IKEA Japan Babysitting Service:
If your child is aged 4 – 10 years, IKEA provides a free 60 min sitting service at Småland while you shop. Reservation tickets are required to enter. Tickets can be found at the machine located outside the Småland window. Grab a ticket, fill out the Småland sign-in form and give both to the Småland attendant. If it`s a busy day you will have to wait for your number to be called. Once your number is called you will receive a name sticker to place on your child and a beeper to carry with you while you shop. Your kids are to put their shoes, water bottle, bag and any other items they have with them in a numbered bin. Then they can go play. Ticketing begins from 9:30 Monday – Friday, and from 8:30 on Saturday, Sunday and Public holidays.
