Elly in Timeout Kid’s Guide Singapore


Did you know Timeout Singapore published its inaugural Kid’s Guide in June this year?

The Kid’s Guide covers a wide range of topics relevant for parents (and every Aunt looking for places to bring her niece to)! OK I skipped all the articles on parks / gardens / bike routes for kids / offshore islands and basically anything that involved being in the sun without the prospect of water being constantly thrown on you to cool you off. Also skipped the article on top 5 birthday cakes (if you’ve ever heard my wedding cake story, you’ll understand why I have no desire to order another 3D cake EVER AGAIN).

However, being the theme park fan that I am, I found the lists of water parksĀ and indoor playgrounds particularly useful. I’ve got more places to go to for water play other than our favourite Rainforest Kidzworld at the zoo!! And there’s nothing like an air-conditioned indoor playground with spongy flooring for my niece (and I) to run around. We usually head to Amazonia where it’s easy to find parking and it’s fairly central but there are at least 10 other of such playgrounds in Singapore!

You might also enjoy the Ice-cream Round-up and the listings of museums and discovery centers, especially since this August, Singaporeans and Permanent Residents enjoy free entry to National Heritage Board museums and institutions!

So if you’re wondering what to do this long weekend coming up, get a copy of Timeout Singapore’s Kids Guide for some tips! You can find them at newsstands, petrol stations and book stores (I found them at Kinokuniya)!

And, well whilst you’re browsing the magazine, take a look at the Shopping Guide which lists Elly as the place for “mini young fashionistas”. *beams*
