Smaland, The Magic Forest

I’ve been eyeing IKEA’s Smaland even before I had Ethan. I have always wanted to let Ethan play there but never have the courage to let him go mainly because I won’t be allowed to enter with him.
A couple of weeks ago a sudden gust of courage swept over me. I brought Ethan to Smaland and asked him if he wants to enter. Of course he answered YES! I was worried as he will be going in ALONE! But my anak macam ‘no hal’ like that…
Smaland, The Magic Forest
1) All children 3 – 10 years old are welcome to play here
2) Choose a box and put your child’s shoes inside
4) Ready for FUN!
Sign-in form. Complete the sign-in form. Write the child’s name and box number on the sticker.
Put the sticker on your child. Both you and your child will be stamped with a similar number.
The number is important when you are collecting your child. Only matching numbers are allowed to pick-up the child.
We usually go on weekdays to avoid the weekend crowd
Ethan having the time of his life
I waited outside.. NO I did not go shopping.. I just can’t.. haha..


An hour later I picked him up from the Market Hall in Ikea; an hour of fun.. free of charge! :D

  • //

  • //

    Aiyo i think all parents oso cant leave their boys / girls like dat. :)

  • //

    Huh? U let him in alone but u waited outside? So susah ah?

  • //

    But is there other kids there? He played all alone? Fun meh?

  • //

    It's time you leave him on his own. There are people guarding there right?

  • //

    Same here! For so many hundreds of times, we wanted to "dump" Chloe there but chickened out. She has never been there until today.So, nice or not this Smaland? One of these weekdays, I should bring Chloe there to play with Ethan ;)

  • //

    come on..u do it once, will do it twice. i hv dump p there… (hey not pee ok) n i went eating, shopping n P even said..dont want to go home.I very dare hor…:(

  • //

    Kids today are so lucky… All these nice places to go and play.

  • //

    haha… i think we just can't walk away can we, kena put a bodyguard there… hahahah!

  • //

    Parents are allowed to enter but not "Deep inside" is it? Then still ok what? :p

  • //

    Love the concept….matching number for both mother and son.

  • //

    Oh, my Samantha have to wait 1 more year only can go in :P

  • //

    Looks like Ethan was having so much fun despite all by his own.Ethan is so independant. Merryn, you must be very proud of him.

  • //

    That is fun..but I don't think I will let Ryan in there alone…feel unsafe.

  • //

    We too, always wanted to let my girl play there, but it seems the queue is always seems so long!>_<

  • //

    Never let my girl spend time at indoor playground alone before. Maybe I can try it :)

  • //

    Got number tag one ah…should be safe. I think I will shop in lightning speed if I were to leave Gwen there..hehe.

  • //

    It's good that parents stay and wait for their kids. It's not a safe world out there these days.

  • //

    wow..Ethan must be having a fun time there.

  • //

    This looks like a cool place for kids!! Didn't know of such a place e sits! Not to mention free :) I guess this marks the beginning of more visits! :)

  • //

    My kids went once.. We put them there and we wait outside, haha! I very scare they can not survive themselves, ahahaha.
