Parents and children love to go out and shop for new furniture at IKEA. While children think it is fun looking around for new items, they easily lose their patience when it isn't for them but their parents or caretakers. IKEA is well known for its wonderful accommodation towards adults with children and IKEA Thiais, south of Paris, France, is no exception to this.

Many parents and caretakers with children visit IKEA Thiais. While children are always exited to look around, IKEA understands walking through the store and going through the sales process can be very tiring for them. To offer a relaxed and fun shopping experience, IKEA Thiais made space for new kids play areas with new and exciting custom made play system and play modules.

The kids play areas can be found at several departments throughout IKEA; at the restaurant; the living rooms area and
at the storage department. The play system has been 
modeled after it’s environment: its shaped like a tree and has 3 play modules and 1 interactive PlayTouch system children can play with.

Now the children can play in a visible and safe area while their parents select the color or size of their desired couch or closet. When customers and their children leave their store with a smile, employees of IKEA Thiais are sure they’ll return!

The Emergency Department of hospital MC Zuiderzee in Lelystad is now using a brand new play system. Serviceclub Kiwanis donated the interactive play system on the 10th of June by raising money through the sales of chocolate Easter bunnies.

Kiwanis wanted to do something special this year for the children who were hospitalized in this department. ‘We’re very happy with this gift as we do not have the money available to buy play materials like this.’ Commented Lia Verheul, head of department. The interactive play system distracts children from their stressful situation and helps them to calm down. The chairs were donated by Instore Kids Corners and Kiwanis. ‘It’s good to see that we can contribute this way to a more pleasant stay in our hospital.’ Peter van den Berg on behalf of Kawanis. 

On the picture below hands Peter van den Berg on behalf of Kiwanis the interactive play system over to the Emergency Department of MC Zuiderzee.

Book Off caters to young readers

4 June 2014 16:23:19 CEST

Parents and caretakers often take children with them when they go shopping. The Book Off store in Tokyo, Japan, aims to provide the best service to these customers with the use of our products. 

Book Off

Book off employees in Tokyo understand that browsing and reading their books plays a major part in the process of buying new books. Employees know that parents and caretakers take children to shop for new items, taking their time to browse carefully through the wares, searching something for themselves and for the children.

Yet as we all know, children can get bored easily by all this browsing around. That is why Book Off Tokyo uses our bright and colourful table set and play system for children. Here, children can take their time to read the books they are interested in or play in a safe environment while allowing parents and caretakers to take their time to finish their search or find additional items they`d like. This way, Book off Tokyo turns play into profit! 

Book Off is a well known thrift chain store based in Japan with shops in Japan, France, and USA. It sells new and second hand books, CDs, DVDs, cell phones and much more.
