Hsiaowei here. I am the mummy and brain (mummy brain?) behind theplayroom.sg, and I am so happy to announce that theplayroom.sg’s website is finally up and running!! It’s been months of planning and preparation, but we are finally ready to start sharing our wonderful toys with other mummies and daddies 🙂
So what is theplayroom.sg?
Here at theplayroom.sg, we want to bring the days of traditional wooden and paper-based toys back to our present day world. Instead of rushing our children to tap on flat, glass screens all day, we want them to grasp, touch, build with physical objects, so that they can fully develop their motor skills and dexterity.
What’s different about us?
Well, theplayroom.sg was inspired by my own playroom at home for my two daughters. I wanted to find good quality and value-for-money toys for the girls, and found that it wasn’t as easy as I thought. Too often, the toys I purchased were from big corporations and stores, with potentially questionable standards.
I took matters into my own hands. Now, at theplayroom.sg, I personally select and curate the toys that are sold to you. Rest assured that everything on theplayroom.sg meet international standards – feel free to email us for more information!
In addition to my own criteria, they also pass my daughters’ test of enjoyment – you can visit our instagram to see them having fun with our toys 🙂
For now, I am simply seeking to expand our online collection to provide more variety for you. However, we know toys are meant to be tested and played in person, so we hope to establish greater physical presence through fleas and bazaars, perhaps even shop fronts!
As a first-time entrepreneur, I am both excited and afraid for what’s to come – will this fail or will this fly? – but as I’ve always taught my own two girls, it is not your fears that define you, but how you deal with those fears. And so even though I am afraid, I will strive on and face all that comes with enthusiasm and zeal, to show my children they, too, can go on to do what they may be scared of doing.
That’s it for today! Thank you for reading – go take a look at our catalog!
