Is Your Baby Ready to Crawl into the Singapore Book of Records?

Sharing is caring!

Does your child have what it takes to enter into the Singapore Book of Records?

Find out at the Baby Crawling Contest 2013 taking place at SAFRA Toa Payoh on 1 December 2013.

Baby Crawling Contest 2013

This is the second year that the Baby Crawling Contest has been jointly organised by SAFRA Toa Payoh and Gymnademics, an early childhood enrichment centre in Singapore.

In last year’s race, 13 month old Stanley Sim was crowned Singapore’s fastest crawling baby, taking a mere eight seconds to crawl a distance of 2.4 metres. He took the top honours ahead of 33 other babies.


In this year’s race, babies will have to cover a similar marked track laid out at the SAFRA Toa Payoh Atrium. Babies will compete in batches of four with each contestant having one try at covering the distance as quickly as possible. Parents can lend their support by encouraging and cheering on their babies from the sidelines.

The Baby Crawling Contest 2013 is divided into two categories, 5 to 8 months and 8 to 12 months. The race takes place between 9.00 am to 12.00 pm on Sunday, 1 December and is being held as part of SAFRA Toa Payoh’s Fun, Learn & Play This Christmas weekend.

Presiding over the Baby Crawling Contest 2013 will be officials from the Singapore Book of Records who will crown the fastest baby in Singapore!

Toddler Race 2013

Children older than 12 months can also get in on the action.

This year, a Toddler Race for children between one to three years old will be held. This race will test the toddlers’ dexterity as they not only have to cover a set distance but also pick up balls and place them in baskets at one end of the track.
