Hello Playful Tots Fans!! Universal Studio Singapore has finally opened, being the first of its kind in Asia! What is it all about? For those who's never heard of it before, it is a theme park brought over from L.A. and Orlando in the U.S, and it's all about movies. What's that in the background? Yes! Your background, you! the reader! I hear children screaming "mommy I want to go!" hehe.. Well if you are planning to go, Playful Tots was there on the opening day and we have exclusive tips, reviews and photos to give you a preview of what is going on.
How's the overall experience at Universal Studio Singapore? We would say that it's very enjoyable, we give it 4 stars out of 5 stars. Your experience might be different because it all depends on the weather. We went there in the morning and uh-oh dark clouds are coming, and sure enough the rain came, but then it stops and then it starts pouring again, and then it stops again. This goes on the whole day! Some rides are not open yet which is the reason for the 4 stars, but this was made up by the short queues to everything from shows, rides and food. Short queues? I thought ticket sales were sold out?? Emm.. no they are not! Despite claiming sold out by RWS (Resort World Singapore), you can actually buy tickets through Asiatravel.com, that's how we got tickets. So if you are planning to go just go to www.asiatravel.com, it's the same price and same deal, without all the headaches of website not working, sold out situation, etc. The crowd is not at full capacity, and I think partly because they need to work out some technical difficulties, which happens from time to time, causing delays on some shows and rides. Understandable since this is the very first time Singapore has a theme park.
Warning: Some rides are stopped when it is raining, so there were some rides that we couldn't catch. But then again, the rain made the boat ride in Jurassic Park jungle so much more interesting. We wore raincoats that are sold in the park for SGD1.50 but we did get a little wet but that's so fun! So don't worry about the rain, there are lots of shelters around, plus it makes the experience unique and interesting. You can get wet anyways during the WATERWORLD show if you sit at the very front, so you can say getting wet is part of the fun experience at Universal Studio Singapore. What is the best attraction at Universal Studio Singapore? I would say check out the Mummy ride, which is one of the only ride not affected by the rain since it is indoors. The ride is so cool that we ride it twice! Of course there's also the twin roller-coaster, however, we gave it a miss because of the on and off again rain (psst plus we are too chicken to ride it hehe). Oh and the park is very kid friendly, there are lots of roller-coasters or rides designed just for kids, so we adults and kids can both enjoy the park. For shows, check out "WATERWORLD", it's based on the Kevin Costner movie a long time ago, I don't know when, but during its time, it is one of the most expensive movies ever made but did not do as well as the Universal Studio version hehe..As you can see lots of shootings, explosions, jet ski stunts, boats...whew..I promise you there's enough action to keep the adrenaline running..The other show to catch is "Monster Rock", where this scientist makes the monster comes to life and sing hip songs like Britney Spears "This is my Perogative". Totally cool!
Tips at the park:
1. The lockers to put your stuff in at the park are one of the coolest I've ever seen! Type in your password, select your favorite colour, and the locker given to you is automatically opened, and locked when you close them. No keys required. Remember this tip though: All lockers rented has a fee! But the locker beside the Mummy ride lets you use it for 30 mins for free! So I suggest that if you need to put your stuff just for a while, use the locker at the mommy ride
2. There are lots of restaurants and food, but we love the roasted chicken and rendang selection at MADAGASCAR. Remember to use your $10 coupon during the soft opening period and pay as little as $3.50 for a delicious meal. Mels-Drive In delicious burgers are also recommended where you can dine in an American 1950-style experience.
3. Buy the $1.50 raincoats for the water ride at Jurassic Park or rain condition! Don't cheap out on these, although you will still get wet, you won't be that wet!! You'll enjoy being semi-wet but not totally drenched by the rain or the rides.
4. Go take pictures with Marilyn Monroe, Kung-fu Panda, Woody Woodpecker and pose!!Picture taken is as great a souvenier than any you buy from the shops.
5. Wear slippers to the park if you do not want to ruin your shoes if it rains. Plus it's so much more comfortable. If you do wear shoes, make sure it's not leather and it's waterproof. So go on bring your kids down to Universal Studios Singapore, it's quite a refreshing experience having Hollywood near your backyard!
We hope you enjoy the pictures and find our review and tips useful for an enjoyable time there. Have fun!

“Gwah gwah” --> Whew! It’s been a while since Playful Tips #2 but Playful Tots is ready to kick start the month of November with Playful Tips #3. Mommies, do you know that guiding your child in choosing their clothing is an important aspect of their development as growing children? So remember to enjoy every moment of selecting their clothes with them while you still can, because one day they will do so on their own when they are older and complain that you are ‘old-fashioned’…hihi just joking Mommy dearest, you will always know what’s best for your child.. ^.^
Comfortable is most important
Every parent has different tastes when selecting clothes for their precious ones, be it boys or girls. However Mommies, remember that children are very active little human beings and they need to wear clothes that are comfortable, so that they will not be irritated by their clothes while enjoying their active lives. So first rule is, choose clothes that are comfortable, soft and light to wear, and those that do not tear easily during wash.
Cotton as the choice material
For your kids’ active lifestyle, they really need clothing that is soft, can absorb sweat easily, cool and do not cause irritation to their skin. The answer is COTTON. Cotton clothes fulfill all the above criteria, and in addition cotton clothes are very comfortable to wear. Alternative good materials to choose from are silk and wool.
If you can, do avoid clothing made from acrylic or polyester for your kids. Clothes made from these materials trap the sweat from your children and also are very tight when worn. Due to these factors, your kids can easily contract skin diseases, and also tight clothing can also affect your children’s normal growth.
Choose according to what they like and their personalities
Mommies should always ask their children’s opinion when shopping with them for their clothes, to know how and what they think of the clothes chosen. Even better, let them have fun choosing clothes on their own and while you guide them with your opinions and inputs. This way you can train them to choose their own appropriate clothing.
There are several ways to choose according to your children’s personality. For example, for boyish girls, mommies should not ignore choosing pants for their clothing. During warm seasons, you can choose t-shirts and short pants for them to wear, while during cold seasons you can choose a sweater and long pants for them to wear. If you dress them that way, they will more free and cheerful during their boyish activities such as going to picnics, to the park.
For kids that have dark skin tones, mommies can select clothes that look more natural and bright. Colourful clothes can lift up their dark skin tones, and make them look more cheerful and full of life.
For kids that have light skin tone, mommies can have more freedom in choosing clothes for them. Colourful clothes such as pink, yellow, or bright red will show their cute and cheerful side, while darker colour clothes will show their suaveness and elegance.
For kids that are large in size, mommies are advised to choose clothes that are slightly darker in colour, for example, dark red, brown or green. With these darker colours hiding their curves, your loved ones will look better and give them more confidence. For kids that are small in size, do choose colours that are warm or light, for example orange, yellow or red. These will give the look of warmness and make them look more toned.
The design and characters on your children’s’ clothes can be differentiated according to their age. For example for kids’ age 2 to 10 years old, can choose clothes that have their favorite cartoon characters or cute animals or wordings, to show the imp in them. On the other hand, for kids’ ages 10 to 16 years can choose clothes according to what they like. Patterns such as flowers, leaves, or box shapes can be used for all ages.
For kids’ age 2 years and below, do remember to put “safety” above all else when buying their clothes. Check the buttons and the pins on the clothes, whether they are firmly sewn on to the clothes. This is important as during these age kids tend to put small objects into their mouth as their food or toy.
Have fun mommies!
Actually, the moment of joy is when we see our cute little loved ones, enjoy choosing their own clothing. This is also a good opportunity for them to express themselves and show their personality, so cuttee…Of coz, mommies you should give a little guidance when training them to come up with their own style, for example, letting them know which combination of colours matches. Enjoy the moments mommies, till the days that they no longer go to you for advice anymore…so saaddd…but keep your smile always okay Mommies? We will always love YOU no matter what!
A word from Playful Tots
Hope you enjoyed Playful Tips #3 from Playful Tots. Just remember mommies, that Playful Tots has selected the best children’s clothing in terms of quality and price. We will always put quality in terms of design and material first, then we will price the clothes so that they will be affordable to most mommies. That is the reason why our clothes are guaranteed to be comfortable and safe for your kids. Playful Tots will continue to pursue its mission to beautify the children with cool clothes, so please continue to support us ok mommies? “Dah dah” -->Thank you.
Above photos: Practice laps day 1 at the Singapore GP
Hi everybody, Playful Tots has a special treat for our fans and friends. We were at the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix night race for all 3 days! As you know Lewis Hamilton won the race, with Vettel coming in Second and Alonso, the previous winner of the Singapore GP, coming in 3rd. We got great seats at the bay grandstand, 3rd row from the front!! But unfortunately, we forgot our cameras, so we have to settle with taking pictures using our camera phone. But nevertheless, we got good pics, so enjoy!!
Those of you who don't know, it's very very very hard to catch these moving cars on camera! Because in a blink of an eye these cars are gone!! Yes that's how fast F1 cars are, not to mention the high decible noise they make when zooming past us. I have to click on my camera 5 secs before they come into the frame of my camera hehe!!
The champion Lewis Hamilton making his drivers' parade lap! He must be thinking hellooo F1 fans I am going to win here!! PT is lucky we got this shot because we arrived just in time to take his picture believe it or not this is the only picture we got from the drivers' parade because they only make 1 lap around the circuit.
Lewis Hamilton clocking a fast lap for his qualifying lap!
Sebastian Vettel at qualifying, I forgot how he did in qualifying but he came in second in the race.
Great view of the Singapore Flyer from our seats! I have to say the view is awesome and you can really feel the tension of the race from the sound of the machines and the crowds.
Start of the race for where we are seated! Sounds of F1 cars zzooming past is like music to our ears!
Lewis Hamilton on race day! Go go go! Would have been awesome if he was to challenge Michael Schumacher at this track, sadly Michael did not make it back to Ferrari.
Victory lap of Lewis Hamilton, sorry this is the best shot I have. My phone camera ran out of battery and this is taken using the Blackberry phone sux!

“Gwah gwah” --> Playful Tots in its 3-month old baby-speak is excited to teach mommies how to wash baby clothes the right way with Playful Tip2 No.2! Babies’ laundries often pose a headache for newborn mommies because every day, the clothes they wear are prone to dirt, milk and urine stains. Oh dear! How do I clean these dirty baby clothes? Playful Tots’ 8 principles in washing baby clothes (0-2 years-old):
1. Do separate baby clothes from your family’s clothes when doing laundry to prevent infectious diseases. At this stage, your baby’s skin is still very much sensitive, and diseases that may not affect adults can be transmitted to your child. So please wash your clothes separately from your babies!
2. Babies’ inner wear and outer wear should also be washed separately. Typically babies’ outer wear gets dirty more easily than their inner wear, plus babies’ inner wear are in direct contact with your babies’ skin. Thus, separating wash for their outer and inner wear can prevent infectious skin diseases. Also, since most of the baby clothes are made by cotton, it can get dirty easily, so it is important that they are maintained clean.
3. Baby clothes should be washed by hand and not machine washed. The germs that are inside your washing machine may be negligible to adults, but it can harm your baby. As your babies’ resistance to germs is still very low, they are more susceptible to skin diseases or other allergies. If you insist on using a washing machine, do buy a small one that is used exclusively for your babies’ clothes.
4. Choose a detergent specially made for babies. When selecting detergents to clean the baby clothes, it's better to use detergents that are specially designed for babies or skin sensitive detergents rather than normal detergents. This can significantly reduce the occurrence of skin allergy in infants. First, soak the clothes with warm water with babies’ detergents for 10-20 minutes and then rinse with water until the clothes are clean. If you don’t have access to babies’ detergent, then do use ordinary soap instead of normal detergent.
5. Stay away from concentrated detergents or bleaching detergents for your babies’ clothes. Many of you moms will be asking: Isn’t it better if we wash our baby clothes with concentrated detergents or bleaching? Actually, concentrated detergents or bleaching detergents makes it harder to rinse your babies’ clothes till they are clean. The most practical way of eliminating the existing bacteria in baby clothes is drying it under the sun.
6. Baby clothes should be rinsed till it’s soap-free. Whichever detergent or soap you use, rinsing your babies’ clothes properly is one of the most important steps in your washing your baby clothes. Your baby clothes should be rinsed with clean water from to 2 to 3 times. If not rinsed properly, your babies’ clothes will still have the traces of detergents and these can cause infant skin allergies.
7. Dry your baby clothes the right way. After your baby clothes are washed and rinsed, they should be dried under the sun, as this will kill those germs that are still on the clothes. Although your baby clothes will be more easily damaged this way, mommies do not worry. Your baby at this stage will outgrow the clothes he or she wears quickly, so your baby will probably be using bigger clothes before his or her clothes get really damaged by the sun. Avoid areas that have less exposure to the sun and places that have no ventilation, as this will cause germs to contaminate in the clothes.
8. Clothes that are stained must be washed immediately. Your baby clothes’ are always in danger of coming into contact with stains from drink, chocolate, milk, tomato juice and others. These stains are not easy to get out, especially if the clothes are kept for 1 to 2 days before washing. Thus, Playful Tots advice moms to clean those stains by washing your babies’ clothes immediately.
So mommies, push yourselves to be a hard-working moms. Hope that you find Playful Tips No.2 useful and remember them when doing your babies’ laundries. “Dah-dah” --> Playful Tots say thank you in its baby-speak.
Hello everyone! If you are here you are probably curious…
Who is Playful Tots ("anak yang suka bermain" in Indonesian)? Who are we? Why are we here? We started as parents who love their daughter very much, and the story and eventually the journey for our store begins.....
.....As parents we love our kids very much and always provide the best for our children. We wanted to dress up our daughter, and buy some nice clothes for her but we were dissapointed with the selection that the Indonesian market carries. It is really hard to find nice clothes! We went to the mall, even the brand name malls in Jakarta, and the clothes are very dissapointing. There are a few kid's clothes that caught our eye, but we have to shut our eyes when we go to the cashier's to pay for them, if you know what I mean!
"Ok fine, we said", if the Indonesian market do not carry the selection that we want, we will bring the clothes in ourselves. You see, our daughter is growing up fast, and there is not many opportunity to photo her at ages 3 month-old, 6 month-old or 1 year-old. Her face and body is changing at such a rapid pace, and we want to capture her wearing nice and cute looking clothes.
WE ONLY CHOOSE THE BEST!
The journey then begins....we begin sourcing for the clothes we want, while we can't disclose much details due to competition, we want you to know the most important thing: WE ONLY CHOOSE THE BEST! This means that we do not care if some of our suppliers are big name companies or small companies, we will only take the best of what they offer, no compromise. This is why we are different, and this is why our store feels different in terms of look and our offerings.
If this is the case why aren't other people doing this you may ask? Surely all other stores pick only the best if they want to sell.....the answer to this is really simple, it is not easy doing this. First our eyes are already trained to pick the right clothes, and what do we mean by that? We are experienced travelers all over the world from the U.S.A to Australia, to Hong Kong, China, Europe so we know what is "nice". Second, we are multi-lingual, so we are able to communicate and negotiate effectively, and search all over the globe for the best kid's clothes at decent prices. Third, unlike some other stores, we are PASSIONATE and we CARE about what we do every single day, and we seek to improve every day, yes that's right! Every day!
OUR VISION AND MISSION
Just like our kids, we will evolve rapidly during our early years, and will continue to evolve but at a slower pace when we become 'adults'. We want to grow, evolve and eventually blossom to become a recognized brand worldwide known for good quality, high fashion kids clothing. That is our vision. Our mission is to make Indonesian kids look super cool and fashionable, pretty and cute with our range of clothing from Playful Tots. We hope to achieve that by only selecting the best quality kids’ fashion clothing at reasonable and affordable prices. Remember, we only CHOOSE THE BEST for your kids!
WHY GO ANYWHERE ELSE? WE HAVE ALL YOUR KIDS’ FASHION NEEDS!
When you shop with us, we want you to experience the whole concept, from our customer service, to our bright 'playful colours', to our selection of kid's clothes which we think are 'eye candies'. Plus! With our prices being reasonable and affordable, you'll find that our prices are either cheaper or equivalent to all malls even when the malls have their so-called 'sales', so please shop with confidence! We hope to cater to all your kids’ fashion needs in one stop because why go anywhere else, and waste time and money searching for nice clothes at other stores? We have selected the best kids’ clothing in terms of design and quality, so that you can be assured that whatever you choose will be talked about by fellow parents.

Look at how it has grown, Playful Tots is now a little bit bigger and more cheerful ;)We have now a wider selection of kids' fashion clothes, plus we now have a more complete product range, with shoes, ribbons, socks, stockings and all kinds of other accesories. Playful, how you have grown! Let's give Playful claps of encouragement so that one day it can find the strength to stand up and walk. "Clap clap".
Besides just looking at the pictures, we have lots of other improvements that can only be felt rather than viewed. So friends and fans in Jakarta, come on down and visit us! For out-of-town friends, don't forget to visit us when you are shopping for your Hari Raya Idul Fitri needs, we want your kids' to look fashionable during that special week! We are located at ITC Mangga Dua 5th Floor (the top floor) Block B No.57D, we are on the hallway just beside Akun Tailor.

"Hwehh gwa?", hi Playful, yes! You are 2-month old..+ 1day, and growing up fast! Hi fans and friends, in a blink of an eye, Playful Tots has reached its 2 month old birthday! We opened on June 1st 2009, and things has progressed really fast. In barely 2 months, we have quite a good response from our shop at ITC Mangga Dua Lantai 5 Blok B 57D Jakarta. Not only that we have over 1000+ fans in facebook already, following us.
Yes fans and friends, plus our dear customers, it's thanks to you that we exist! We hope that your kids will look more fashionable because of us. Keep supporting us because we want to keep bringing to Indonesia the best selection of kid's clothings at reasonable prices. Remember we only select the best in terms of price, quality and design. Those who have shopped with us, thank you for your kind comments, we will do our best and continue to improve.
We've received a few complaints regarding the shopping experience over the web from our customers, and we would like to acknowledge that. We hope that you'll understand that our main business is from our shop presence at ITC Mangga Dua, and we were actually surprised by the huge response from our fans. During the week, we were overwhelmed by e-mails plus we are short-handed as a new business, but please know we tried our best to serve all of you.
Now that we are older, we are growing our team slowly by recruiting the right people for our infant company. Yes, during the growing up period our "Playful Tots" has experienced a stumble here and there like any toddlers. We hope that you'll continue to act as our "parents" and keep showering us with love and support, in return we will keep finding the courage to learn to walk one day.
We want to give thanks to our fans in facebook for their support. We will keep promoting in facebook, although we have stopped advertising for a while due to overwhelming request. Fans in facebook and blog, please be patient, we will have promo events soon ;), u know what that means..
Those who contacted us through the web please stay tuned, we have plans to address your need and we will reveal it when the time is right.
"Gwah gwah" -->Playful Tots is all cute and happy! Things are looking up again! First of all, two thumbs-up to Facebook for getting their website up to speed again. I waited a couple of days just to make sure it isn't just working for 1 day, and they proved that it's up and working now!
Second, for those who don't already know get ready to catch 8-time world champion Michael Schumacher in action once again....it's like Michael Jordan coming out of retirement!!! I can't wait to watch him race against the so-called baby Schumi, Lewis Hamilton who just got back his form with his first win at Budapest, oh babeee...Yes, his comeback is just temporary till Massa gets back, but I think all of us will agree that Massa should take his time to recover ;).
For those living in Asia, I think it is very likely that come this September, we can catch Schumi at the Singapore Grand Prix!!!! After all, his comeback is scheduled in August. Playful Tots has tickets to this event, and we will post pictures of Schumi in Singapore if we are lucky enough to get a glimpse of the great one. Well, we are crossing our fingers and toes that everything goes well, after the great dissapointment of Man U not coming to Jakarta.
To close, guess what? Economy is looking up again, The Dow is strong, the Asian stocks are strong, I believe that we can make a difference to the economy as long as we keep working hard and contribute our talents here on earth to offer people what they want. So keep working hard people!! Hopefully, this post can make a difference, just as the post of our complaint of Facebook, got their website going again, hehe!
Yes Michael in the above picture, we are excited!! Let's get Playful!
I have always been a fan of Facebook but now it's become a little frustrating, it is slow when loading sometimes. Sometimes it's ok, but sometimes it's very slow and I just give up opening the pages. Fans of Playful Tots in Facebook, please know that if your request has been slow in response it's because Facebook is slow at certain times of the day, and I will only open the pages later. Thank you all for your support.
Anyone experiencing what I'm going through, please make your voice known so that hopefully Facebook will catch on to this and fix this problem. Share this story with your friends on your Facebook profile page by clicking the "f share" button below.
"Mamh mah", our 2-month old Playful Tots is uttering its first words! So cute! Hi parents and friends, Playful Tots has decided to launch its blog series called "Playful Tips". Here we will share some tips for parents on how to play or educate our toddlers. Here's our first Playful Tips:
Tip on how to play and educate your 1-2 year old kids:
Preparation: When changing your toddlers' clothes, lay out his or her clothes on the bed, for example, a blue t-shirt and a pink shorts.
How to play: Place your loved one on the bed and direct him or her to the clothes that you want him or her to get to you. For example, say "Playful (ur kid's name), can you get mommy the blue t-shirt?" If your loved one is right, clap your hands in encouragement, and say "Yay that's right, you are so smart!" and re-emphasize that "Yes my dear, that's right! This is a blue t-shirt!" and proceed to put the blue t-shirt on for him/her.
If your loved one get it wrong, do still praise him/her but correct him/her: "Very good my dear, but you know this is a pink shorts not a blue t-shirt!" And then, let him/her find again the right clothing for you.
Game's effect and result: Your 1-2 year olds will be able to differentiate a variety of colours, and heighten their skills in knowing and understanding different objects.
"Gwah Gwah!", what's our Playful Tots so excited about? Ohhh...Hannah Montana clothes has arrived at Playful Tots as promised. And Hannah is going to sing at Playful Tots! Come on down! Haha "gotcha", I was just kidding boys and girls, but what if she did?
