The Polliwogs

I didn’t know that this kiddie wonderland exist in East Coast Park until I read my friend, Gui Wei’s blog. So, we made a trip to The Polliwogs last weekend.

The Polliwogs is Singapore’s newest premium family and children recreation centre with game facilities such as an indoor play maze, a giant outdoor inflatable bouncy and a large toddler area. It is located behind Waraku Restaurant, beside Burger King and about 5 minutes walk from the McDonald’s at Marine Cove. If you drive, the nearest car park will be C3.

The area is bright, spacious and clean. It has three party rooms, an outdoor bouncy castle (Polliwobbly) and a lounge with child-sized sofa, free drinks, computers and magazines for the adults. The indoor play maze has three levels of climbing equipments, lots of tunnels, obstacles, slides, ball guns that shoot little rubber balls and a large ball pit. The toddler play area has shorter slides, a smaller ball pit and a level area for play.

Little Edison was extremely excited as he ran into the play area. He climbed up the maze, crawled through the tunnels, went down the slides, rolled in the ball pit and shot little rubber balls. I and Hubby followed him around as he ventured the whole area. We were so tired as we had to constantly bend our backs to move through the area but Little Edison was still as active as a Duracell rabbit! We were like hamsters running in a hamster cage!

The happiest of all was actually my helper. We forgot to pack her socks, so she waited for us at the lounge. She spent a good 1.5 hours drinking coffee and reading magazines while I was sweating in the play area! (Parents, do remember to pack socks for everyone before you visit The Polliwogs.)

In the lounge, there are plenty of seats for the adults to rest and relax. Vending machines are available with snacks and drinks such as juices, milo and milk. There is also free flow of coffee and tea. There is a nursery room as well as a children’s toilet.

I went to enquire about their party packages. Their party packages start from $438 for up to 10 children and every additional child at $30. The Poco’s Petite Party offers private party room for 2 hours, full access to The Polliwog’s play arena and The Polliwobbly, a special gift for the birthday child, personalized invitation cards etc. There is also a party host to organize the party and conduct games. Food for adults can be arranged with additional charges.

After a good 1.5 hours spent at the play arena, we had to drag Little Edison out of the place as he refused to leave! We took a stroll along East Coast Park, it was so windy and the weather was fantastic. Little Edison dozed off in his pram – this Duracell rabbit finally ran out of battery!

This place guarantees heaps of fun for your kiddos. Let’s check them out if you haven’t been to The Polliwogs.

      Hi Sammi,
      There is no age restriction, as long as the kids are still interested in the games… 🙂

      Hi Mico,
      Yes, it’s free for adults. I think 13 mths is still too young lor… immune system not strong yet, so they can get infected easily.. furthermore, the facility is so big and there are so many balls and visitors… even if they sanitize the place daily, they can’t prevent virus from spreading…
