Sand Play at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park #FrisoMoment

Whenever we get some free time during the weekends or the school holidays, I like to take the kids to the playground! Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is huge and has several playgrounds, both wet and dry, and we visited one of the playgrounds recently.

This particular playground looks really interesting. It’s mainly wood, metal and ropes, very different from the usual plasticky ones we see these days. We were actually on the bus on our way home when we went by the playground and we couldn’t resist getting off the bus to check it out.

It was a really hot day but the kids had so much fun running around, climbing up, sliding down and digging in the sand. The spider web connected to the slide was quite challenging and I climbed up with the kids a couple of times. I love the fact that taking the kids to a playground allows me to behave like a kid too. And I get some much-needed exercise in the process!

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Learning Puppy

David’s latest trick is to do the actions to the song Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes. Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Learning Puppy helps to reinforce this by introducing baby to different parts of the body like the tummy, hand, foot and ear.

There are two interactive play modes: the first introduces ABCs, 123s, colours and parts of the body. The second mode plays favourite songs like Itsy-Bitsy Spider, Pat-A-Cake, This Little Puppy Went to Market and more. You can switch between the modes or turn the toy off completely by pressing the puppy’s left foot.

We have quite a few toys from Fisher-Price but they are not always portable and are best played with while we at home. Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Learning Puppy is soft and cuddly, and easy to bring along with us. The baby likes to hug it while we are travelling around in the car and I think it makes him feel secure.

The cute design, soft fabrics, bright colours and clear letters make the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Learning Puppy a great learning tool for children aged 6 months to 36 months. It is ideal for playing with before bedtime and on-the-go!
