Kids Play @ Vivo City Shopping Mall Singapore

Finally, after 5 years of being a mother.. I set foot at Vivo City's play area at level 2 for the second time. The last time I went was when my first born was slightly less than 1 year old. We weren't very impressed with it the first time.. kind of like disappointed since Vivo is a bit far off and crowded and there were just sprinklers and some weird figures that my toddler couldn't play with. We actually thought that we were at the wrong place. After that, we didn't venture to Vivo anymore.

This time around, we headed to Vivo City since we were at Bugis and we wanted to go to Toys R Us, went to Suntec City just to be disappointed that Toys R Us is closed -among other areas in Suntec-  as Suntec City is undergoing phased renovations. So, we tried Vivo City.

We parked at Tower A at Vivo City to get the lift that is next to Toys R Us, went straight to Level 2 and my goodness the kids went crazy over the sheer size of the Toys R Us and the range of toys available there. Yes, after 4 years of staying in Kuala Lumpur, I have come to realize that not all Toys R Us are created equal :p Toys R Us Singapore wins hands down any time over Toys R Us Malaysia.

After Toys R Us, we headed to Burger King for lunch and while the kids were eating, I went to check out the play area which is just outside Burger King. I was pleasantly surprised that the play area at Vivo City has improved. The weird figures are still there, but they have also added in some swing structures, a small tunnel for crawling, an artifical grass over a cement mount that can act as a slide or a mini hill, and also some kiddy ride (that you have to pay for). Around the play area there are also a few kids shops that has activities for kids such as sand art and a kids lounge (all with a fee). For muslims, halal food options near the play area are Long John Silver's, Burger King and Secret Recipe.

One level up is a wading pool ,but I didn't go up to check, try checking out other blogs. I kind of remember reading about other kids going into the wading pool but please check the details again whether it is permitted or otherwise. To me, the wading pool didn't really look very interesting.

Don't worry about your child getting wet (just bring a towel and a change of clothes) as there are ample baby room provided. 

Now, that we now where to park to get easy access to the play area, we might just go to Vivo City more often with the kids :)
