{Indoor playground review} NEW Polliwogs at Eastpoint Mall.

    Hubby and I love living in the Eastern part of Singapore, reasons being - the food, the late nights, the proximity to Changi Airport and East Coast park, and as if we need another reason to love being Easties, it has to be the addition of a spanking new indoor playground a stone's throw away from our home!

    With the crazily hot weather these days, it is hard to leave the house, not to mention do any outdoor activities with the kids.
    Luckily, Polliwogs opened a new Outer-Space themed outlet near us, just at Eastpoint Mall opposite Simei MRT!

    Polliwogs Eastpoint opened its doors to public on 11 April, and for the month of April, there will be 10% discount for entrance fees and 20% discount for cafe purchases.

    Thank goodness someone came up with this cafe idea. I really liked the cafe in Cool De Sac (Suntec City), and my kids used to frequent Explorer Kids at Downtown East and there weren't any cafes for parents and caregivers to sit down, relax, and enjoy a cuppa (they recently closed and re-opened from renovation but we haven't gone back yet).

    With the new Polliwogs, I can have the best of both worlds in terms of traveling distance and parents' needs!

    The prices at Polliwogs are also not as expensive as the food at Cool De Sac, where the latter's prices shown are before GST!

    Food & price list (not exhaustive):
    Bottled water $1.80
    Milo packet $2
    Ribena packet $2

    Beef pie $7.80

    The only downside of Polliwogs at Eastpoint is that there is no toilet attached, so patrons have to exit the playground to the nearest toilet located on left-hand side of the playground.
