Happy Castle Cassia Seeds Playground at Westgate Shopping Mall

Here's the Scoop

Happy Castle Cassia Seeds Playground

At the Happy Castle cassia seeds playground at Westgate shopping mall, kids scoop away intently while parents stand around waiting patiently, eyeing their charges.

Even though small in size (this indoor play area occupies an area the size of two food stalls), the Happy Castle play area is more than enough to keep kids happily occupied, scooping and shovelling away.

Happy Castle at Westgate Shopping Mall, SingaporeOpened in late 2016, the play area at Happy Castle on Westgate level four is similar to a sand pit except that, instead of sand, it is filled ankle-deep with dark brown cassia seeds.

Cassia Seeds

Cassia seeds are the dried mature seeds of the Cassia obtusifolia L, a plant from the Leguminosae family. It is commonly used in Chinese medicine to treat eye infections and help with weight loss. Pillows filled with cassia seeds are supposed to help improve the quality of sleep too.

Cassia Seeds in Children's Play AreaApparently, another use for cassia seeds is as a filler for kiddy playgrounds.
