Sneak Peak at IKEA WINNIPEG ~ Moms, you’re going to LOVE it!

How many times have you wished you could get a Duktig, or are you just dying for a Krokig?  I bet you are really looking for a Snoig!
Where can you get these mystery items? Well….IKEA Winnipeg of course!  I just got home from a press event at the brand new IKEA Winnipeg store and WOW pretty much sums it up.
I view my experience as one that would make any mother pretty excited. Let me take a moment to tell you why (other than the cool products and prices) this IKEA is awesome.  
When we arrived we were escorted upstairs to the cafeteria where I immediately saw 2 “big top” tents where children will be able to play and eat in a circus like enclosure.  What a fantastic way for the kids to enjoy their great tasting ($1.99) meal and have fun at the same time, not to mention how great it is for us moms to keep an eye on our kids!

In fact this IKEA location is the first one in Canada to have these “big tops”.  Pretty cool IKEA Winnipeg!

When traveling along the well identified trails in the grand shopping area, there are hot area’s where mothers may be more inclined to spend more time.  Area’s like the kitchen design or window coverings and fabric areas have been designed with children’s activity centers where children can draw or play with digital interactive programs.  Great idea when you NEED time to plan, design or simply enjoy.

And of course as a child (or parent) one of the best parts about IKEA is the children’s area.  Parents have the opportunity to  shop without their children for 1 hour while they stay in the play area and have the time of their lives…although I’m pretty sure the moms will be having just as much fun themselves.

Yes the Winnipeg IKEA is a great place to shop and play.  Mom’s will love this place for the great experience and of course the shopping.  We all know that IKEA has a great product and shopping is fun.  So all you Manitoba mom’s get our their and enjoy what IKEA has to offer.
