Last November, Pororo Park Singapore opened at Marina Square and we have shared with you our review of the playground then.
Earlier this month, we were invited back to Pororo Park Singapore for another review and we were pleasantly surprised by the many changes they have made since their opening! I will not repeat myself everything I said 6 months ago, so in this post, I will only highlight the things that are new.
New Toddler Play Areas
One of the most striking changes we noticed immediately upon entering Pororo Park Singapore were the addition of three toddler play areas.
The first one nearest to the entrance, called Pororo Link, was surrounded by a ‘road’ where kids could push toy cars along.
And in the middle, there were two tables with toys for the kids to play with.
Next, there was a play area called Petty’s Supermarket, which you can guess what you can find there based on the name.
And in the third area, there were just some toys for small babies. Nothing that interested my 3 and 5 year olds – which was probably a good thing for the small babies and toddlers because *hopefully* the older children wouldn’t go and disturb them.
In my first review, I mentioned a Toddler’s Play area next to the Pororo House. That play area was still there, and they have added more toys to it.
Every month, Pororo Park Singapore will introduce new classes for visitors to participate in. Some of the classes have a nominal material fee ($2 – $5) to join, while some are free. I mean not exactly free since you have to pay for admission, but no additional fees on top of that.
Typically, classes that involved cooking and crafting would have a material fee.
Once you arrive at Pororo Park, you should enquire about the classes available for the day and sign your kids up because there are limited slots.
Classes catered for older children were generally not parent-accompanied and you can leave your child in the class while you go relax at the cafe.
While classes for younger children usually required parent-accompaniment.
One of the most interesting features of the classes at Pororo Park Singapore was the involvement of the mascots.
If you would like to find out what classes are happening each day before visiting, you can check the calendar of events on Pororo Park’s website. Note that the classes indicated by ‘M’ are members exclusive classes.
Member Exclusive Classes
Some of the classes were exclusively for members. For e.g. The kids yoga classes going on when we were there was a members-exclusive class.
For older children, again, the yoga class was not parent-accompanied. The boys had super a lot of fun following the instructor’s actions.
And the kids were all delighted when Loopy joined in and did yoga together with them!
The yoga class for babies and toddlers was parent-accompanied.
And Pororo made a short appearance during the class.
The member-exclusive classes also change every month, so check Pororo Park’s website for ongoing classes. I guess this gives visitors more incentive to sign up for the membership and visit every month!
Spend at Cafe for extra playtime
When we first visited Pororo Park Singapore, we didn’t have the chance to visit their cafe. This time round, I popped over and noticed a sign that said if you spend $15 at the cafe, you can get an additional hour of playtime!
June Holidays Promotion
All the photos in this post were taken during our May 2016 visit. As I mentioned, they change their activities every month, so if you are planning to visit Pororo Park Singapore during the June holidays, you will expect to find a different range of activities!
