LOL Playland – Indoor Playground @JCube, Jurong East (#Review + Giveaway)

Visit to the LOL Playland is our latest adventure! Located at the JCube shopping mall, Singapore; this LOL Playland is a dream for any active kid who loves to engage in both active play and pretend play activities. These days I visit many Singapore indoor playgrounds with my kid because I know the importance of actively engaging in play activities for the kids. So, here is my share with you because I know that parents around this blog are keen on raising active and happy kids!

LOL Playland-singapore-review

I am sure that you want to visit this newly opened Singapore indoor playground with your kids when you read this post about our experiences. Simply because, the experiences which my kid had are unique or not so typical!

Bit of Background Story of LOL Playland

LOL Playland is not just another typical indoor playground in Singapore. It is a dream of another mom who wished to have an indoor playground in Singapore West area which has facilities for both active play and pretend play activities. With proper planning and efforts, finally the LOL Playland is born with both active play and pretend play facilities for kids.

As LOL Playland is with many activities for kids of all ages, I think it is better to write my review post based on activities which kids can involve inside the playground.

Activities for kids in LOL Playland @JCube

Toddler’s House

LOL Playland-Singapore-review

Toddler’s house includes both active play and pretend play facilities for young kids.

The name says it all. The Toddler house is designed for toddlers. But my son who is nearly 3.5 years old now spent most of his time inside the toddler house and engaged with many activities.

LOL Playland-Singapore-review

After shopping around,he is ready to pay at the cashier! 🙂

Toddler house is in pretty decent size and allow facilities for young kids to play both pretend play and active play. The first floor area is full of toys which are especially suitable for kids to engage in imaginary play activities. Some of the activities include shopping, selling ice-cream and cooking. There are also activity boards which toddlers can spend time on activities such as solving maze.

Role Play activities (Pretend play)

On the middle of the LOL Playland, you will find 3 rooms which are designated to role play activities for kids. Kids can dress up as a doctor, fire fighter or as a policeman and engage in role playing. The rooms are equipped with necessary toys for role playing these professions giving the kids opportunity to explore their imaginations!

Role Playing facilities for kids

I love this facility as not all indoor playgrounds in Singapore come with role play activities like this.

Main Playground for kids

LOL Playland-Singapore-review

Active play area for kids….

Other than main activities of the playground which are active play and pretend play, this LOL Playland provides educational activities for kids making it a complete edutainment center. One side of the playground is equipped with tables for those kids who love colouring. The other side is with a table with sensory play activities. So, kids will never get bored as there are different activities which they can involve during their time in the LOL Playland.

Our Review of LOL Playland, Jurong East

LOL Playland Jurong East-Review

So far, I’ve visited different indoor playgrounds in Singapore with my kid. Some playgrounds such as Pororo Park are large in Size. Other playgrounds such as My Little Giant are with other entertaining activities for kids.

However, LOL Playland is decent in size, pretty decent in look and neatly arranged with facilities for all kids of different age groups. As there is a separate Toddler house, parents do not have to worry about their toddlers playing with active and grown up kids.(I mean the place is safe for young toddlers too)

Role playing activities are the best admirable activities for me as these days my kid shows more interest on pretend playing activities. All these activities are really worth for the entrance fee we have to pay.

If you consider raising happy and healthy kids,I am sure you love to visit such playgrounds with your kids to allow them to play till they get tired!

The Groovy Giraffe – Online Bookstore Singapore for Children’s Books #Review

The Groovy Giraffe is our latest finding for buying children’s books online for really affordable rates. We love our experiences. So, this is my Groovy Giraffe review which will be helpful for you to decide on your next book purchase for your kids!

We all know that reading to our kids is one of the best things which we can do from their early stages of life. I started reading books for my son when he was just few months old. Now we continue the same habit and we have established a bed time reading routine too. There are many advantages of reading books for kids including improving the communication skills, better literacy, academic skills and mastering the language. There are many more reasons to read with kids. Reading will also develop a stronger relationship between the parent and the kid. With all these reasons, we always surround our kid with age appropriate books for him to read including the books from the library.

The Groovy Giraffe Review

The Groovy Giraffe #Review

However, it is not a secret that children’s books are quiet expensive if you buy those from a local book store. This can be a reason for some parents to not to buy books for their kids. But, you can easily buy books from online bookshops as most of the bookshops sell high quality books for affordable rates. Most of the time, online bookshops sell the books for a rate lower than the local book store.

What is Groovy Giraffe?

The Groovy Giraffe review

Have you heard of The Groovy Giraffe? The Groovy Giraffe is the Singapore’s first online children’s remainder bookstore. You can find brand new, high quality books there for a really lower rate. The books are not second hand or used books. Instead, these books are directly from the publishers which are over printed or with minor shelf wear marks.

Are the books selling at the Groovy Giraffe, brand new?

The books at The Groovy Giraffe   are brand new and overprint books which may have some minor shelf wear. However, you will notice the heavy discounts which you can obtain from the remainder books.

But, I know you have doubts about the quality of the books, right? Then, see the pictures below. The books I ordered are such remainder books which are heavily discounted. Some books are of over 60% discount. However, all the books we bought are of great quality which I can’t even find any remainder mark.
