It was the first day of school holiday. So, the Husband and I took a day off from work to bring Little Edison out for some fun. We visited Hokey Pokey – a brand new indoor playground at Suntec City where children can enjoy active play in a safe and air-conditioned environment.
To be honest, we entered Hokey Pokey with minimal expectations. After all, we’ve been to The Polliwogs, SingKids Playsystem, Amazonia and ExplorerKid. In addition, our 5-year-old boy might be too old for indoor playground, little ride-ons and basketball hoops.
But much to my surprise, this place is entirely different! I’ll tell you why…
At Hokey Pokey, there is a huge selection of toys. I mean REALLY HUGE selection that will make a child brimming with joy and bursting with happiness. Look at all these pictures – you’ll get what I mean.
Little ride-on cars in assorted colours and models – best for the active toddlers.
Role-playing toys are plenty here – he can be a doctor, a cook, a musician or a nurse. At last, he said he want to sell coffee at KopiTiam! *faint!*
Personally, I was amazed to see the wide range of entertaining and educational toys at Hokey Pokey. I strongly believe they went through a careful selection by the team at Hokey Pokey to encourage imaginative and creative play among the children.
You can also find the big-tickets items like Little Tikes Classic Castle, Playhouse and Microsoft Xbox 360 here. Amazing, isn’t it?
Little Edison’s favourite is the slide, definitely. He ran up the stairs, slide down in different manners and landed in the ball pit. He burst into laughter every time he was submerged beneath the balls.
Roll beneath the balls, roll, roll, roll…
I know that all of us care about our children’s welfare and safety. This place does not have any challenging slides or very high structures. I should tell you that everything seemed very well-maintained and safe here. Surveillance cameras are installed in the room, hand-sanitizer is provided at the entrance and temperatures are checked prior admission to the playground.
Hence, I can really relax, sit back and let our boy explore the playground on his own.
If you’re looking for a unique venue for your children’s birthday party, Hokey Pokey is an option for you. With various party themes to choose from – Cars, Mickey Mouse, Disney Princess etc, they will definitely bring a smile to every children’s face.
At Hokey Pokey, shoe shelves are available inside the facility and please be reminded to bring your socks too. You can also purchase them here, if you need one. You’ll also be happy to know that lockers are provided free-of-charge. So, you can safely lock your bags and valuables in the lockers before entering the playground.
All in all, I would say that Hokey Pokey is a great place for children from 6 months to 6 years old. Even older kids like Little Edison had lots of fun here. And I bet he will be bugging me to bring him to Hokey Pokey again this weekend.
I find that the admission and membership fees are very reasonable too. The admission fee entitles entry for 1 child and 1 accompanying adult. Upon signing the membership, you’ll enjoy on-the-spot free admission, discounted admission fees on your subsequent visits, free drinks, discount on birthday party, a welcome goodie bag and many more.
These are the admission fees and March opening promotion. Great deal, check it out!
