Does anyone happen to know how old kids can be at the Ikea play place? Is there an age limit and is it enforced strictly? I kind of want both my girls to be able to play there but I'm worried they will say my older daughter is too old. They are 9 and 6. I doubt my 6 year old will want to go in there if her big sister isn't allowed in with her.
Ikea play place?
The ladies at ours are pretty friendly. I don't know how hard and fast the rules are, but it can't hurt to ask. I'm trying to think of the reason behind the height restriction and it might be the ball pit...so if she promised not to go in there it might be okay.
I'd suggest going on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning. That's when it is the quietest at ours. I think you'd have better luck bending the rules if it wasn't busy :)
I am pretty sure that the local IKEA is strict about height limits, and age too. I don't think I've ever seen a tween in there. Their advertising reassures parents that height and age limits are in place for the safety and protection of the children. It wouldn't hurt to ask though, especially if it's a quiet time.
My DD will be playing for years then since she only finally was tall enough to play after she turned 4. Her best friend on the other hand who just turned 5 will very soon (liekly a matter of months) be too tall to play
I know it is funny, right? My younger daughter is 6 and is just barely over the limit to get in! She will, if she takes after me, not be 4'5'' until she's in about 6th or 7th grade. My older daughter, 9, is 4'5.5'' already! I think she takes after my mom. She;s definitely going to be taller than I am, as I'm only 5' now!
