  • Zaffron Kitchen (Website). Indian restaurant with small children’s area.
  • One KM – B1: Tom & Stefanie, level 2: nursing room, Happy Willow, level 3: Popular, My Imagination Kingdom


Tampines is a good area to visit with kids because you have three shopping malls within walking distance of the MRT and bus interchange. The public library is also only a short walk away and they have a large children’s section. The bus interchange has a nursing room.

Free stroller rental but you must deposit your IC. I was given a Maclaren Volo (no recline or hood). A few $1 ride-on’s in the mall (B1 and I think L4?)
  • Tampines Mall – level 3: Mothercare (very, very small), Popular

  • Tangs *No longer has a children’s section or nursing room (I checked at the end of 2013)

I’ve grouped the following three places together because they’re all within walking distance and pretty much all undercover too.
