Best Indoor Playground 9: The City
|Wear the costume and take photos at each station!|
in Singapore on 2012 as its first learning playground (winning 2 consecutive
awards as the best indoor playground in Singapore), The City supports children’s imagination and creativity by
giving them a platform to do so – enabling them to transform themselves into
Cooks, Cashiers, Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, Policemen and many more while
dressed in the respective uniforms and outfits. To further engage them, The
City provides realistic first-of-its-kind environments and scenarios where kids
can drive on mini streets, and explore small-scale real-life locations, such as
the supermarket, cafe, beauty salon, medical clinic and more.
|Cafe The City|
I brought my kids there and was pleasantly surprised that my kids enjoyed themselves. My girl loves to shop at the supermarket and she can safely do her shopping without the fear of disturbing others shoppers. The spoilt cash register didn’t lessen the fun for the kids.
|Professionally calculating the total of our purchases.|
There is no guided play at The City, unlike Kidzania. Instead parents are encouraged to play with their kids at the various ‘stations’. For instance, we were given a shopping list so the children can look for the items at the supermarket. At other stations like the cafe, I simply order some food and let my kid figure out how she has to cook that with what is available. This can be a con to some parents who may just want to leave their kids to play on their own or are not too sure how to creatively play with their children at each station.
(Birthday or others)
they have a standard package (with some free
play) and one with guided activities, each
