Little Planet Playland Review & Giveaway

Little Planet Playland is the best place for pretend play activities for kids in Singapore! Yes, I am telling so because I spent time with my kid at this wonderful indoor playground and it is a great place for pretend playing. With soft colours and spacious rooms, the Little Planet Playland is equipped with mainly facilities for 6 pretend play activities. But, you know the behavior of kids. They will create lot of imaginations into the reality when they are surrounded with lot of toys. It was same with us. My kid played happily in these pretend play activities and even he created some of his inventions! This is why pretend playing is important for kids as a brain activity!

Little Planet Playland review

As my kid is so much into pretend playing these days, our visit to the Little Planet Playland was remarkable. Though there are hygiene practices and health checks at the entrance, he couldn’t wait to enter into the playground as he was much excited just by the view of it! Below is our Little Planet Playland review and experience. Hope you love to visit this amazing playland after reading our experiences because we also love to visit there again!

Fishing area

Little Planet Playland review

Although the farm area is located near the entrance, my kid ran into the fishing area. May be it is because fishing is a new experience for him. He loved to try fishing while sitting on the boat.

The fishing area is one of the pretend play stations in Little Planet Playland which provide facilities for fishing. There are lots of sea creatures around the boat which kids can use to catch them using the magnetic fishing rods.

Little Planet Playland review

It’s really interesting. Not only the kids will play with fishing activities, they also will learn names of the sea animals and also the different colours.

Market Area

Little Planet Playland review

This market at the Little Planet Playland is full of vegetables, breads & buns, fish and other groceries which kids can enjoy their time in shopping. There are trolleys for them to collect all the things they buy from the supermarket. It is really fun and I could see most of the kids in the playground enjoyed this activity.

Farm & soil ground

Little Planet Playland review

Farm is another interesting play station which provides facilities to pretend like harvesting the crops and planting those again. With the provided wheelbarrows and other farm tools kids can easily pretend like a farmer.

Busy farmer!

Next to the farm, there is a soil ground. At first I thought this area is for sand playing. But, it is not sand. This soil ground is with some clean seeds which is helpful for kids to use as the soil medium.

Kitchen & café

Little Planet Playland review

Though my kid is a boy, he loves cooking. Usually he spends time at the pantry area with his own cooking when I prepare our meal. So, the kitchen area is one of the best places for him to play.

The kitchen and café area of the Little Planet Playland is a complete kitchen. It includes pretend play kitchen items such as cookers, oven, sink and also necessary pots, pans and cutlery.

Busy at the kitchen!

Once cooked, kids can enjoy their meal at the café area. Isn’t this a fun activity for little kids?

Castle

Little Planet Playland review

Let your kids to role play like a prince and princess at the castle area. In this play station, you will not only find a castle but also costumes to pretend as royal members! The photo booth is really great to capture a snap of the kids with their royal dresses. But, I am sure instead of posing for a photo, they will sure run around the castle same as my kid did!

Costumes for kids!

Forest maze

Little Planet Playland review

The forest maze area is really interesting. It is located near the entrance and just before the fishing area. Kids can walk through the forest maze and pick fruits in to baskets. They can even enjoy time with picnic activities. And don’t forget the hide and seek! We loved our experience there. So, I am sure you will!!

Party Room

Little Planet Playland review

Little Planet Playland also includes a party room which you can book for your kid’s party. The party room is clean and neat with decorations. If you like to host your kid’s birthday party at the Little Planet Playland, you can choose one of the party packages!

Our thoughts about Little Planet Playland

We enjoyed our time there. Not only my kid, I also joined with pretend play activities to encourage my kid. It was so much fun. And it was great as I could spend time with my kid with activities he likes. This is a great playground for parents to spend time with kids. Unlike with active playing, you may need to talk, pretend and play with kids when they are role playing or in pretend play activities. Finally, that will improve the bonding time!

How to Select the Right Preschool?

Selecting the right preschool is one of the important tasks when the kids reach their preschool age. Although there are many preschools available, as parents we should have some idea on how to choose the right preschool depending on various facts. As my child reached preschool age and started preschool this year, we had the same doubts when selecting a preschool for him. Therefore I think it is good to share some of our experiences as these ideas may help you to select the right preschool for your kid too.

Consider the teaching method

As early education is really important for your kid, you also need to have some idea on different early education philosophies. Some common approaches are Montessori, play based and academic preschools which gives some hint on how the preschool activities are created. Anyway there are preschools which use combine philosophies, but there are preschools which use one approach such as Montessori Method. For example, Richmond Hill Montessori ,Plano,Texas carries their programs according to the Montessori approach. Therefore the classrooms of the preschool are equipped with Montessori materials to give better learning environment for the kids.

When you know these terms clearly, you can easily decide on the right preschool for your kid.

Do your research

If you ask your friends, colleagues and family members who have young kids, they will give you loads of ideas regarding the preschools. I also did the same at the time my son was attending playgroup classes. For me, selecting a preschool was a really new experience as I am from another country. However, the details and information I received from my friends and other parents of playgroup kids were really helpful to shortlist few preschools before we decide on one.

Visit the preschool before deciding

This is the next step I did before choosing a preschool for our kid. I shortlisted few preschools and then started visiting the schools. Although the preschool near my place was full, I also did not attract the place as it was too crowded with kids. I found a preschool which is in some distance to my home with a peaceful environment which I believe is essential for young kids to learn. These can be your personal choices. However, by visiting few preschools, you can easily select the right one which suits with your expectations.

When you talk with the teachers or principal, you can easily clear any doubts you have regarding the preschool. This is really important and you will also understand how the school communicates with parents.

Above are the steps I followed when we select the preschool for our kid. So far our experience is really good with the new preschool and my kid happily wakes up in the morning to go to the school. I hope these tips are helpful for you too. If you have any other ideas, please share those below, so that others can get the benefit!
