Polliwogs @ VivoCity!

Our Saturdays are kept fairly free and wide open this year as I really want to 'slow down' and enjoy Dumpling as much as I can and spend as much time as I can with her. Usually we would head to the gardens / play dates / catch a movie or a play or head to the play ground. Last Saturday however, she was in for a little surprise! I did not tell her that we were heading to Polliwogs till the morning itself! 

Now, if you have not heard, Polliwogs has a new outlet at VivoCity! It is located on level 3 (near Marche) towards the direction of the link bridge to HarbourFront. Dumpling was clearly excited as she was raring to burn her beans. :)

She had a great time there and basically hung around only at her favorites spots. Here's sharing her top 5 picks!

:: 1. Toddler's corner
Well, it is not technically named as that I'm sure but this is where I saw most toddlers hanging out at. This part of the gym spots the popular carousel and ball pit in addition to mini tea cup rides.

:: 2. Flying Fox
Dumpling loves thrilling rides so not surprisingly, this is still one of her top favorite activities at Polliwogs. She'd giggle and kick her legs in glee as she 'flew' from one end to the next. 

:: 3. Spider Maze
I am not sure if this is the official name but that's what Dumpling calls it. Along with her close gor gor friend DinoBoy, they spent almost 3/4 of their time there! This is basically a 2-layer grid like strips with a trampoline below. So how do the kids get across without falling into the 'pit' and be eaten up by the 'spider' Aragog (yes, we watch too much of Harry Potter, I know...)? Here, Dumpling and DinoBoy show you the steps:

Step 1: 
Enter into the web slowly. The idea is not to fall through but stepping onto the purple layer...

Step 2: 
Hold onto the first layer (pink) and use that as a support and walk through slowly

Step 3: 
Step onto the blue padded edge and use it as a step to crawl up

And of course, finish off the obstacle course with a Kodak moment shot!

:: 4. 'Rock' climbing
Now, if I were to be perfectly honest, I was itching to give that wall a go... Took me a while to convince Dumpling to try but Z was great at giving her a hand leg (in this case...)


And this is where I could wait no more and... 

Tada! Scaled the wall! So, you parents will be happy and relieved to know that the wall withstood the weight test and didn't even budge despite having the not-so-lightweight me on it!

Am happy to say that after my demo, Dumpling caught on and managed to scale all the way to the top!

:: 5. The Swing!
Though Dumpling did not hang around here for a long while, each time she passes it, she will swing on it for some time. And swing and spin she'd go... Even leaning as farrrrrrr back as she can... Maybe she has the right idea, perhaps it is good to have a different perspective, a different angle at times!

And as always, a parting shot from us! :) It was a good morning of FUN FUN FUN!

Disclosure: We were invited to Polliwogs @ VivoCity for the purpose of sharing my experience. No monetary compensation was received though Dumpling got to play with her close gor gor friend DinoBoy while mum here got to yak a bit with some blogger friends. Photos of the flying fox and rock climbing are taken by good friend, DinoMama. For the record, I would like to add on that none of the photos was edited in anyway. I am eternally grateful to DinoMama for ensuring that the shots of my rear are smaller than that of a bus.
