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. I read more blogs for more information on keeping the kid active.Your House Fitness encourages parents to be active with their kids on a day to day basis.

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.

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.

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

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.

How Digital Discount Codes Influence Mums’ Shopping Decisions

The content of this article was put together using information provided by Valassis 2017 Coupon Intelligent report and details provided by Alex Papaconstantinou, CEO of Wikigains.com, a major coupon website that operates in the United Kingdom.

Any mum that goes shopping loves coupons and wants more bang for her buck. At the same time, any good marketer knows that understanding mums is key to any successful marketing strategy that targets this demographic.

When parents go shopping they usually look for deals on kids’ furniture, groceries, kids’ shoes and clothes, and things for the garden and house. Parents with young kids are generally loyal to certain brands. However, it’s important to note that they don’t always base their purchasing decisions on their favourite brands. According to a consumer study by Valassis, a leading intelligent media delivery company, coupons and in-store deals hold a lot of sway over what mums buy at the end. The UK-based study reveals that eight out of every ten parents make their buying decisions based on what’s on offer.

How Digital Discount Codes Influence Mums’ Shopping Decisions

Mum’s get influenced by vouchers

Speaking of coupons and shopping lists, they often go hand in hand. According to a recent study conducted by Kantar, most parents bring a shopping list with them to the store. However, discount codes can greatly influence the content of that shopping list.

Valassis’ study shows that 69% of the brand-loyal consumers don’t mind switching brands if they’re offered discount coupons. Of course, most of those consumers get their coupons via email or apps. For instance, let’s take a 50% discount coupon for a bottle of Mac Ivors Cider. Upon receiving an email containing that coupon, an average parent would immediately be more likely to buy that particular brand of cider over any other. Once again, the statistics support this theory. Approximately 20% of shoppers claim that their purchasing decisions are highly influenced by discount deals they get on their phones.

How Digital Discount Codes Influence Mums’ Shopping Decisions

Mums share vouchers

Interestingly enough, the influence of coupons and discounts doesn’t end at the purchase transaction. After getting a receipt, 53% of consumers scan it with their mobile device to receive cashback and reward points. As you might imagine, this gives marketers an opportunity to use reward programs in order to build future relationships with the consumers.

Unsurprisingly, according to the same research, 60% of consumers claim that they don’t mind sharing brand reviews. The percentage is even higher for people that use mobile phones or tablets; After a successful purchase, 79% of mobile phone coupon users are likely to share with their friends how much money they managed to save on a well-known brand.

 

Why understanding how vouchers work is important for marketers

It all comes down to happy mums influencing other mums and creating additional sales for the vendors. Friends and family can be key influencers. When stores release shareable discount coupons, they simplify the way mums communicate their satisfaction. Sharing can take place naturally, via blog posts, reviews of products they have used, or posting photographs of their kids using the products on Facebook and Instagram.

Thanks to mums serving as advertisers via Social Media or word of mouth, brands can easily impact the purchasing decisions of other mums. For this reason, many brands are starting to focus on reaching these out to mums and ensure they have a very positive shopping experience, whether that is online or offline.
