KidZania Singapore – Most HAP place for kids in 2015

Sentosa is going to be the kids wonderland in the second quarter this year, and this is probably the most HAP place for kids in Singapore! HAP as in Happening and Happiest place! I want to be a kid again! Can we have an adult only trial preview too please?

KidZania is an indoor family education and entertainment centre (think Edutainment!), which offers an interactive learning and entertainment experience targeted at kids. KidZania combines role-play with real life, creating a kid-centric city experience designed to educate and inspire kids; from arriving at the airport, to visiting a city centre to exploring the city streets. As in the real world, kids choose activities – such as being a police officer, doctor, journalist or a customer – and earn money, which they can then spend or save. KidZania operates just like a real city complete with buildings, paved streets, vehicles, a functioning economy, and recognisable destinations in the form of “establishments” branded by leading international and local brands. The facilities are designed to educate through experience, fostering the development of life skills, but from a kid’s perspective it is all about fun which truly epitomises learning through play.

KidZania Singapore announced nine new partners, unveiling new roles and activities that children can take part in KidZania Singapore. They include being an optometrist, a candy maker, a store manager and a radio DJ.

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” the commonly asked question by educators and parents. Now with KidZania, it’s going to be “Why not let’s go try these professions today at KidZania?” KidZania Singapore is inviting local educators to have a say in shaping the attraction’s activities through initiatives such as organized “school trips” and a preview session.

Best suited for children aged 4 and above, KidZania offers diverse learning experiences that are specifically designed to aid social, emotional and intellectual growth through the development of work and study skills, positive attitudes, creative thinking and self-esteem.

KidZania Singapore would like to engage local educators to tap on their expertise and feedback in order to enhance the attraction’s activities. From now till KidZania Singapore’s launch, educators who are keen to organize group sessions or work with KidZania can also write in to learn@kidzania.com.sg. A special preview session for KidZania in Singapore will be scheduled closer to the launch date. KidZania Singapore welcomes feedback and suggestions as it strives for continual improvement to ensure relevance of the attraction’s activities to its visitors’ needs.

KidZania offers a unique opportunity for educators to complement the academic learning experience by reinforcing existing classroom knowledge, to support the cognitive and character development of a child. As we get closer to bringing KidZania to Singapore, we welcome local educators to partner us to educate, empower and inspire our future generation.” said William Edwards, Chief Operating Officer, Themed Attractions and Resorts Sdn. Bhd.

Children can immerse themselves in more real-life situations and activities as KidZania Singapore announced the addition of 9 new partnerships, making a total of 23 partners to date. KidZania Singapore and its latest partners are ready to build a better world for kids. Are your kids ready for these fun and educational adventures?

Ayra’s first encounter with Playmobil

During our June staycation, Playmobil was having an event at Sentosa, so we brought Ayra to check the place out. Though there were few activities at the Playmobil event, we only spent time at the pop-up store and the play area within the pop-up store. It was a very sunny and humid day, Mummy and Ayah was perspiring none stop, but the little girl just wanted to sit and play with the toys.

Why this toy so big?

Ayra’s 1st visit to Port of Lost Wonder at Sentosa

I’ve seen so many blog posts about this place since they opened, and I thought my 21 months is old enough to enjoy a day at Port of Lost Wonder. But I was wrong. She did enjoy a little and managed to overcome her fear of getting water splashed at her, but she didn’t get to play much.

Port of Lost Wonder at Sentosa (POLW) is a nice place for kids to get wet and have a splashing good time. I blame it on the weekend and school holiday, being a super peak period, the place was packed to the brim. The entire ship was loaded with kids and some adults. POLW is more suitable for kids above 5 or when the child is mature enough to run through slippery floors and understand the importance of queuing and safety.

There were quite a few toddlers spotted that day, all accompanied by adults, and they were all seated at a corner with splashing water spot and restricted to just that most of the time.


Took Ayra awhile to gather enough courage to stand inside this structure to play with the flowing water. However it was short lived as an older boy came by and pushed the level she was standing on and frightened her from the sudden jerk. There after she dare not stand anywhere near that structure.

Thereafter, she just stayed by my side and played on solid grounds with splashing water.

If the place is still around when Ayra and Baby No. 2 is old enough, we’ll probably bring her back there again. Till then, Port of Lost Wonder will not be in our places to visit list.

Have you seen a pair of Crane Dance?

To celebrate Loving Mum’s birthday, we brought the family to Resort World Sentosa. Since Ayra is too little for any adventure at Universal Studio, we just strolled around the public area, had dinner at Chilis and watched two crane dance.

The Crane Dance is an attraction at Resort World Sentosa Waterfront, where the two giant mechanic cranes dances gracefully every weekend at 9pm.

Crane Dance at RWS

Watch the magical love story between a pair of mechanical cranes and how their love for each other transforms them into real birds.

Combining groundbreaking audio and visual technologies, astounding light and water effects, be awed by the cranes’ graceful courtship ritual. The sheer size of the steel cranes moving deftly in the midst of water illusion and play of light is one not to be missed.

Took awhile before Ayra’s attention was on these cranes. She was too busy looking around being her kaypoh self when we reached Waterfront. When her eyes spotted the beautiful lights and splashing water, she stayed still watching the dance.

More details of the Crane Dance available on RWS website.
