5. Ju Shin Jung (Guillemard Rd)

If the play area at the East Coast Park branch is too small for you, drive over to the branch at Guillemard Rd where there is a big ball pit to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy some smoky Korean BBQ.  Yeah yeah, escape from the heat to be smoked by BBQ. Read more…

6.  Fun at Giggles (Marine Parade)

A stone’s throw from East Coast Park, in the neighbourhood of Marine Parade, you will find another indoor playground, Fun at Giggles, which even has a water play area. Read more…

Yet another indoor playground near East Coast Park at the quiet hotel-cum-shopping centre Katong V.  Just to give you more options.  Read more…

8.  Happy Willlow (One KM)

And I am not done with indoor playgrounds! Don’t ask me why there are so many indoor playgrounds in this area, I complain about this all the time.  Over at One KM, you will find another indoor playground offering both pretend play and active play – Happy Willow. Read more…

9.  Fika Swedish Cafe (One KM)

Near Happy Willow, you will find Fika, a swedish cafe (yes, they serve swedish meatballs) where there is a small cooking set and some toys for small children to play with.  Read more…

10.  Charlie Brown Cafe (One KM)

If themed cafe is your cup of tea, head to Charlie Brown Cafe instead, also at One KM.  I’m really starting to love this shopping centre. Read more…

11.  Singapore Sports Hub Library

Singapore Sports Hub Library

Believe it or not, a library can actually be an out-of-the-box family fun outing venue.  While most libraries would frown on you if you attempt to have any fun there (other than silent reading kind of fun), Singapore Sports Hub Library has stuff for kids to play – including XBox Kinect machines, table soccer, giant chess, or simply lounge on the bean bags and watch some TV.  Read more on Growing with the Tans

12.  CIimb Central (Kallang Wave)

For older children, even if you can’t go outdoors, you can still get some workout! Scale up the rock wall at Kallang Wave’s Climb Central! Visit official website for more information.

13.  Food Fare (Kallang Wave)

Feeling hungry after all that sporty workout? The food court at Kallang Wave has a play area called Kids’ Arena – with sponge blocks for babies and toddlers to climb around and table soccer for older children.  Read more…

14.  Chocolate Origin (Kallang Wave)

Surely you need coffee along the day? For some super CUTE latte (don’t worry, they have hot or iced chocolate for kids), pop over to Chocolate Origin at Kallang Wave!  And unlike their other branches that only sold their oh-so-sinful signature chocolate cakes as a whole, the branch at Kallang Wave sold them in slices.  Mmmmm!! Read more…

15.  Car-Rousel (Kallang Wave)

Car-Rousell Kallang Wave - Cars Themed Cafe Singapore 02

Another themed cafe in the area, Car-Rousel is an automobile themed cafe at Kallang Wave.  With a petrol pump and car-shaped sofas to amuse the kids.   Read more

16.  McDonald’s (Stadium Boulevard)

Sometimes, you get into one of those days where you’re so lazy to think of what to eat that you just decide to go to McDonald’s.  (Especially now that there’s the ebi burger craze going on???) The McDonald’s at Stadium Boulevard has an AIR-CONDITIONED play area for kids.  Haze, McDonald’s trumped you.  Read more…

17.  La Barca Ristorante & Wine Bar (Goodman Arts Centre)

If it’s the weekend, head over to La Barca for some fine Italian dining.  While the bouncy castles may not be such a good idea in the event of haze or rain, they do have an indoor play room open on weekends!  Read more…

18.  Zaffron Kitchen (East Coast Rd)

Moving futher up East Coast Rd to UPPER East Coast Rd,  you will find Royals Cafe.  This popular halal cafe has a small Lego + Duplo play area and some books and magazines to occupy the little ones while you have a slice of cake.  I heard their cooked food is pretty good too! Read more…

20.  Quentin’s Eurasian Restaurant (Ceylon Rd)

Last but definitely not least, also in the vicinity, more exotic food can be found at Quentin’s Eurasian Restaurant – which is currently my favourite restaurant in my long list of eateries with play areas.  Awesome value-for-money food, awesome play area, awesome service.  Can’t get better.  Read more…
