Photos: Ikea holds massive ball-pit party for adults
A year ago swiss social media phenomenon @Zukkihund had posted an infographic which stated that the fun factor of visiting IKEA drops dramatically when you turn 9 and you are no longer allowed to enter the ballpit in the Småland play area. When @Zukkihund asked if IKEA could throw a ball pit party for grownups, the feedback was - wonder why - overwhelming. And IKEA was in. The swedish company always aims to communicate with a twinkle in the eye - and this idea promised a lot of fun! On Saturday, 27th of June, IKEA opened the gates. A pool of 10x5 meter. Filled with more than 100'000 balls! Bölleli is Swiss german for balls - so this was a Bölleliparty!
