Poolzies Pool Shoes + GIVEAWAY!

Water playgrounds have become commonplace in hot and sunny Singapore, and they are great for keeping the little ones cool and occupied. When I run out of ideas of how to occupy J, we will either bring him downstairs to the pool or to a nearby water play ground.

What bothers me about public water playgrounds is the hygiene. Those little feet step all over the rubberized ground. We don't know how often it is sanitized and is likely a breeding ground for germs. It is also often a hazard for kiddos to run around barefooted as they might step on something sharp or in some cases slip and fall. The risk of the latter is even higher at swimming pools as the tiles are usually quite slippery.


The idea of Poolzies was conceived by an expat couple, Steve and Pia who were equally or even more concerned about the above mentioned issues. While they found a pair of pool shoes which solved their problem, they realized that similar products cannot be found in Singapore. Hence the birth of Poolzies on this little island country.

With a non-slip and abrasion resistant sole, Poolzies prevents falls and protects tiny feet from hot surfaces. Made of stretchable material, Poolzies not only protect, but are extremely comfortable too! It is pretty evident from the pictures below that J enjoyed his pair of Poolzies very much.

J picked the "Reflective Speed" design in size 24 to 36 mths.
Poolzies come in 10 different designs, so you will be able to find something that your little one will like. 
Fits snugly on J's feet. 
J love to run from one pool to another at our condo.
With Poolzies, we were less worried of him slipping and falling on the ground. 
The one surface which the Poolzies did not really work on was the super smooth tiles at our condo's wading pool.  With the Poolzies, J had to walk really slowly to prevent slipping. This is probably because the water plus the tiles made it hard for tiny feet to grip. However, other than this one occurrence, J insists on having his Poolzies on when we are at water playgrounds. 

A very good kiddy product I must say although it probably needs more introduction to pool or playground management in Singapore where it is mandatory for kids to remove footwear to be able to enter. These pool shoes are sometimes regarded as footwear. While we did not encounter any entry refusal, I know a few mummies have. Hence, hope Steve & Pia will work on getting the necessary approvals for use of Poolzies at major water play areas!

Yilan for kids - Taiwan Travelogue

Our recent trip to Taiwan brought us to Yilan. Although we initially worried that it will be boring for the boy as it is more of a "back to nature" part of Taiwan, we enjoyed ourselves very much, and wished we spent more time there. Surprisingly, Yilan packs more fun for the kid than expected.



Here's some places you can check out if you are going down that way and I will let the pictures do the talking! 

My thoughts on the Glenn Doman Learning Method

When I was invited to attend a baby learning seminar about the Glenn Doman Learning Method , I wasn't prepared to feel what I did after that.

There were fleeting thoughts in that 3 hours for me to leave my job to be at home with J.

I also had my heart swell with pride despite not having been the most conscientious mum in helping my son to learn. Yet the time he spent in school has helped him reach all his developmental and learning milestones.  

Fun for kids in the West of Singapore- Part 1

My family moved to the western part of Singapore when I was 3 years old. For as long as I can remember , I have lived here, and will likely continue to for an even longer time.


At different points, people have asked me what's there to do here in the west as it seems so far away. The common comments I hear from friends while in school were "you live in tuas ah....the industrial area? " Or... "which kampong is that?".
