The boy is a Dino fan. He knows a number of dinosaurs by name and his birthday theme last year was on Dinosaur. However, this lazy Mummy did not take his interest further by borrowing books on Dinosaur for him. As such his knowledge of Dinosaurs are limited. So when I receive an email from Plaza Sing inviting the kids to the media preview of Dinosaurize Me!, I was really happy. I asked the boy and we skipped school just to attend this preview.
Dinosaurize Me! is brought to you jointly by PS and Science Center. So you will expect not just Dino bones display but educational shows and workshops.
Do you know how the paleontologist know how old the dinosaur is when it died? How about how did they find out if the breed of dinosaurs are herbivores or carnivorous? Well, you can find out the answer through the stage show. It was indeed quite educational. This not well read mummy certainly learned a lot that day.
Apart from the show, there are 3 workshop stations and a sand pit. We manage to squeeze in time for two of the workshops and of course the sand pit.
It was a fun day for us, and an achievement unlock for me. As it’s the first time I brought them out all by myself and taking public transport. I’m happy that they have finally reach a stage that is easier for me to manage.
*Disclaimer: We were invited to this media preview. No monatary compensation was received. All opinions are our own.
Zai has been a fan of CBeeBies since he was able to express his preference for TV shows. Somehow he is more likely to choose this channel over the rest. His favorite shows from them include “The Night Garden”, “Charlie and Lola”, “Mister Maker” and “Teletubbies”. He watches them now (at the age of 4.5 y.o). He has since influence Loi to watch “The Night Garden” with him (on nights that they get their TV time) over other channels. I think he finds the characters and their behavior funny in the show.
So he was quite happy and excited when I told him that I will bring him to see Teletubbies live on stage. I had to use it to bribe him to behave himself the days leading to the show.
We arrived early that day and while seated at the Main Atrium, the boy kept asking me when the show is starting and who else is coming. I told him we will see Mister Maker in the TV and there will be Super Numtum. Since we are not familiar with Super Numtum, he also asked me more about them. Lucky I got some handouts to engage him while we waited for the show to start.
The Countdown Show
Maybe it’s the first time that we attended such shows at the mall, I was quite impress that they actually have a main theme linking all the characters together. As the show name suggest, the main theme was counting. So along with the host, we sing and dance through the 20 minutes show.
Finally, the group that excites the kids most.
The show is absolutely free. However, if you want to get up and personal with the Teletubbies or Super Numtum, you just need to spend SGD30 at Plaza Sing to redeem a photo pass to take a photo with them.
