My Little Giant @ BigBox (Indoor Playground)

Sunday, 25 September 2016

Hooray for those living in the west! A new indoor playground has just recently popped up at Jurong East. Located at BigBox, My Little Giant is the latest indoor playground that has just opened.


Update: 
My Little Gym has announced their official pricing, Check out the end of the post for the fees structure. 

Since it is newly opened, My Little Giant is offering a special opening rate - $12 for Monday to Thursday and $16 for Friday to Sunday, Public Holidays and Eve of Public Holidays. Children below 3 years old pay half price. I would say that the price is very reasonable. And the best part? It is unlimited playtime on all days!! This promotion is valid till 30 September 2016, so do check it out quickly!!

We checked out the place and the boys definitely had a wonderful time. There are 3 levels of play with lots of activities for everyone. I said everyone because not only the boys, Daddy J and me enjoyed the playground too. Parents however, have to be prepared to walk bending down or kneeling down if you want to climb the structure with your kids.

Kids Arcade Entertainment Centre


As with all indoor playground, before we can jump into play, we need to remove our shoes. The shoes area is just beside the playground.


As we walked towards to shoes area, we saw something like an arcade for the kids. There were some game machines, ride-ons, a carousel and a train. There are also some excavators which is like those from Diggersite. However, these are not included in the tickets to My Little Giant. You will need to pay separately for these.



Ball Pit


After settling our shoes, we proceed to the entrance. Before entering, we were given a tag which can be used for re-entry.


Upon entering, the first thing we saw was the ball pit. This is every child's favourite. Leading to the ball pit is the big white slide (more about this later).


At one end of the ball pit, there is this structure that blows air out of the holes. The boys were fascinated to see the balls floating and trying to hit and catch them as they fly.



Of course, lying down in the ball pit is a must-to-do!


The Big White Slide


At the other end of the ball pit, is the big slide which starts from the third level of the play structure. A word of warning, this is not for the faint-hearted. Although, it doesn't seem very high, it is very slippery and it goes very fast! I went a few rounds with the boys and I felt quite frightened as I sit waiting for our turn to go. However, I really enjoyed the ride down. Another word of caution, do make sure that there is enough balls at the bottom of the slide to cushion your fall before you slide. Small J went once and hit his head on the slide at the bottom because there wasn't enough balls to cushion as he slides down.

The plus point is they have two staffs to tend this station. One at the top to control the queue and one at the bottom to push the balls to the slide.


Big J was initially very reluctant to go on the slide as he thought it is very scary. The very friendly and helpful staff actually slide down together with him for quite a few rounds!


At the end, he was able to slide down himself with the help of the sliding sack. In his words, this sack helps to protect him.


Toddler Area


As we move further into the play structure, there is an open area for younger children. There are some rocking horses, see-saws, car ride-on and mini gym balls for the little ones to play. Do note that this area is quite dark as this is the most bottom level of the play structure and is not as bright as the photos showed.




The open area is shown in the background of this photo. The ball pit is at the far right corner and the trampoline is on the left. The rest is open space and stairs that lead to the second level.


Trampoline


In the far corner of level 1 of the play structure is a trampoline. Jump, jump, jump!!



Climb Climb Climb


Proceeding to the next two levels, this is where all the climbing starts. Parents, be prepared of lots of back-bending exercise! There are lots of climbing up stairs, through obstacles and tunnels.







Bounce Bounce


Ok, I have no idea what is the name of this structure. Let's call it bounce bounce. Children can sit on it and bounce away.


Air Guns


Also located on the second level, are the air guns. If I remember correctly, there are about 8 or 9 air guns. What I like about this the balls are shot at an enclosed area so we don't have to worry about flying balls hitting us. However, the downside is, the balls are mostly stuck in the middle of the net and there are not much balls at the side of the net for us to take. I also feel that the guns are positioned too high or perhaps these are meant for older kids?


Small Slides


If your kids can't take the big slide, there are also some smaller slides which they can try. These are located at level three of the play structure and are safer for younger children. Apart from these two, there is also a spiral tunnel slide which I didn't managed to take a photo of.



Mini Train


Located on level 3 is a mini train. Your child will need to turn the handle in a cycling manner to drive the train. Unfortunately, the handle is quite difficult to turn and requires lots of strength. As you can see from Small J's expression, he is using all his strength trying to drive the train.



Verdict


Considering the promotional price, My Little Giant is definitely worthwhile to visit! There are lots of fun activities to occupy the kids and they had so much fun! Not forgetting that it is for unlimited playtime, weekends included! We played for about 5 hours and took a lunch break in between. As the place is new, everything is new and clean! The staffs were also very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back again.

Here's a video of the boys in action.


Fee Structure

Unlimited playtime on all days!! I would suggest to go on a weekday as it is cheaper and less crowded!!
