while the adults shop around. (Note: Children entering the play room must be within the 90cm - 130cm height limit). First, you need to press for a queue number for your child. Do anticipate a longer waiting time during peak hours/weekends. Then, fill in a registration form at the counter and wait for your queue number to flash on the board.

The child will need to clean his/her hands and go for a temperature check before entering. Afterwhich, it is just pure fun where the kids get to run, jump, climb in the play room. There are also little corners for those who prefers to watch a movie, read a book or do some colouring. Parents can pick their child up when it's time to go.

Generally, we are here for a leisure walk around the store while many others come here to get home furnishing ideas or purchase their desired furnitures.

IKEA stores are very kids-friendly and family-orientated. There are little play stations at different location and the children can play with the toys in the children section. Apart from Småland, the children department is most popular among kids. Fun slide at the entrance, toys, colourful, vibrant and beautifully designed furnitures & rooms kept the children occupied at all times.

Another plus point to come to IKEA? We get to collect our free drinks at the IKEA Resturant & Cafe using the IKEA Friends card. Occasionally, you get to enjoy some special dining promotion. For example, since Dec last year, kids get to dine for free (kids meal only) with any main course ordered! Promotion is only valid at IKEA Tampines for weekdays (after 5pm) and till 31st Jan 2011. So the more kids you have, the more kids meal you get for FREE!

Not to forget one of our children's favourite - IKEA's $1 Hotdog. ^_^

PS: Not to forget Giant and Courts are just nearby too! ^_^
