We started 2016 with an amazing time at Kaboodle Kids!
A different sort of indoor playground; Kaboodle Kids is also known as an Imagination Playground. Here you get nearly 500 big blue blocks to roll, build, carry and even sit on!
Located at Block B, Level 2, East Coast Parkway (Big Splash), it boast of a sizeable play area for kids’ imagination to run wild. No pre-built slides or playgrounds here; instead our little ones are free to build their own play structures. Everything is only limited by your imagination. No worries if you are concerned about where and how to start. Here, the staff (play crew) is adept in engaging children in free play with the blocks. There are also helpful guide books if you are more adventurous to create bigger structures.
Kaboodle Kids encourages learning through playing, social development, motor skills and of course good old fun! Accordingly to the founder and director Tan Mui Jin: “Kaboodle Kids is different and unique from other traditional playgrounds in that we are Singapore’s first indoor playgrounds of its kind to use Imagination Playground exclusively”.
Granted you might see similar small quantities of such blocks in other indoor playgrounds, but Kaboodle Kids allows exclusive space to be creative which might otherwise be limited elsewhere.
Initially I was concerned if these were sufficient to keep my 2 energizer bunnies occupied and interested. My worries were unfounded. Both boys asked to stay for the maximum time we were invited for and requested to return for more!
With children of fellow bloggers, they turned the whole place upside down! Fortunately, they won’t be reprimanded for making a mess. Instead, they are encouraged to develop their cognitive skills as they go about playing.
Rest assured, The staff here clean up the whole place every night and re-assemble impressive structures to welcome enthusiastic young ones everyday.
After we paused for a quick lunch, the play crew got the whole place back to looking great again!:
Talking about lunch, there is a Party Room which can be rented in conjunction with celebrations. We were kindly treated to a different sort of party fare catered from Pondok Gurame – which is located within the vicinity. Yummylicious Indonesia food goes down very well with the adults (especially those who love spices – ME!). Special non-spicy portions for the children can be requested too. You can choose to bring in your own caterer or opt to carter from the various food establishments (e.g. Sakae Sushi) which Kaboodle Kids collaborate with.
After lunch, the young troop seemed to regain more energy and could go on for hours if we didn’t put a stop to it. 😀
If you didn’t have enough fun, there are also these cutesy little and mini blue blocks which you can purchase and continue the fun at home albeit in a smaller scale!
