Tayo Station

Do you love Pororo Park, the kids indoor playground located at Marina Square? If you love Pororo Park, you’ll be glad to know that sister outlet Tayo Station has recently opened late August 2018 at Downtown East in Pasir Ris! Tayo Station is actually quite different from Pororo Park, so it’s definitely worth a visit even if you have already visited Pororo Park.

Tayo Station is themed around the South Korean animated series (Tayo The Little Bus) and comprises the following main play areas:

  • Tayo’s Road Circuit
  • Poco’s Hinoki Play
  • Gani’s Playground (jungle gym)
  • Cliff Ball Pool
  • Toddler Play area

Pororo Park – 5 reasons why you should visit!

Pororo Park (8)

Whether you or your kids are fans of Pororo the little penguin from Korea or not, I would highly recommend a visit to Pororo Park the indoor playground located at Marina Square. What’s so special about this indoor playground you might ask. There are of course numerous indoor playgrounds dotted all over Singapore. I’ve never watched a single Pororo programme, and prior to my 1st visit to Pororo Park with Edward, I too wondered what’s the big deal about this place.

I’ll be frank, the admission fees are not cheap. They are probably one of the most expensive admission fees for an indoor playground in Singapore. A child ticket already costs $29.90, which in itself is already higher than average. And unlike other indoor playgrounds which usually admit at least 1 if not 2 accompanying adults for free, each accompanying adult at Pororo Park has to pay $6. Not cheap, to say the least. But Pororo Park does offer more than the average indoor playground.

The City at I12 Katong – Too run-down to visit again

I first visited The City at I12 Katong about half a year ago. This is an indoor playground with pretend play as the main focus. The main highlights are the supermarket, the kitchen and cafe, some dress up area, and a room with large foam blocks for open-ended play.

The City at I12 Katong - Supermarket

When I first visited, the place was pretty promising. Edward enjoyed himself tremendously at the supermarket area. There were many shelves of fake supermarket goods, and little kid-sized supermarket trolleys. He went bonkers over the trolleys, filling them up with all the goods, and then going to the checkout counters to scan them over and over again. The fake money in the cash registers were great too.

Gardens by the Bay Flower Dome – Begonia Brilliance

Anyone who has never gone to the Cooled Conservatories at Gardens by the Bay ought to really make a trip there. The experience is really amazing. The best part about it is that you can enjoy a beautiful garden-like setting in cool air-conditioning, even when you’re in hot and humid Singapore! It’s also a great place to bring young children to expose them to nature, without them getting too sweaty and irritable.

I missed the Tulip Mania which usually happens in April. I brought Edward to Tulip Mania 2016 and Tulip Mania 2017 when he was 2 months and 1 yr old respectively. OMG how he has grown, I miss his baby looks!! I guess I’ll be saying the same thing again come next year and I look at this year’s photos! Anyway, I was at the Flower Dome a couple of weeks back to check out the Begonia Brilliance and Enid Blyton’s The Magic Faraway Tree. I didn’t know there are so many types of Begonias, and it seems they can look quite different. You’ll see what I mean when you scroll down for the pictures.

Which picture looks better? Me being the main photographer, there are loads of pictures of Edward with Papa. And this is the only picture of me with Edward! Or perhaps Papa is just more photogenic?

[Media Invite]

Are you a fan of Enid Blyton stories? If you are, you would surely have heard of the famous Magic Faraway Tree, along with familiar names such as Moon-Face, Saucepan Man and Silky? If this sends your heart racing and brings back memories of your childhood, just like it did for me, you won’t want to miss out on the Enid Blyton-themed event held at Gardens By the Bay for the annual Children’s Festival.

Four special lands from the Magic Faraway Tree have been recreated – Land of Enchantments, Land of Tea Parties, Land of Toys and Land of Nursery Rhymes. Entry to this event is free for all public, and you can also purchase a Magic Pass to enjoy additional activities. There’s lots to do even if you don’t purchase the Magic Pass. There are free programmes such as storytelling, magic shows, science demonstrations, take pictures with the mascots. Or just revel in the picnic atmosphere where the lawns have been decked out in the Enid Blyton theme, with bouncy floats, see-saws and rocking chairs!
