We went to the recent Kids World Fair at Suntec Convention Centre and it was one of the better kids and baby fairs we’ve ever been to. If you missed it, read on to see highlights of what you’ve missed and why you must go next year. It was held from 10 to 12 Aug, and while I only planned to go on Saturday, I ended up going on both Saturday and Sunday! It was that much fun!
1. A One Stop Shop For Baby and Kids
The ginormous fair was divided into 2 sections, one for kids and one for babies, with retailers catering to each segment conveniently located near to each other.
On the kids side of things where I spent most of my time, you’d discover products, services and activities that caters to education, health and fun aspects of childhood. It was mega fun. I love how they catered to a wider age spectrum because my younger one is still only 2 and it was so easy for us to just pop by the baby side to grab some snacks at a good deal.
2. Latest New Products & Services
I walked away from this fair actually being a whole lot more knowledgeable. I got introduced to quite a few new products and services that were very interesting. This is THE fair for parents to go to for the latest in the market! For example, these were the new products and services I didn’t know about till this fair!

3. Trial Classes & Kids Workshops
I was super excited when I knew about this. The list of classes and workshops had a good variety and I couldn’t decide which to prioritize. The below few caught my eye and fit our schedule so we went for it!
- Taekwondo for kids by @jhkimsingapore
- Aikido for kids by @kidou_academy
- Art Jamming for kids by @muzartsingapore
- Music and movement classes for kids by @kindermusikwithlove
There were so many more. If you have always wondered about any enrichment class or activity for kids, this is the fair to experience it all in a single stop!
4. Experiential Booths & Family Fun
Unlike any other baby fair before, the Kids World Fair has heaps of activities to keep parents and kids occupied. I decided to go on both Saturday AND Sunday because there were just so many fun things to do. Besides all the trial classes and workshops that children could sign up for, many booths had experiential areas for the kids to play in.
There were heaps of bouncy castles, and experiential booths like Kidzania which brought their Maybank banking jobs along with them for kids to play for free. Vitagen had a whole maze game going on to teach kids about our digestive system and they could win prizes. Loacker had a mini carnival-like game for kids to play and win loacker snacks. We just had to stop at almost every booth! HL Milk had a life-sized snakes and ladders board game for kids!

- @youngnautilus had a little show and tell area about animals we’d see when we join them on their nature walks
- Rock Climbing for kids by @climberslaboratary
- Loacker’s Carnival Game
- Robotic Rides by J’Kids Amusement
There were also character meet & greets and stage shows to check out.
On top of all that, there were 20+ carnival games and amusement rides like Robotic Rides, Trains, Flying Carpets, and Diggersite. My kids could not decide which they wanted to go on first! They only thing they knew was they wanted to play it all. Haha!
5. Well Organised
The fair is very well organised. It took up an entire floor at the Suntec Convention Centre, the floor space is huge, making it a very comfortable fair to walk with kids and strollers. The pathways were spacious and even through there were over 180,000 people who visited the event in total over 3 days, we did not feel cramped at all. This is really important because there were many such fairs previously where we decided not to go because we thought it’ll be too cramped and uncomfortable especially if we have kids in tow.
