For parents whose kids are still sheltering in place and currently losing their minds with boredom, you’re in luck. (Don’t worry — this applies to kids at heart,k too).
The Swedish furniture giant, IKEA is riding to the rescue with a range of plans for playhouses and pillow forts to build in your own living room. Even after the end of the lockdown, many daycare centres and kindergartens are still off-limits, which means that legions of exasperated parents are still wondering what to do with their bored rugrats. Not to worry, help is at hand from Ikea Russia, which, in association with design agency Instinct, has come up with a range of playhouses that can be built at home. And that is not all, this playful activity even comes with familiar Ikea assembly instructions.
You do not need a crane or a concrete mixer to embark on these construction projects, which rely on items that can, of course, be ordered from Ikea, but which usually are abundantly available in the average home. Think blankets, bedspreads, chairs, stools, and books and clothes pegs for the finishing touches.
The playhouse collection includes six different designs: among them the classic WIGWÅM and CÅMPINGTENT for the traditionally minded, CÅVE for those who want something relatively compact, FÖRTRESS for those in need of a solid abode, and the grandiloquent CÅSTLE and HÖUSE for those in search of roomier properties.
