Probably my favourite children’s indoor playground in Singapore out of the one’s that I’ve visited so far, it may be a little out of the way but it’s very worthwhile going to. Located in Yishun’s Northpoint City shopping centre, slightly hidden away on the 2nd floor of the South Wing, Sunshine Childhood Playland has several different play areas to keep your child occupied for hours on end.
Quite commonly found in most indoor playgrounds, there is the usual ball pit with slides as well as a huge screen where you can throw the balls at to hit the targets, in this case the fish! xD
There are pretend shops including a supermarket, bakery and doctor’s surgery as well as a merry-go-round!
They have a variety of different ride ons (a lot more than what’s in the photo below) so your child can explore the extensive area within Sunshine Childhood Playland on one of them.
There is an artificial snow area in which the “snow” is actually very tiny plastic balls that is apparently safe to play with (I’m not sure how safe it is for babies and toddlers that put everything in their mouth though). In this area you can find a range of toys as well as a mini slide ideal for smaller kids.
There’s a separate toy room with an assortment of educational toys as well as lego and even a mini grand piano. The large tv playing nursery rhymes and songs may be distracting for the younger ones though as they usually end up mesmerised by the screen instead of playing with the toys!
There’s also a small foam block building area, a swing and a trampoline.
Just outside Sunshine Childhood Playland, there are several UFO catchers and motorised vehicles but you have to pay a separate fee for these machines.
For those who have older kids that don’t need adult supervision inside the play area, there is a counter with chairs available so you can sit and relax with a coffee or even bring a packed lunch or your laptop to work on whilst keeping an eye on your child at the same time. Only one adult is allowed with each kid inside the play area complimentary (additional adults have to pay $5), but they allow any number of people to wait in the seating area.
There are cubby-holes for you to put belongings and shoes in as no shoes are allowed in the play area (socks must be worn) or you can use one of the lockers to lock up your possessions.
Admission prices start at just $10 for unlimited playtime for toddlers on weekdays which is excellent value and babies 12 months and under can go in free! They also offer memberships and value passes. For the full price list, click on the photo below.
Sunshine Childhood Playland is pretty quiet on weekdays compared to the weekends where it can get quite busy as well as on school holidays. The staff are generally friendly and helpful and they also tidy and sanitise the place frequently. Just as a word of caution, if your child is quite young, be careful of the foam wall next to the mini grand piano as when my toddler was playing with the piano, another child managed to push the entire wall down but fortunately I managed to prevent it from hurting my kid as I was standing over him, it is actually quite painful though if it falls on you! Besides that though, children will really love playing in Sunshine Childhood Playland, there’s so much to do that they won’t want to leave!
