MOSH!, Singapore's Newest (Digital) Indoor Playground + GIVEAWAY!

Media Invite

Launch fireworks using your body, watch your doodles spring into life from a piece of paper or marvel at how your paper plane transforms into an animated jumbo plane on the screen.

Welcome to the new indoor playground of the future.


MOSH! is Singapore's first digital media edutainment facility which showcases state-of-the-art multimedia technology from Japan, and is unlike ANY indoor playground that a child is familiar with. Or at least for my monkies, that is.

When I first told them of this new digital playground on Sentosa, to say they were hugely enthusiastic is a severe understatement. I think the part of having their creations come to life was the clincher... and little wonder that they were struck in awe the moment they stepped into MOSH!


Located on the third floor of the spanking new Palawan Kidz City on Sentosa (opposite Port of Lost Wonder) and sharing the same building as KidZania Singapore, MOSH! is housed in one big room with a total of FIVE digital interactive activities to keep the kids enthralled.


Dedicated to providing a unique play-to-learn experience, the five activities allows the little ones to create imaginary worlds of their own in an immersive virtual environment, designed to empower creativity through free play and expression.

And created freely - and in some instances, wackily - the monkies did in the five different MOSH! Worlds:

FANTASY: WORLD OF WONDER


The first activity that kids encounter when they first enter allows them to work those tiny fingers - by colouring their favourite Mosh!cot. Colouring stuff on its own may be boring to some kids, especially older kids like my boys, but all the talk of boring went out of the window when they realised they were able to scan their finished product and make it appear on the giant screen!


Yes, it is alive and rather bouncy too!


I have to admit, the end result is so cute that the wifey and I could not resist adding some Mosh!cots to the family too!


SPACE: FIREWORK PARTY


Now this is one digital activity to get those bodies (and butts) shaking! Kids stand along the Fireworks play zone and orchestrate Fireworks into the skyline on the projection wall by simply moving, running and jumping around.

And I think Ayd gave a splendid positive demonstration. Lol.


Nothing like a fun activity for the whole family to move and dance without a care in the world!

LAND: HIDE & SEEK


The older kids might find this the most boring of the lot but younger kids will love playing hide-and-seek with the cute creatures. Just place any objects - or your hands- on the Interactive Table and watch the creatures appear under them... and as Ale shows in the video, she loved squishing them too!


SEA: DOODLE AQUARIUM


By far, this is THE activity station where all of us spent most of our time there simply because the doodling possibilities are endless and oh-so-fun!


Featuring a gigantic digital aquarium, kids will be able to doodle anything they want on a piece of paper, scan it and watch it join the underwater world on the screen.


And when I say doodle anything, I really mean anything.


After the scanning is completed, a digital cut-out of the doodle is formed.


And this instantaneously gets sent to the giant aquarium screen.


Nothing like seeing poop floating around under the sea, eh?


But in all seriousness, the prospect of having the monkies' pictures of anything they draw appear miraculously before them is definitely very appealing and therein lies the fun.

It's a good thing too that the screen is able to scan a few copies of artwork at the same time so plenty of kids will be able to see their creations appear simultaneously on the giant digital aquarium!


Along the way, the boys realised they could scan tiny objects such as keys and coins and make them appear on the screen too - ensuing plenty more of laughter all around.

AIR: PAPER PLANE ADVENTURE


Now this comes in as a really close favourite for the boys because they love folding aeroplanes. But what is even MORE incredulous is not only do they fold their own paper planes, the paper planes transform into digital actual planes when they throw them against wall!


Don’t believe me? Just watch.


AMAZING, no? For kids who love aeroplanes, they will go bonkers! What's more, there are mini challenges where kids are tasked to strike certain areas on the screen using their paper planes to earn points.

Helmed by award-winning Japanese creative agency, 1→10, who has won over 150 international awards, and other designers from Japan, MOSH! fuses technology with learning activities that make it so fun for the kids.

Like in the Paper Plan Adventure, the size of the digital version that appears in the screen depends on the quality of the paper plane. So in an educational way, this teaches kids to think about re-engineering their planes for a better result.


All of the 5 activities are positioned next to one another, so kids can hop freely from one activity to another. We spent a total of 2 hours there and even then, the monkies will tell you that it is not enough!


As much as I love the concept, the only bugbear I have about MOSH! is its rather pricey entrance fees at $28 per adult and $22 per child. The activities appeal most to kids so I would prefer that adults pay a cheaper accompanying fee rather than having to fork out a more expensive admission charge.


But make no mistake, the activities in MOSH! are cute, playful and full of endless imagination possibilities. The monkies love it, and I am sure kids will absolutely go wild in MOSH! as well!
