We found ourselves at the Trick Eye Musuem on Sunday. Was initially a little skeptical if the kids would enjoy themselves, given that they are so young and Jah prefers selfies (which is not doable at the trick eye Musuem)
To be honest it was a little stressful for me. Trying to usher a kid to the ‘right spot’ and then trying to get Joel’s attention, to come snap a pic (sometimes to find the moment has passed and the kid especially Jah is no longer willing) sigh… I was sweating buckets and was exhausted.
Bella was a lot more willing to take pic or perhaps she was too little to protest. Oddly some of our photos came out pretty decent/ funny/ twisted..perfect despite the imperfection if you know what I mean 🙂
We didn’t last too long in there as it started to get a little crowded. We lasted for all of one hour and decided to leave. Towards the end of our visit, Jah actually started warming up and ‘understanding’ the concept of some of the pictures (the ones where you get to ‘ride’ or climb).
We allowed him to run around the main hall and redid some photos which was a lot more fun! It would have been a lot more enjoyable if I had let loose from the start and stop control freak mum from trying to get the perfect pic. 🙂 We will definitely do this again! For now, I’m loving our funny NGs 😉
P.S – We realised that while I had prepped Jah prior to our visit, using trick eye photos from the internet. I didn’t exactly tell him that he was allowed to touch anything and everything. Given that we are so used to telling our kids not to touch this or not to do that. I think it confused him a great deal that he was allowed to climb on the ‘displays’ and I was encouraging him to lie on the floor. Therefore it took him awhile to warm up when he realised what everyone including his parents were doing..So a tip for parents – remember to tell your kids that they are allowed to touch/ climb/ sit on anything they wish to 🙂
