TOTT, or ‘Tools of the Trade’, is Singapore’s (and Asia’s) largest shop specialising in culinary related products, services and activities.

Kidz Amaze, Toa Payoh
No, SAFRA is not just for army boys. SAFRA Jurong has an interactive three-storey play system that features one of the highest indoor spiral slides in Asia and – wait for it – mounted turrets that shoot foam balls ($396/20 children; $16.50-$36/additional child). If the birthday boy or girl prefers to crawl through tunnels, explore themed zones and solve puzzles, then SAFRA Toa Payoh has it all. Here, kids can learn something about the world we live in, so it’s both fun and educational (same price as SAFRA Jurong). And no worries if the birthday kid is just two months old. SAFRA Toa Payoh even has an Infant & Toddler Play Zone designed by early childhood experts for your tots to roll around in total safety.
