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.

Little-Planet-playland-review

Busy farmer!

 

Little Planet Playland review

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.

Little-Planet-playland-review

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!

Little Planet Playland review

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!

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!

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.

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.

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

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!

Lots of Pretend Play Activities at our Home

Suddenly,there are lot of pretend play activities at our home.Now our kid is 3.5 years old and his imaginative play activities are really interesting and fun!He started talking with an imaginary friend when he was just 2 years old.During that time he played with an imaginary friend and shared most of his thoughts after his playgroup sessions.That time I encouraged him for playing with his imaginary friend.At first I thought this can be due to his loneliness as there is no one at home during the daytime other than me.But I was wrong.After researching online,I understand these pretend playing activities and playing with imaginary friend is really normal and it is good too.

Pretend Play Activities

He is the Mr.Barber and having a Barber shop (hair salon)  for all his toy friends. 🙂

As per recent researches,those kids with imaginary friends are less shy and creative.Imaginary friend   also can be a source of comfort for them.I know it is true because I could see my kid was telling most incidents happened during his playgroup session with his imaginary friend.

Pretend Play Activities

He is the teacher.This is a session of his preschool (role playing at home)

Anyway,now he is a preschooler.Another year of his life milestones.This year,I see lot of role playing,pretend playing or imaginary playing.This year his activities are more serious or more organized.Sometimes he cooks adding many ingredients such as sauce,spices and even coconut cream!Sometime he washes clothes.Sometimes he is a teacher for his toys.

Pretend Play Activities

The explorer! He played in this indoor garden of National Museum of Phnom Penh,Cambodia pretending he is an explorer! 🙂

I really enjoy his such activities and sometimes I could photograph him.But sometimes,he stops his pretend play when he notices that I am watching him.That is why my photos are not so clear or bit shaky. 🙂

Anyway below is my favourite picture so far.Can you guess who is this charactor?

Pretend Play Activities

I thought he is role playing the super Man!But It is not.As per him,he is a Buddhist monk and he is wearing the robe.(On this day we were in Phnom Penh,Cambodia and visited few Buddhist Temples.We also talked with some Buddhist Monks)

How about your experiences?Do you experience pretend play activities of kids?Do your kids have imaginary friends?Please share your experiences and thoughts.
