Revamped eXplorerkid @ Downtown East!

[Media Invite + Giveaway]

Our kiddos are eXplorerkid members since the longest time and we had been to eXplorerkid's flagship outlet at Downtown East many times. But ever since the satellite outlet at AMK Hub opened in 2011, it had proven to be a much more convenient place for our family to visit!

The kiddos got to meet Enzo and Kayla again! 
And of course we were really excited and we got there really early during the media preview. Look at the how the kiddos looked longingly at the play area as we waited and kept asking when we can get into the park!

Looking longingly as we were really early for the day.
Brand new shoe changing area with lockers for your valuables too.
The first area that pique our interest was the Sand Play area. At the back of my mind I was thinking that this was crazy. Imagine how often they need to clean the place up with the rowdy kids. That was until I realized that these were kinetic sand and not normal sand. So yeah, all is well!

Fun with sand but minus the mess! Sand castles and shapes were super easy to mould and looked awesome too!
Leroy had fun moulding the weird feeling kinetic sand.
And they stay in shape pretty well!

The activity rooms were all upgraded and looked pretty cool. You can almost imagine yourself to be in some fairy tale story. Very colourful, and I feel that these would make the perfect venue for any kiddo's party! You should really check out their birthday party promotions here, when everything is still brand new!  

I had a glimpse into the party room, Looked bright and cheery!
We checked out the Toddler Play Area that is dedicated for kiddos below 4 years old. There are ball pits suitable for their heights, play houses, little slides and even kiddy rides. Lots of fun, even for Louie but the older siblings definitely loved role play too!

Stacci loved the kiddo slides because she dare not take the tall one!
The small ball pit that Louie would climb up and down on his own.
Look how fun it was for little Louie!
The playhouses are great for the kiddos to act out their inner job desires!
The girls enjoyed their cooking in the playhouse for sure.
The boys had fun exploring the ship interior and throwing balls at each other!
Climbing around in the tunnels.
One can also take a rest and catch a movie if feeling tired.

The Mega Play is a challenging course meant for kiddos above the age of 4 and features a range of obstacles where one will need to climb or crawl to reach the different levels. Easily the most popular attraction within the park. Closely resembles those hamster cages and adults can follow the kiddos inside too, if your back can still take it!
Big sister Steffi helps keep an eye on little Louie so that I need not have to follow them everywhere!
Getting ready before coming down the tall slide! Although not really suitable for him, but Louie enjoyed the adrenaline rush too! 

There's also a bigger Lit Ball Pool near the toddler's area with colour-changing lights that add a different feel to the ball play. It may be a little deep for toddler's though but most would enjoy "swimming" in the pool.

Steffi taking good care of Louie as he first gets into the pool.
Stacci is enjoying a swell time here though!
And finally we got to try the Adventure Highlands! This play area requires an additional $5.50 per circuit and they have just added a new lower level for kiddos below the height of 110cm. This is perfect for the kiddos to try out and parents can walk alongside them as they build their self confidence. Great for parent-child bonding too, before they get older and progress to the higher level!

Getting dressed up and being given a safety briefing before starting.
He sure enjoys walking through the various obstacle courses!
Hanging on to his dear life!

The kiddos can also try out rock climbing for free at The Cliff! This is of course a very basic wall, not very tall but with the necessary cushion nevertheless. It is great for kiddos 5 years up and for the aspiring spider-kiddos.

Steffi is trying it out, with ease.
While Leroy is hanging for his dear life!
