One more week to the September school holidays, but there are already lots to do this weekend!
Let's take a look at what families can expect this week and how to fill it up with so much fun! Here's our pick for this week, 23 - 29 Aug 2021!
Jumptopia Opens This Weekend
Venue: D'Marquee @ Downtown East
Date: 28 Aug - 10 Oct 2021 (10 am - 10 pm)

Spanning 12,000 square feet, Jumptopia is an air-conditioned play tent with six giant bouncy castles, with an average size of nine to 12 meters in length and a height of five to six meters. The highlight is the Alien Snail bouncy castle, which stands at a massive size of 22 meters wide by eight meters high!
Recommended for kids aged two years old and above, the younger ones can also jump in the less adventurous castles or take part in the mini station games and hands-on activities too!
*We will be visiting on the first day of Jumptopia, so head over to our Facebook, like us and watch out for our LIVE (approx. between 10 - 11 am on 28 Aug 2021) to share what to expect!

It won't be a 5-star hotel experience, but if you are looking to "rough it out" with the kids and experience something different, you may want to give this a try! Read more about this Glamping Experience!
Visit A "Neighbourhood" Indoor Playground
If you are familiar with BYKidO, you will know that we started with a focus on play events and venues, in particular indoor playgrounds. With the ongoing pandemic, many indoor playgrounds have been suffering due to the cap on capacity, intermittent closures (Play! by Kinderplay has been closed for over 3 months!), and slow weekday traffic.
We like to take this opportunity to introduce some of the smaller, neighbourhood playgrounds that needs our support - where we have visited, the links are included. Otherwise, it is linked to the playground's website or social media.
If you are available, do take the time to check them out, especially on weekdays. For weekend visits, please check their booking requirements as there is a limit on capacity (some are in the low 10s, and that includes both parents and kids). This is not a complete list, and you may have other playgrounds that you like to share - you may do so via our community forum (and stand a chance to win $20 too)!
- Kidodo Playground @ City Square Mall
- Play by Kinderplay @ Changi Airport T3 (they are not open yet, but hopefully soon).
- Merry Haus @ Oasis Terrace, tickets are available on bykido.com
- Rocking Horse Playhouse @ Horse City
- PlayLand @ Jurong Point, tickets are available on bykido.com
- TotsPlay @ Downtown East, tickets are available on bykido.com
