Men in Shanghai reluctant to join their wives while out shopping can now enjoy a ‘husband nursery’ where they can relax as their other halves shop.
Bored, tired or even men with sore feet can enjoy the nursery on the third floor of the recently opened Vanke Mall in Shanghai’s Minhang District.
Men can entertain themselves by watching TV, flicking through the magazines and newspapers available, take a nap in one of the armchairs or even work out some shoulder tension with a massage chair, the Shanghaiist reports.
Images of the room show men chilling out with their shoes off and feet up while they wait.
Apart from a TV mounted on the wall and various tables and chairs, the room appears bare but relatively modern in design.
It’s unknown if people have to pay for the privilege of relaxing in the ‘husband nursery’, or whether it’s free to use for all tired husbands.
The ‘husband nursery’ has gained a lot of attention online, with some loving the idea more than others.
‘It’s quite necessary,’ one person Chinese social media said.
Another added: ‘Will they worry about their wives maxing out their credit cards if they are not by their side?’
According to Parent Herald, one female user on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, asked if there was a ‘wife nursery’ for women like her who don’t like shopping.
