A bit of playground fun

Blast from the past: this was me in a typical Singapore 80s playground! It looks so boring to my kids but I spent many a happy hour with my friends there. I like how many of the playgrounds here are still sand-based so you can safely launch yourself off a swing!

So the playgrounds here have definitely been upgraded since I left. I’ve yet to find the rubber-tyre swings, wooden see-saws or tiled concrete slides that I was reminiscing about. But here are a couple of other things the kids have been enjoying so far…

Guess what this is?

Never seen this bit of playground kit before. Finally – something for those kids who always fancied going for a spin in the washing machine.

We also love these fun flying foxes!

There are loads of great playgrounds in Singapore and one of the benefits of having two preschoolers is that I can join in without looking too ridiculous (I hope).

    • Hi Gordon! Sorry just saw this…it ended up in spam for some reason! Glad you’re enjoying the read…it’s been a nice way to keep in touch. It was so hard to come up with a blog name…ended up plagiarizing from a picture book!

  3. It always terrified me when you launched yourself off a swing. That washing machine thing is crazy!
