Number 10 – woods in the Books
Attractions:- If you’re bored of the traditional bookstores where stack and stacks of books are found, but you’re looking for something moreeeee sophisticated, with more life-then you should visit Woods in the Books. Inspired by creative arts that visually comes to life, the owner Mr Mike Foo and his wife started this unique picture bookshop, but the only mysterious thing is that, they’re not the bosses. Mr Scottish is. Who is Mr Scottish? You have to head down yourself to find yourself. And Mr Scottish is not a man, nor woman ah. Mention this to Mr Mike Food and he’ll be happy to tell you who Mr Scottish is.

Featuring the most iconic places in Singapore designed as mini- courses to slot in that lil bogey is what makes this destination a must-go-to place this June Holidays.

- Student $16.00
- Child (12 years old and below) $12.80
- Family (2 Adults & 2 Children 12 years old) $57.80
Number 8 – Bukit Batok Nature Park
Attractions:- What can we say about this place? Its serene. Relaxing. And beauty lies in the eye of its beholder. A favorite place for local Chinese drama directors to shoot their movies against a beautiful background. “Little Guilin” is the nicknamed this place earned for its beautiful granite formations that resembles a lot like a city found in China. Bringing your kids here will surely earn a good breath away from the city walls that we’re all so used to see every day! Go green for a day!
Opening hours:- NA
Address:- Bukit Batok East Avenue 5
Number 7 – Westgate KIDS club(not roof top)
Attractions:- Very much similar to a play school or kindergarten where your kids are supervised by adults trained in Early Childhood. Its quite a genius if you ask us though, tagline could possibly be: “Shop till you drop, without the whining and rants of the little rascals.” So the business idea is – pass the risk to them for two hours or so, while you go shopping peacefully. Cool aint it?
Opening hours:- 11am – 9pm
Address:- WestGate Shopping Mall #05-03
Prices:- $15 refundable deposit when you produce receipts spend at the mall.
Number 6 – Children’s Garden(Gardens by the bay)
Attractions:- For parents seeking a much cheaper thrill than Adventure Cove or the Port of Lost Wonder in Sentosa,this can prove to be the much cheaper option! Hence, don’t forget to bring swim-wears for this attraction too! There will be water sensory plays featured in this area including rainforest tree houses, and water play areas for the older kids for ages 6-12 years old!
Opening hours:- 10am – 7pm, Closed on Mondays
Address:- 18 Marina Gardens Drive. Direction to this location can be found here
Prices:- Free Admission
Number 5 – I12 Katong water playground
Attractions:- Singapore is fast becoming known for its kid-friendly malls where parents can do anything from shopping, dining, and a space for kids to play. Here’s another one of those rooftop places where kids can have fun as well! Don’t forget to bring swim-wear too when bringing your kiddos here, but bear in mind, here alot of ang-moh, as the mall is smacked right in their neighbourhoods, but hey, if you’re not malu among the ang-mohs, go on right ahead folks!
Opening hours:- Standard mall operating hours, might close on Mondays for maintenance like most other rooftop play areas, but its not stated
Address:- 112 East Coast Road
Prices:- Free Admission
Number 4 – Kallang Ice World
Attractions:- Initially we were gonna feature Fuji Ice Palace, only to find out that they’ve closed since 2008 since Jurong East Centre demolished!!! Looooool. Hearsay that they have re-established themselves at Marina Bay Sands where a new skating rink has been set up. But, anyhow, Kallang Ice World features a huge ass rink where it can accommodate loads of kids and adults alike, and when we went there the last time, their skates were really maintained in good condition!
Opening hours:- 10am – 10pm daily
Address:- 5 Stadium Walk, #03-08, Kallang Leisure Park
- $17.50 per adult (2 hours skate rental)
- $15 per child (2 hours skate rental)
- gloves at $2 (adult)and $2.50 (child)
- Socks goes for $2 each
Number 3 – Fidgets @ Grandstand
Attractions:-PollyWogs at East Coast too far for you, or the ones that are available in shopping malls are restricted to water plays only? If mommies and daddies are trying to conjure up another plan for an indoor playground for the little ones, then here’s another on that list! Located in the former Turf City-now know as The Grandstand, fidgets has been popular among the expats that live in the area around Bukit Timah prime estate. This indoor play area is not as good as KidsExplorer in our honest opinion, but it still serves the same function-to provide hours and hours of play time for the hyper little monsters! haha!
Opening hours:- 9am – 6am daily
Address:- 200 Turf Club Road, #03-10, The GrandStand
- Ages 12 – 23 months old: $10
- Ages 2 – 10 years old : $22
PS: We got a little lost the first time we tried visiting Fidget. To get there, you have to access either Lift 2 or Lift 3 inside PasarBella. Parking is available via the main carpark above the car mall, or on the opposite side of the building-the North carpark. Other means of getting there would be either by taxi, or a provided shuttle service.
Number 2 – East Coast ball area-PollyWogs
Attractions:- This was one of the very first places I brought my kid in his budding years. Their very first outlet was in East Coast Park near the Burger King and snooker place, and it was a marvelous location for drivers as parking was a breeze-although most would find it inconvenient to travel all the way to the east for an indoor playground. It brings about fond memories of us all running and chasing one another, laughing and all. Such a pity that it has closed. In return, it has popped up in three other locations. EastPoint in Simei, Suntec City and VivoCity. Its simply straight-forward for this place, its a place where you can find obstacles courses with ‘spikes’, tumbling rollers for the kids to maneuver. Its a little difficult to oversee your kids from the rest area, hence you gotta follow the kids closely as the obstacles can be quite a challenge for them to cross alone. I’d recommend close adult supervision.
Opening hours:- 10am – 8.30pm
- 6887-4860 (Suntec City)
- 6376-8097 (VivoCity)
- 6443-2421 (Eastpoint Mall)
- Weekdays : $20 – unlimited playtime
- Children aged 2-12 : $25/2 hours
- Children aged below 2 years : $13/2 hours
- Additional of $5 per half hour
Number 1 – Kidzania
Attractions:- The best one is reserved for the last always. This one I have yet to experience with my kid, but according to him, when his school arranged for an excursion, they brought him to Kidzania! This place struck an interesting chord in me because he got to play whatever role he wanted in this mock-up world. You get to be a fireman, a detective, or even a pilot for those few hours! What makes it even more remarkable was that this theme; was pretty much thought through- they even have their own currency called Kidzoos I think! You earn your $$ and pay for your food with the money you earned in there! Pretty cool right!
