PLAY by KinderPlay at Changi Airport

Adding to the long list of kid-friendly things to do at Changi Airport is PLAY by KinderPlay, a Cartoon Network-themed playground at Terminal 3. Having opened in 2020, it’s one of the newer indoor playgrounds in Singapore, and well worthy of an Eastside expedition with the fam.

From $12/hour, your little one can journey through numerous different play zones themed after beloved characters from Ben 10 and The Powerpuff Girls.

Mega ball pit, bouncy balloon zone & obstacle course

PLAY by KinderPlay is split into several play zones so your kid can take his or her time exploring each section. One of the most eye-catching and popular areas upon entry is the Mega Ball Pit, filled to the brim with multi-coloured balls.

Besides allowing your kiddo to wade around for some sensory fun, the mega ball pit is fitted with rows of slides and a curious “anti-gravitational wind machine”. Jets of air are blasted upwards so when a ball is placed on top, there’ll be a cool levitating effect.

Who doesn’t love the simple and classic game of keeping a balloon afloat for as long as possible? There’s a dedicated balloon zone here where an abundance of regular as well as XXL balloons can be found. Kids can bop them around, toss them in the air, and cheer with glee as the airy orbs bounce from place to place.

A foam carousel with cute little motorcycles allows your kid to go round and round without having to put in coin tokens. Mummy and Daddy, feel free to hop on for the ride. If your child is nimble enough, they can even climb into the centre for more merry-go-round merriment.

For the ultimate test of your child’s reflexes, bring them over to the Bouncing Minesweeper. The arena has bouncing pads, and the goal is to leap and dodge the rotating bar that’s reminiscent of the one in Mario Kart’s Tick-Tock Clock race track.

Obstacle Courses and Rope Courses

The well-decked out Obstacle Course will sharpen your little one’s dexterity, strength, and navigation skills. As a nifty bonus, it’ll also do the job in depleting their battery if they’re particularly hyper, paving the way for a great night’s sleep later on.

There are foam hammocks where your ball of energy can lounge around in style when he or she needs to catch a breather. Although it looks like a relaxing affair, the slender design also works their balancing skills and core strength.
