Just before the forest of perfectly decorated living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms of Ikea, lies the wee little Småland. Swedish for “Small Lands,” the magical play center for children at Ikea is a dream come true for errand-running parents. Modeled after a far away village in Sweden, Småland is free, supervised, and filled with faux stone walls and giant clogs. Leave your little ones to explore the hidden lands of Sweden while you admire those affordable and pleasant bedroom suites and kick back with some Swedish meatballs.
