In "A Cheap Date, With Child Care by Ikea", Michelle Higgins writes, "Over-stretched, money-conscious parents are using the store’s supervised play area as their personal baby-sitting service." For instance, there's single dad James Rotino who takes his son to Ikea once a week after preschool and Kristy and Matt Hall who visit regularly with their 2-year-old son who add, "It’s a very creative way to get a night out and see if you can capture a little social life."
What about you? Do you go to your local Ikea for more than just furniture?
