Now that my baby is able to crawl (super fast) and learning to stand and take small steps on her own, I find it a challenge trying to keep her out of the no-go zones at home and with the limited space at my mum’s place, its even tougher to have all her toys surrounding her for her to explore.
My temporary solution is to bring her to Hokey Pokey. First encounter at Hokey Pokey is on the day of shoot for Baby Essentials. She wasn’t able to crawl yet and I had to carry her from around to play. She had enjoyed it still and had a great night sleep that night. Brought her back again with my mum on a Saturday and she was all over the place. Grabbing toys from the shelves, crawling from one corner to another, pulling herself up to stand and reach for toys on high shelves or table and so much more activities! She kept herself occupied and had fun for an hour, till she realized her energy was running out.
So far, base on my online research, Hokey Pokey seems like the only place friendly and spacious enough for baby below 12 months. All other play houses were for older kids who can climb high and low and move around without parents supervision. They do have corner for young babies, but its not as fun and spacious.
NTUC card member is having 10% discount off their membership now at Hokey Pokey, so I’ve gotten Ayra her first membership. Now each day out at Hokey Pokey will be $15 instead of the usual $25.
If you’re interested, the annual membership is at $50, including 1 free play on day of sign-up and 1 free play on the child’s birthday month. Special rate for party package booking and also get 6 free drinks (one for each visit). Not too bad a deal don’t you think?
Will be bringing baby girl to Hokey Pokey at least once a month. Anyone wants to go together? More fun to have play dates for the little ones!
