2 bad things about the store:

-everything comes in 3 colors: blue, yellow and green. (sometimes red.)

-you have to put it all together (which can take from 2 minutes to 3 years)

noun. A very big and boring store, where you will spend more than 10% of your day if you travel with a felmale. Apparently, they love the store and everything from it. For the rest of us, it's a living hell: Babies spend their time in a prison called small-land, where they get pelted by big plasic balls. Teens, are stuck with their parents, or will wander off, leading to a 10 hour search expedition. And Men have to agree with everything in order to get out in two hours (if they are lucky) and watch their wallet grow empty.
In addition, there is the food court, which sells disgusting swedish food-crap-like-ummm...-food.
I want to get out of IKEA ASAP!
