Among all the learning toys we have acquired for G through the years, his most favourite were the ones that let him build all sorts of things on his own. Ever-since I noticed that he enjoys "building", I invested on wooden blocks, Lego sets and other toys that he can build, "demolish" and rebuild. If you are a parent like me, you should know how impressive kids' imagination is. They can create a plethora of things you wouldn't possibly thought of creating even in your dreams!
When I learned about Kaboodle Kids, I knew I had to bring G there sooner or later. Remember our visit at Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park almost 3 years ago? G enjoyed Bob the Builder the most at The Little Big Club. His love for building things is very evident ever since he turned into a toddler. Even when we last visited Port of Lost Wonder, we had a hard time convincing him to call it a day because he is having fun building with the big blue block sets.
Kaboodle Kids have the same big blue block sets but it's 6 times more of the set they have at Port of Lost Wonder! G's eyes instantaneously widened and sparkled the moment we stepped in Kaboodle Kids premises. He spent more than 2 hours building forts, robots, tunnels, ball slides, and many other things with K and his new friends and asked for another couple of minutes extension when I declared it's time to leave. It has been a week since we visited and he has been begging me to bring him back there! That speaks volumes on how he tremendously enjoyed his time at Kaboodle Kids!
Here are 10 things your child will benefit from visiting Kaboodle Kids:
1. BASIC COLLABORATION SKILLS
Kaboodle Kids crew and his big sister K to create his dream ball slide. At home, G have a mini-ball slide toy which he could assemble and re-assemble depending on where he wishes the tiny balls to fall. Kaboodle Kids' big blue blocks came with chutes, arch chutes, channel bends, and channel straights that can be used to build a giant version of the ball slide. He had great fun collaborating and building!
2. UNLIMITED CREATIVITY
3. ENHANCED COMMUNICATION SKILLS
4. IMPROVED SOCIAL SKILLS
Kaboodle Kids, your child is encouraged to get along well with other children so they could play harmoniously and/or create things together.
5. GREAT BONDING/RELAXATION TIME
Kaboodle Kids, I discovered that my children have a secret hand-shake which they demonstrated during their bonding time inside their blockhouse. K and G's age gap is considered quite big so I always make an effort to "glue" them together for a much-needed sibling bonding time. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see snippets of what they do during their bonding time which includes but not limited to nature therapy, reading time and lots of play time. These pockets of bonding time enable them to feel relaxed, hence the occurrence of a grouchy little brother and pissed-off big sister are greatly decreased.
6. FREEDOM OF SELF-EXPRESSION
7. GOOD PLANNING, BRAINSTORMING AND PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS
Kaboodle Kids' big blue blocks came with holes that kids can use to connect one block to another and create something interesting. It enables the kids to plan which block is supposed to be connected to another block to come up with a solid foundation, just like how real-life engineers plan before building and solve structural problems along the way.
8. FOCUS AND DETERMINATION
A.W.E.S.O.M.E! No other words needed.
10. SHARPENED FINE AND GROSS MOTOR SKILLS
