Bringing Outdoors Indoor (#FrisoExperience)

That thing which light up my children’s eyes: PLAYGROUND/S!

My boys will always jump up like little bunnies when they know that it is “playground time”. Normally, they get an hour or so of outdoor time daily at the playgrounds near our place.

But the current haze problem is Singapore is bad enough to keep them indoors and thus their daily energy-expending activities are confined at home.

Imagine their excitement when they saw this:

The kind folks at Friso had delivered an exclusive Friso playset when I was about to leave for work and while Xi En was not at home too. Though Eizac was really excited to see the slide, he agreed to wait for his brother to be home before we set it up.  I was really surprised by his patience to just leave those alone till Xi En came home.

The Friso playset comprises of:

a tent (more like a tepee),

a slide with a basketball hoop (this is the highlight),

2 Friso cushions,

a storage box and,

a green carpet

And when it is all set up, ta-da! How could any child resist these!:

My boys wasted no time to bounce climb up and down the slide. They probably had gazillion rounds each!

Boys being boys; they decided to take their “vehicles” for a slide and using the storage box as a “garage”. 🙂

After all the spinning down the slides, they took breaks in the tepee and had a mini cook-out session and “selling” their fares to me and their grandmother.

It ain’t cheap, $10 for a cup of lemonade anyone? 😛

The green carpet provides a soft landing ground for the slide as well as a comfortable zone for play dates.

If you have a balcony, a porch, a spare room or a nice rectangle corner at home, the Friso playset will be an ideal play corner for your young children. But fret not if you do not have the luxury of space (like us!). Even after keeping the carpet and tepee (for play dates), the boys insisted on having the slide at a small corner for “daily thrill slides”!

Friso is an advocate of quality family time. Previously, they had a campaign – #Frisomoment – which we participated in as well. Sometimes, good family memories are created by deliberately setting aside time to spend with each other.

Fisher-Price Play Ambassador

About a month ago I saw a fellow mom blogger –  Lynn  – posted an entry on Fisher-Price Play Ambassadors. I was intrigued by the idea of being a ” Play Ambassador”. I meant – How nice is it to be an advocate for “PLAY”! 🙂

Ever since Xi En was born, we were quite sure we don’t need our children to be the smartest in the class; we prefer them to have a childhood and enjoy it while it last!

And so I joined in the Fun and submitted the following 2 photos of Kai En and me playing with some Fisher-Price toys we have at home.

I am seldom in photos with my boys because I am normally the one behind the lenses. But thankfully, I gave my Mum some training on how to help us take some photos. Some quick tips for the grandmothers who have to stand in as photographers:

1) Hold your hand as steady as possible or rest your hands on a support e.g. a table/chair

2) Take as many photos as possible (higher probability of one shot coming out well) 🙂

Sorry I digress. Meant to be a quick post to announce that:

We were chosen as one of the 2 Fisher-Price Play Ambassadors!

Totally thrilled with the appointment! Besides Evespiration, the other blogger chosen is Netty from Madebeautifully. Netty is a pretty young mummy who shares about beauty/make up tips & her motherhood journey with her little boy – EJ.

We were invited by Fisher-Price to share about our playtime with our young ones at the recent Live Well Baby Carnival. But it’s a pity I had to miss it due to a prior work commitment at The F1 event happening over the same weekend. Do pop over to Netty’s blog for some post events updates. 🙂

And so.. dear readers, watch this space for more updates on our explorations as Play Ambassadors with Fisher-Price! Come back again to check on Fisher-Price product reviews, giveaways and more!
