I’m a member of Royce
Royce Kids Gym has a very high ratio of expat kids, ranging from babies to older children. Hunter is one of the little ones, but he really enjoys himself there. He’s been there around 5 times now, and so is quite used to the place and will toddle around looking for the specific toy/equipment that he’s keen on. I do think that being there has helped with his walking skills when he started walking unsupported in the past 2 months, because he keenly watches the older kids there to see how they move, and how they play.
The gym also has really lovely staff, and they make the effort to tidy up the toys ALL the time. They literally are constantly walking around arranging stuff! Everything there is tidy and most importantly, clean. It makes for a great place for kids to have fun, and also to tire themselves out so they take a great nap afterwards and we mummies can then relax 😉
Any play gyms that you take your kids to, that you reckon are awesome as well?
We also stayed at the Marina Mandarin Hotel the other week, because of Chris’ work and conferences. Hunter seriously enjoyed the big, soft bed and the fluffy pillows. Love seeing his satisfied grin when he *plonks* himself down on the bed!
Wow, looks like I should bring my son there one day! We’ve been to the Polliwogs but the toddler area does not seem to be as big as this!
Love your reviews on kids activities like the Animal resort btw 🙂 we made a trip there last weekend…
You def should try it out esp if you’re in the area.. it’s pretty impressive 🙂
And hope you enjoyed your time at the Animal Resort!
Yup, we did 🙂
They must have changed their staff or improve on their service because I was there a couple of times in 2010 and didn’t like it at all. Their staff was very impersonal, in fact, they gave me and my friends the impression that they hated kids! And I certainly didn’t see anyone walking around and tidying the place up at all times. Overall, I find the gym a little too small for my liking. Perhaps it suit younger kids more. My son was 3 when we went there and he found the place rather boring.
Yikes.. that IS pretty bad! Maybe they’ve changed management or shaped up since, cos they were really good every time I’ve been (whew)
We love Royce gym too!
I bet your two boys would have a ball there! Andn I think $15/hr is pretty reasonable..
I have to agree, Royce Kids gym is da bomb and da best!
Oo have you been? Let me know next time you go, we can go too 🙂
Yes we’ve been there. 🙂 Tabby loves it there!! but we are not members and we…*ahem* find it a bit ex esp with two kids. LoL
