Love Creative Play Time with Our Kids

Playtime is rare with Mummy around, because Mummy is always busy with work even when she’s at home in the evening. But when Mummy do sit and play with the girls, they immerse themselves 101% and do all kind of silly things together. Now that Ayra is 5 and Zara is 3, both of them love creating their own stories and imaginative play. Mummy loves watching the show unfold in usually the most unimaginable way. The sky is the limit!

There are plenty of toys around the house, and Mummy does splurge a little too often showering the girls with new toys. Probably due to the guilt she has deep inside since she doesn’t spend as much time as she wished with the little ones. To keep them occupied and engaged, she buys toys and fun things for them.

One of the most common things she buys is building blocks from LEGO® , which the father get rather annoyed at. Because he hates stepping onto bricks around the house! But the girls love them, especially Ayra as she is now able to build a set on her own without any help. She will open the box, pour out all the bricks, look and follow the pictorial instructions and start building. Like this new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse playset, she built it all by herself in less than 10 minutes.

LEGO Duplo Building Better Play - Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Set
Following instructions and building her own play set. Zara helps along too.

After building the set, she’ll start to play and engage with her younger sister. Of cos, they do fight at times and snatch pieces from one another, but nothing stops them from fun play time. Mummy finds that she needs to learn such quick forgivingness from the girls. Adults tend to hold grudges longer, which is really unhealthy.

This new play set in the house is from the Disney Junior collection, LEGO® DUPLO® Mickey Mouse & Friends Beach House (10827).

Get your child sit Donald Duck in the speedboat and pull Goofy along on the wakeboard, while Mickey Mouse uses the camera to take pictures from the deck at his Beach House. Little Disney fans will love building and rebuilding this model with a fun vacation theme and creating their own role-play stories. This set comes with 3 LEGO® DUPLO® figures: Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy.

Accompanying the LEGO® DUPLO® sets, parents can now watch the LEGO® DUPLO® Buildling Better Play videos which were recently launched on YouTube. This series features 12 episodes led by child development experts who share useful information for parents – from building toddler confidence, social play and sharing, and developing motor skills with play, to making playtime feel special.

The Loving Mum has approved the play of LEGO® and LEGO® DUPLO® in the house and has been one of her choice gifts for children of her friends and relatives. For those searching for toys to give kids and has run out of ideas, you’ll never go wrong withLEGO® DUPLO® for the little ones and LEGO® sets for those 5 and above. Now you know what to get for the two girls for Christmas ya?

Now watch the two girls at play with their new LEGO® DUPLO® set…

Kiddet – One App. Countless Experiences For Your Child.

“Why isn’t there an app that allows parents to find, book and review classes and activities for our kids?”

That’s the question I had wanted to solve more than one year ago. I even had got the concept, user-experience, business model and all drawn out in my journal. But that’s where this idea stopped.

When I was first told about Kiddet through a friend… “That’s EXACTLY what I wanted to start!“. Of course I had got to meet the founders behind this app and find out more. I shall keep their identity a little mystery for now.

Kiddet is now available for FREE download on the Apple and Android Play stores.

Expand your child’s universe with fun learning activities island-wide. Kiddet connects you to the most exciting educational activities in Singapore.

I’ve been eyeing a few classes and activities to bring my girls, and I thought I should share them here with you too. Cos you don’t want to be the last to learn about the next coolest app for parents in town right?

5 Activities To Check Out & Book on Kiddet

Bounce Kids Dance Choreo Class at Kulture Studio

I’ve passed by Kulture Studio many times but never got a chance to step in yet. This Bounce Kids Dance class looks super fun and cool! Even I want to go jump and bounce to the tunes! Just check out the video below, super fun right?

Kulture Studio is the first to offer Bounce fitness programme in Singapore. Their Bouncefit classes are conducted via the accredited Jumping syllabus that combines fast and slow jumps, a variation of traditional aerobic steps and dynamic sprints, as well as “power sports” elements. This complex workout guarantees a full body strengthening after every jump. A great workout for kids 6 to 12 years old.

Trampoline Family Package for 2 Adults and 2 Children

If you prefer to jump and bounce together with your kids (without the music though), you can book for this Trampoline Family Package at Zoom Park Asia on Kiddet. We’ve not been there yet, this is one I’m going to book over this long weekend because Kiddet is giving away free 50 Kredits when you make your first booking from now till May 1st. (50 Kredits is approximately S$10 in value.)

Dramahaus at Trehaus

For families with younger children, you might want to search for “Trehaus” in Kiddet. They have a few interesting classes for babies 6 months to 6 years old. Dramahaus is where your child will let her imagination soar beyond their immediate sensory environment and into something new in their mind’s eye. Through stories, poems and rhymes, plenty of creative drama activities and they’ll get to develop their speech too.

Come in, Discover & Explore

Or if you prefer free play, you can check out Blue House Infant & Toddler Atelier at Clarke Quay. For 125 Kredits, your child gets 2 hours of free-play discovery and exploration of the Atelier, including materials. I’ve not been there personally, but from Tjin’s experience this place looks like a great place for kids 3 years and below. And super nice for photo taking too!

Workshop at The Little Things

One other recommended activity is for parents who want to spend some time together with your children. This parent-accompanied toddler workshop by The Little Things might just be the place to bake your first cookie with your toddler (without creating a mess in your own kitchen!).

Bonus 50 Kredits now till May 1st!

I’ve downloaded the app and purchased my Kredits. Now which activity should I book for my girls? Anyone wanna attend some classes together?
