One of the perks of heading to IKEA to shop is Småland, their children's playland area. Although some might prefer to keep their kids with them, others enjoy knowing they can shop for an hour without wiping noses. What if that same courtesy was extended to your husband and they had a play area of their own? Oh snap, they already did, want to see the video?

Manland is a relief for many who aren't a fan of shopping at the big blue and yellow retailer. It's a haven that's filled with video arcades, pinball machines, comfortable sofas and giant televisions to catch the latest game.

Wives, girlfriends and significant others are given a buzzer or timer of sorts that goes off 30 minutes later as a reminder to come back and pick up your husband. We're not really sure who can make it through IKEA in 30 minutes, but if it means you can get in and out with minimal complaining, then maybe so.

Would your household benefit from Manland? Would you like to see the idea come Stateside? Share your comments below!
