Singapore Shopping: Toys and Toy Shops?

by Laura
(Southern California)

Where are the good places for toys or toyshops in Singapore?

We'll be visiting next week with our 8 & 10 y/o boys who are fiends for all the usual Japanese-style stuff here in the US (Pokemon, Bakugon, etc.), and it would be a kick to have them spend their Christmas money in Singapore.

I've heard about one big store, OG, but are there other kinds of places, street shopping districts, whatever, that are good for toys?

BIg thanks, Laura

Toys Galore in Singapore!
by: Gabriel Tan

Hi Laura

here are a few suggestions:

(My top recommendation is at the bottom!)


Around City Hall MRT Station (Singapore's subway)


1. First you have the usual suspects, Toys R Us. One of their biggest stores is at:

Suntec City Shopping Centre, Unit 03-005

(Another Toys R Us store worth checking out is at Vivo City Shopping Centre, Unit 02-183. Nearest MRT Station: Harbourfront.)


2. And while you are at Suntec City, check out also the Toys Section of Carrefour.

Carrefour also provides a free shuttle bus from the City Hall MRT Station, though you can actually walk through the One Link underground shopping street to get to Suntec City.


3. Then you have a good local chain called Kiddy Palace.

A convenient branch is located at Marina Square Shopping Centre, Unit 03-160/164. This shopping centre is also a short walk from the City Hall MRT Station.


Near Bugis MRT Station


4. You'll obviously need to visit Bugis Junction Shopping Centre.

Check out:

a. BHG, Level 3 (Toy Section)

b. Action City (Unit 03-23)
(a store which stocks a wide range of unusual toys)

c. Absolute Comics (Unit 03-13)

Note: Bugis Junction is also very near OG @ Albert Complex, which is a short walk away along Rochor Road.


5. Toy Shops at Sunshine Plaza - Highly Recommended!

Sunshine Plaza is a little gem of a place if you are looking for toys, especially fix-it-yourself toys.

Japanese anime characters, Marvel action heros, and lots and lots of others - you'll find them here. And if they are in the mood, the youths here may get into their cute-sy cosplay as well.

It's not a very big place. But I believe your kids will get quite excited here! And perhaps you too ;-)

It's a pity I don't have the pictures to show you here. Perhaps, this will be the next stop for my photo shoots.

My request to you: If you go to Sunshine Plaza and like it, could you ask the shops if you could take a photo of them and post it here?


Getting to Sunshine Plaza

From Bugis MRT Station, walk along Victoria Street in the direction of Middle Road. At the junction of Victoria Street-Middle Road, turn onto Middle Road. Sunshine Plaza is at the junction of Middle Road and Princep Street.

Notice that Sunshine Plaza is also close to OG Albert Complex and Bugis Junction (both mentioned above).





Have a great time shopping for toys in Singapore!

Sunshine Plaza Toy Shops
by: Gabriel Tan

Hi Laura and Nils

I don't know whether this comes too late for your trip. But I dropped by Sunshine Plaza today and here's an update on the toy shops there.

There used to be more toy shops at Sunshine Plaza - 8 at one time. A few have moved out. But here are the addresses of 5 toy shops at Sunshine Plaza:

1. Xeno Hobby Workz (Unit 1-33)
- has a wide variety of comics-related toys


(Xeno Hobby Workz @ Sunshine Plaza)

2. Hobby Art (Unit 1-44)
- has a large selection of Ban Dai toys, amongst others

3. Ani Play (Unit 1-46)
- specialises in Japanese anime/cosplay characters.

4. The M Workshop (Unit 01-58)
- specialises in Tamiya fix-it-yourself models.

5. Hello Kitty (Unit 1-77)

Please note that most of them are closed on Monday. Best time to come here: afternoon.

Vintage Toys Shop

Well, it appears everyone has overlooked a shop at Excelsior Shopping Centre in Excelsior Hotel at 5 Coleman Street, Level B1-17.

The shop - ROBO ROBO carries varieties of vintage toys along with various branded collectible toys. You name it, there you can find it! Prices are moderate.

Toy bow and arrows
by: Ken

Hi,

I'm involved in a school's children day carnival.
We will have some game stores.

One of these is the Arrow game, where students will get to shot targets using toy bow and arrows.

I'm looking to buy more arrows. These arrows are the one with the rubber suction tip.

Does anyone know where I can buy these arrows?

Regarding the Pixar fingure. Saw that like 2 weeks ago at China Square Central Level 1. I think the shop name is "Vincent's collection". But he usually sell things more ex than others. So you might want to go other shops there to check it out.

Toy City in Singapore? don't really think so... but China Square Central is close... close to being a toy city... esp on Sunday with the flea market on.

WWE figures
by:

Hello, just though that I can provide some information.
So far, other than Toys R Us, I have only bought WWE figures from 2 sources.

1-Ebay Singapore
Ebay is a great way to find figures. I have found many rare and hard to find figures there. You may want to try these Ebayers too, they sell good condition, rare figures:
a)primordial123
b)iplanteer

2-ToyQuestz
This shop is located at Far East Plaza at Orchard Road. It is at the 5th floor. They have many, many figures there, all directly imported from the US. Also, they constantly bring in new stores, so you may want to check them out. Other than figures, they have many other WWE items too, such as Figure Belts, Toy Belts, Rings, Pendents, even Adult Size Replica Belts.
