Refer to any early childhood piece of information, and they will all roughly tell you the same thing: kids learn best through play. Playing is children’s version of learning, and no, we’re not talking about “Baby Shark”, swiping on the iPad kind of learning. We’re talking about physical activity, hands-on experience, and exploration based on their senses. ☺
For healthy child development, children cannot be couch potatoes. However, due to the crazy weather in Malaysia, as well as for security reasons, we understand that children cannot be let loose outside. And that is why we’ve rounded up 16 indoor playgrounds in KL & Selangor to ensure that your kids will get enough play and learn sessions! 🤩

For example, children can watch their coloured pictures come alive on a screen, or even get it printed out, and fold it into a 3D model! Playing has certainly come a long way from 5 stones or masak-masak, don’t you think? Children enter with an electronic wristband, take a selfie, and select an avatar. It’s kind of like choosing a video game character, but in real life. Oh, and if you have tiny tots, they will not be left out, as they have a Baby Gym specially for toddlers. ❤
