Happy willow.

Right off the One North stop on the Circle Line of the SMRT, is a fun indoor play-land call Happy Willow. It's inside the Fusionopolis center, where you'll also find food places, children's learning centers, and a little shopping. Linna loves coming here, especially on rainy days in Singapore.

Happy Willow combines the best of some of the indoor play-lands we've been to in Singapore. It has a great Play Garden where kids can climb, slide, play in colorful balls, swing, and basically burn off some energy. There's also an area for the younger kids, where they can pretend to cook in the kitchen, play with trains, and learn and explore with lots of other toys! In their birthday party area (Book Burrow), there's some arts and crafts, books and a reading area, and a coloring station for the kids too (when there isn't a birthday party in session). They also have a cafe with coffee, snacks, and meals for kiddos.

I love that the adult sitting area is right in the middle of Happy Willow, so you can watch your independent little ones as they explore on their own. I never feel like I am "too far" away from Linna while she's playing with other children, as I can always see where she is. I want to bring some of my mom friends here to "relax" and chat over our morning coffee, while the kiddos burn off some steam! Linna loved sliding into the ball pit, swinging on the hanging ball, and crawling around on this wobbly surface that they have in the corner of the Play Garden. There's all sorts of nooks and crannies for kids of all ages to explore!

The restroom is located outside Happy Willow, but it's not TOO far away (just outside the door and to the left). There's a baby changing station inside Happy Willow, but I wish they had a more convenient restroom area for those parents who have potty-trainers that are still "in training" (they ask that children who are not fully potty-trained wear a diaper). They keep this place pretty clean too, which any parent can appreciate! Every time we visit Happy Willow, Linna requests to make a stop to get a bubble milk tea downstairs, before we get on the train to head back home. We'll definitely be back to Happy Willow again soon! Don't forget to bring socks for your and your little ones. Also, they only accept cash and NETS!

She spends most of her time in here!

Big girl!

Loved climbing up to, then going down the slides!

Such a little adventure gal:)

Role-play with a new pal at Happy Willow.

She was a little apprehensive at first, but then
she was all over EVERYTHING!

Great spot for little ones to learn how to balance.

  1. That's my daughter role-playing with yours :) My friend spotted her while reading your blog (as linked from Happy Willow's Facebook page) and highlighted it to me. What a coincidence!
