Pretend-play Indoor Playgrounds in Singapore

Sharing is caring!

Role-playing teaches kids how the world works. Pretend play expands the imagination. And when kids take on roles and play together, they get to learn social behaviour, too. More indoor playgrounds are offering pretend-play zones, recognising the educational benefits of simple play and real-life immersion.

Some of these indoor playgrounds also offer active play areas, alongside their role-play zones. And others are full-fledged mini-worlds or mini-cities. So you have many choices for your child, depending on the themes you like!
