My Little Climbing Room Review

During the December holidays, we went to check out My Little Climbing Room, a safe haven for rock climbing for children, especially for beginners. We were invited to the rock-climbing facility prior to it opening its doors to the public but we only managed to make a trip down in December.

My Little Climbing RoomIf your child is new to rock climbing, this is a good place to start. We had previously scaled the wall at The Cliff at Jurong East, and back then my little one didn’t dare to. Can’t blame him since the wall at The Cliff is much higher and also not built with little ones in mind.

At My Little Cimbing Room, it offers a shorter wall and closer holds since it’s specially designed to cater for children’s height and reach. This means children can safely build self-confidence in the sport. Anyway, after the tedious packing and unpacking, and the massive cleaning of our big move, we were all glad to finally bring the kids out for a fun time to expend their boundless energy.

My Little Climbing Room features a 4m tall wall:

I like that it’s not too tall for the younger kids and it really is less daunting.

There are also 3 levels of difficulties for each coloured wall which adds to the fun and challenge.

When you complete all the challenges, you’ll even get a reward!:

The level 3 tasks were really challenging, even for my girl who’ll be turning 10 this year. And she’s pretty strong for someone of her petite stature. Needless to say, it was a real struggle trying to complete level 3 tasks for my boy! But he was motivated enough to keep trying and eventually did it in the 1.5hour session.

Apart from the 4m-tall wall, there are three more walls which are really quite fascinating!

There’s (1) the obstacle wall:

The obstacle wall is easy for older kids but might be a bit of a challenge for the younger ones.

(2) augmented reality wall

The kids enjoyed this wall out of the three because of the race to tap all the ‘dots’ on the wall in the fastest timing, so you can keep working on your personal best timing.

(3) number wall

My Little Climbing Room

First, generate a number randomly:

Then climb and touch the number:

I thought some of the numbers could be placed higher so that there would be more of a challenge.

Apart from rock climbing, there’s also a hangout zone where kids can climb the ladder, traverse the monkey bar, scale the rope or swing on the wrecking ball. A maximum of 2 kids is allowed at any one time at the hangout zone for safety.

There’s also a Wheelie Zone:

There are a couple of these wheelies and balance toys lying around and the balance toys are not easy!

During the 1.5 hour slot, it’s 30 mins free play, followed by 30 mins of group games, and lastly 30 mins free play.

Group games!

Back to climbing!:

One important thing to take note of is that the recommended adult-child ratio is 1:1, for family bonding but more crucially to ensure safety. Grippy socks are a must for the kids. If you don’t have socks, you can purchase them there before your session.

At the end of the session, you get to bring back a free photo!:

Customizable ErgoSpine Ergonomic Office Chair Review

It’s the beginning of a brand new year! This is a milestone year for our family because the little one enters primary school. #nomorepreschoolersathome *sniff*

Last year was super eventful because we ended up selling our house and buying a new one within six weeks and eventually concluded the year in our new home. And even though there were some hiccups in the renovation works and major delay of some pieces of furniture due to the spat between Taobao and ezbuy, we finally got our place together by the end of the year. Hurray!

Due to the delay of our dining chairs from Taobao, these customizable ErgoSpine ergonomic office chairs we picked out from Primero filled in the gap for more than two weeks. It was a little weird eating at our industrial dining table with ergonomic office chairs but hey, the chairs are really awesome and comfortable.

ErgoSpine Ergonomic Office Chair

The chairs above are exactly the same but the headrest is in a different position. The headrest is adjustable and can be used as an extra back support when needed. Kinda cool, huh? I personally prefer the extra back support when I’m sitting at the desk since I don’t usually utilise the head rest.

Swing it up and push to lock it in place for the headrest

The height of the arm rest is adjustable as well:

Unlike normal swivel chairs, this ErgoSpine ergonomic office chair has two levers – one to control the height and the other for the back rest:

The photo above shows the maximum angle of the back rest. What I find really cool is that it can be locked in place and you can actually take a comfortable power nap on it if need be! If you can get your own office chair, I highly recommend this as an option as it has dual cushions which support your back firmly without exerting pressure on the spine. This helps to distribute the pressure to the left and right back muscles effectively, so you won’t get low back pain and fatigue due to pressure exerted by general chairs.

You can customize the Ergospine ergonomic office chair – choose from a range of colours and also material (mesh / PU leather), and you can also choose if you want adjustable arm rests.

Currently at the point of writing this post, the earliest delivery is SAME DAY delivery. For us who’ve waited for more than a month for furniture to arrive, that sounds just perfect. Start off the new year with less back ache, what say you? 😀
