Address: 3 Temasek Boulevard, #02-724 Tower 4, Suntec City Mall, Singapore 038983
After a long renovation, many of the shops at Suntec tower 4 have opened. I have fond memories of playdates at Hokey Pokey (which is now in Millenia Walk) and walking around the mall with a sleeping M in the carrier. Polliwogs recently (last month?) opened a branch here. This is super convenient for me. The east coast branch is not so easy to get to by public transport and Robertson Quay and Vivocity are a bit far for me to travel to, especially with so many other great playgrounds close by. Polliwogs is located on the second level, near to the escalators which lead up from the taxi stand entrance.
There is a McDonalds just opposite and some maternity/childrenswear/toy shops nearby. The Alive Museum is also here and looks interesting.
Entrance was $20 for M (almost 3 years old). It’s less for under 2’s ($13?). They also sell a value play pass which costs $125 for 2-12 year olds and $65 for under 2’s. This gives 7 visits, free flow tea and coffee and cafe vouchers ($20/$10 depending on age of child) plus 10% off bistro purchases. So all in all, it’s great value! Please be aware though that the conditions state that the cafe vouchers must be used where you buy the play pass. So if you plan on using different locations each time, that aspect might not work out well for you.
After entering, the shoe cabinets and locker room is on the left. Lockers cost $1. There is also a nursing/diaper changing room. Very handy. The facility is new so it was nice and clean.
On the right is the toddler area.
Z wasn’t with me on this occasion so we didn’t spend long in here. There are activity boards, see-saw playthings, a trampoline, small slide, and a bigger structure with one slide on either end. I think that she would have struggled to climb this structure.
There is a huge bouncy castle!
And three play areas. Two of which are connected on one level.
M really enjoyed her playtime. She managed to navigate all of the obstacles which sometimes causes a problem for her at other playgrounds (where ladders are too high etc). There is a lot of variety here. I accompanied her and after 1.5 hours I was exhausted!
And finally…the slide of doom
M was scared to go on this on her own at first so I decided to put her on my lap and go down. Big mistake. I worried that we were going to fast for her and put out my arms to slow down – causing a big graze on my elbow. Painful! But surprisingly, once she had been down once, she had the courage to go down herself. Go M!
Overall a great playground, especially for kids over 2. Cool de Sac has got competition!
