T-Play at HometeamNS

[ Media Invite ]

This is not Changi Airport, but an indoor playground in the West.
This is T-Play at HomeTeamNS Bukit Batok.

The Jumbo jet greeted us as we step into the playground during the Mar school holidays. There were many kids already running around and exploring the playground.

T-Play at HomeTeamNS’s tag line is “Fun in Motion“, and you will agree that the Transport- themed indoor playground will keeps kids moving along (literally).

Immigration counters, train cabin and Space shuttles!

Get ready your Passport and E-ticket to a world of fantasy and Fun (socks are needed)

A lot of tunnels for kids to hide.

Kids could not keep still, they can Run, Jump, Bounce non-stop.


Look outside and you can see real cars (L-plates) and a cute Hometeam-themed swimming pool (Police car, fireman etc)

Although T-play space might not look huge, but cleverly designed floorplan allowed us to maximise Fun, and kids got a lot of space to run around.

As kids stay mobile, parents can remain static at one corner with a sofa couch and enjoy some free time.

My kids loved this swing inside the train cabin, and could go endless rounds. Had to remind my kiddos not to do zipline or monkey-swings in our real MRT :p

Mini rock wall.

Who say T-Play is only for kids :p
T-Play has a poster somewhere “Adults friendly” (I am serious!), so parents can try the slides and obstacles too haha 🙂

The bigger “sister” (Admin) will entertain the kids by playing hide and seek or catching. At certain interval, they will organised games for the kids too.

Little ones can play with foams at this corner

Recently, we enjoyed a family outing with Canon.
Happy siblings spotted at an old playground at Dakota.

With our Canon Powershot G9x and fellow blogger friends, we hop between playgrounds and heritage sites.

First stop – Dakota Seal catwalk 🙂

We had featured this old school playground earlier (link), and the kids were eager to try the “fireman” pole.

To the kids, Seal is just another playground, situated in an older estate.

Weather was extremely hot, but it did not bother the kids. Swings and Merry-Go-round 🙂

We had fun pulling each other along on the flying fox.

Organisers did not forget to demonstrate some old-school games (and gems) to kids. Zero-point, shuttlecock, these were some of the games the parents played during their recess (decades) ago 🙂

After a hard day of playing, we needed some place to chill, and perhaps print out photos from Selphy 🙂

Fighting Monsters at POLW

[ Media Invite ]

Last Sat, we heard a distress call from Port of Lost Wonder (POLW).
Monsters are invading and heroes are needed to stop the invasion.

We dispatched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (Boon Yee) and Red Riding Hood (Boon Xin) to join the junior superheroes league. We must stop the monsters’ onslaught!

Before we hit ground zero, our kids did some warmup exercises with old playgrounds.

Superheroes have to register before they can enter POLW, Boon Xin found herself some allies.

Maze, Slime, Archery, Tattoo, cocktail, photo booth, all the ingredients for a wonderful party are ready.

Sengkang’s Heroes played Robin Hood and Hunger Games (sorry, bow and arrow always bring up this image). And Ghostbusting with SLIME too.

Spooky Junior at POLW is actually a Heroes and Halloween event and kids were encouraged to wear their superheroes costume along. The best dressed individual and family will stand to win attractive prizes.
(Check out Superman’s family and Snow Queen here)

Pumpkins and Monsters lurk around the corners, but juniors need not be scared as the monsters are quite kids-friendly. Some will gladly share their sweets and goodies too.

On the other hand, Poor Captain America and Wolverine were mistaken as baddies and harassed by the kids :p

The evening was not all about Fighting. Kids can glam it up at photo booth (One Eye Click).

Tattoo to make the kids look cuter (butterflies) or fiercer (incredible Hulk Green face).

Need additional juice? Concoct your own PowerUP or Self-healing potion to win the fight. Parents can also rent a Dracula costume to join their Superheroes kids.

Even Superheroes need to rest and eat, huge platter of Food and Pizza to reward their efforts 🙂

After dinner, they decided to bash more monsters in the foam pool.

Overall, it was an enjoyable evening for us. Boon Kang (not in costume) relish the opportunity to de-stress from his exam studies.

Rental of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and Red Riding Hood” costumes are kindly sponsored by Mymini-me. This was actually our first costume party and kids were happy with their own heroes makeover.
