For parents with children who are still children (i.e. 12 and below) and are looking to
throw them somewhere give them some learning opportunities while letting them have fun (called edutainment), you’re going to want to take notes.
Coming to Marina Square in about a month’s time is Kiztopia, Singapore’s latest innovative edutainment park.
What’s Special about Kiztopia?
To open on 15 June 2019, it’s the first edutainment park in Singapore themed around its very own Intellectual Property (IP) registered characters and they come with different personalities and occupational profiles to cater to kids with a range of interests.
(That’s Dr Chen, Mark the monkey, Chichi the chick, Tiger, Raby the rabbit, Bell the bear, Pepe the pig, Tina the turtle, Pio the penguin, Honey the bee, and Eli the elephant.)
It’s also the biggest edutainment playground situated inside a shopping mall.
What to Expect
With the motto “Play to Learn, Learn through Play” (if you notice, its actually the same thing paraphrased twice), the playground is divided into 18 different play areas, each meant to cultivate a certain social, emotional or motor skill.
Play areas include “an indoor driving school, role play rooms, Augmented Reality (AR) studios with arts and sports content, function rooms, and even its own themed café,” which serves healthy and nutritious food.

Parents can also bond with their child through these activities since each admission pass accounts for the entry of one child and one adult.
On top of all that, you can sign your children up for “Learn-through-Play” programs, proper classes curated by professional trainers. The programs promise a holistic learning environment while promoting “multiple intelligences and learning domains”.
Starting from August this year, classes like rhythmic gymnastics classes, speech and drama, science and robotics are available, and that’s just the tip of the ice berg.
Entry to such a grand park doesn’t come free.
For blocks of 1 hour, 3 hours and unlimited, a ticket for a single entrance ranges from $28 to $48, depending on the duration.
A bundle deal of 15 admission passes is priced from $268 to $538, again depending on the duration with each visit, potentially saving you $152 to $182.
You can also buy an annual pass at $428 or $588, depending on whether you’re limiting yourself to weekdays only (public holidays not included either).
Once again, the official opening date is 15 June 2019, Saturday.
