My Little Climbing Room [WITH GIVEAWAY]

We had the opportunity to visit My Little Climbing Room last week. It was birthed and co-founded by Winson, also the lead instructor over at My Little Climbing Room. The story behind every evolved idea is always inspirational, it was his son who spurred the idea into reality.

My Little Climbing Room

Winson's son showed interest in climbing as a very young age, but most climbing centres in Singapore were built for adults and not kids. Which I've to agree, it's not an easy find. Climbing centres built for adults, not kids means you have to keep an eye on your toddler all the time to prevent him from wandering into danger zones where climbers may fall onto him. Since it's meant for adults, the climbing holds are often out of little kid's reach too. In fact, some places deny entry for young kids because of their tender age. 

I love how My Little Climbing room welcomes my three kids openly, with the youngest being only 2. While I thought they may deny Juboy's desire to climb their walls, I was absolutely wrong! There was a harness of his size and Winson even led and guided him onto his first few steps of climb. He didn't complete the wall of course, he got frightful mid way. Be assured though, it can be done! The youngest this far to complete their wall was a 1 year old plus toddler. Too amazing!


Trying his very best

My Little Cimbling Room is not a very big space. After all, we scale vertically up and not horizontally. It is a small and cosy place for budding little climbers of all ages. Jazz and Jare did enjoy themselves thoroughly, though I thought they may find it too easy compared to Clip n Climb by HomeTeam NS. Children who are seasoned wall climbers may however find Little Climbing room too easy. 

Reach for the bell to conclude success

There are 5 high walls of about 4 metres in the room. Upon entry, a mission card will be given to every child. There are 12 challenges to complete on all the high walls. Redeem a mystery gift upon completing all challenges! It was 'Hello Panda' snack for them. The idea of mission card with incentive is a good motivation for kids to complete their challenges! A great way to train determination and perseverance.



Before visiting the place, I had this wonderful idea of sitting away and watch them climb. Yay, Mummy's time! But I was wrong, I was needed to belay them. With 1:3 ratio, I was thankful that Winson helped when he wasn't engaged with other kids. Juboy was very much contented with the toys and wheelies left around for play. And it was much added fun with superheroes costumes for the little climbers to put on for climb. Imagine that added booster to climb faster with Superman's cape!

Each climb session is 90 minutes. It starts with 30 minutes of free play, then group games, followed by more free play. For weekday unlimited play, group games are run every 2 hours. It is a great place to have safe fun where the instructors are extremely on alert of any potential accidents. They are often swift to rescue. Safety is very much ingrained in them.


Games time!

Another game we played required little climbers to reach for their 'incentive' by climbing and reaching the hold which an eraser was placed on.

It was lots of fun for Js. I love it when they come to me after each failed mission, telling me 'I want to try again.' That's definitely the attitude that determines their altitude! 

And before you leave the place, remember to check out the photo net to collect your free photo. A sweet gesture, isn't it?!
