Marina Square Has A New Indoor Playground With A Barbie Zone, Bouncy Castle & Hot Wheels Race Track

Mattel Playhouse Singapore

Calling all parents who’re constantly on the lookout for places to entertain the kids, here’s one more to add to your list – Mattel Playhouse. Newly opened at Marina Square, the playhouse features brands that were our favourites as kids including Hot Wheels, Barbie, and Thomas & Friends. 

The kids will get to go on a race track, pretend to be Barbie, and enjoy a train ride. Parents, be warned – you’re gonna have a hard time dragging them out of the this indoor playground.

Zoom around on the Hot Wheels track

Think you’ve got a champion racer in the making? Let the kids try their hand at driving a mini 4-wheel drive on the iconic orange and blue Hot Wheels race track.

If your little one is a little apprehensive about taking the wheel so soon, they can still experience racing and competing with others through the immersive game station.

Those who enjoy monkeying around can have fun at the one next to the Hot Wheels track where they can climb tyre walls, bars and ropes.

Instagrammable stations at the Barbie corner

Any 90s kid would have sung along to the tunes of Aqua’s Barbie Girl. Now your kid can too. Following the theme of “You can be anything”, the rooms here feature different setups for different professions such as gymnasts and artists.

All the divas in the house who love playing dress up and prancing about like a little pop star will love the party room that comes complete with a DJ console and disco ball. It’s a good chance to let your hair down and party with the kiddos.

Future fashionistas can dress up Barbie in costumes using their imagination and pencils at the colouring station. They then get to show off their creations on a barbie wall where their drawings will be scanned, enlarged and projected.

Nothing screams Barbie like a hot pink bouncy castle. The kids can jump, run, and play without getting hurt thanks to the inflatable insulation.

The Barbie section also has a few photo booths with props so you can populate your IG feed with cute photos of the kids playing dress-up.

Thomas the Tank Engine train ride and arcade games

Fun in the ball pit & sandpit

The fun and games don’t end there. Kids can get their hands dirty at the sandpit or dive right into the ball pit. We all know how much they love that stuff – they seem to never want to leave.
