Kiddy Fun at Grandstand Review
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|
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|
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|
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
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 Fun, Sticky 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.
