With our little red dot’s unpredictable weather, the many indoor playgrounds in Singapore are very welcomed!

And when it comes to an indoor playground Singapore has many of them!
Here at Little Day Out, we’ve done the hard yards and put together a list of indoor playground Singapore has to offer. Ready to head out for your day out! Start with our list below!
