Today I spent more than €15 at Albert Heijn. That, of course, means that I was given a keukenmini!
keuken = kitchen. So it’s a mini “toy” for kids to play with. Of course, to really play with it the parents need to buy the stove for €15. The stove is a few feet tall and the idle place to put the mini items that your parents get for spending €15…
Of course, if you’re on this side of the pond (the Netherlands) and you are desperate to find the last remaining keukenmini your child needs, you can always try marktplaats.nl – an Ebay website of sorts.
I figure the reason Albert Heijn needs to entice the kids in such a way is because it doesn’t have the traditional impulse buys American children have right next to the cash register’s conveyor belt. Candy.
Can I have a candy bar Mommy?
Can I? Can I pleeeeease have the candy bar?
So yeah. Albert Heijn has to get the kid’s attention somehow!
