Kiddy Fun at Grandstand Review


Update as at 28 Sept 2016, Kiddy Fun has ceased operations.

Even though we've been to Fidgets @ Grandstand twice, I've never noticed that there is another indoor playground -Kiddy Fun at the Grandstand!
It was only when I was googling online for more indoor playgrounds suitable for toddlers that I chanced upon Kiddy Fun at Grandstand.



Oh did I mention how much I love going to Grandstand? Considering the convenience and free parking there. Imagine my delight when I discovered yet another indoor playground alternative for Sticky Bean at the Grandstand!

We went there on Valentines Day morning, being a Saturday, we were pleasantly surprised that Kiddy Fun weren't as crowded as Fidgets. We were at Fidgets the other day on 2nd Jan, Friday, guess too many people were on leave that day given the long weekend and it was mad crowded and chaotic, I've to keep a really close eye on Sticky Bean to prevent her from getting pushed or trampled over by the older kids. I can't imagine the crowd on a Saturday over at Fidgets.
You can read my review on Fidgets @ Grandstand on a weekday over HERE

Kiddy Fun caters mainly to children below 6 hence the play structures and rides are suitable for toddlers and Sticky Bean had plenty of fun there! But older kids might get bored pretty fast there.
I love the pastels colours at Kiddy Fun and that the whole area is well padded so it's real babies and toddlers friendly.

The play structures are very similar to those at Singkids Playsystem and the fees are so reasonable at a mere $12 for 2 hours of play for babies below 18 months.



As you can see from the photo, it's not exactly a huge place but good enough for Sticky Bean and us. And yes that's the crowd on a late Saturday morning. It does get slightly more crowded after lunch, though.

she super loves this merry-go-round but prefers standing on it than sitting on any of the animals


Sticky Bean first station was this cute merry-go-round. She loves standing on the platform, though, instead of riding any of the animals.

But her favorite is definitely the following floating balloons station! She spent the most time inside there. Oh, do bring a jacket for your little ones as it is really cold at this station. There are 4 fans blowing from the top and it's really cold in there!

discovered the balloons and climbed up to explore

ah-ha! Caught a balloon





hello, mama!
Not too keen on this automated see-saw, though. I've to put her up there and she's been wanting to get off it.
guess she spotted something else more interesting

can't wait to get off the face

This ride is pretty similar to those spinning tea cups ride at an amusement park and it might be more suitable for slightly older kids? The cups can spin really fast and if you are not careful, the child may just fly out of it





Too big for Sticky Bean, she almost spun out of the ''cup''

Some kind of climbing structure which is obviously too advanced for Sticky Bean 

a revolving climbing tower where older kids can climb to the top looks fun

a swing, also too advanced for Sticky Bean. I tried to let her sit on it but this thing is moving too fast for her to handle
a carousel
A water-filled trampoline, which she doesn't really know how to jump yet




Attempting to climb up this helicopter-looking structure, which is too dangerous for her I think, she may just fall out of it easily.




 Kiddy Fun even had a babies / toddlers corner! It did entertain Sticky Bean for a short while.



Jump Baby Jump!!!



An area filled with foam blocks catering to the younger ones but Sticky Bean is not so keen here


She went ahead, climbed upstairs and discovered something more exciting


There's actually a ball pit and a bouncy area upstairs but I didn't manage to capture any photos argh.
Also, adults aren't allowed to enter..booo..It's a good thing that Sticky Bean can manage to get in and out of these 2 areas well. She didn't spend a lot of time in there as well


And for Daddies and mummies taking a break, there's a cosy area for us to rest too. It gives you the perfect view of your kids playing.


All in all, we fell in love with Kiddy FunSticky Bean had plenty of fun there, the play structures were suitable for her, the place was well padded and we don't have to hover around and watch her like a hawk. Fees were reasonable and yes we're definitely coming back! 

I'm even contemplating if we should sign up for their package..*grinz** Kiddy Fun has got to be our favourite indoor playground for Sticky Bean as of now!!

Psst..Sticky Bean is turning 17 months in  a couple of days! We should totally bring her there more often before she turns 18 months and the fee will jump to $18 instead of the current $12.

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.


We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …
