I really love toys! That's why the Mint Toy Museum was definitely on the itinerary during our Singapore trip :) The Museum has a wonderful collection of vintage toys! Btw, they have a nice cafe and gift shop too! Don't forget to get a souvenir after :)

We started our tour at the fifth floor which holds the outer space collection. I almost had a heart attack when i saw their robots! They have an original Smoking Man Robot (my fave!) which is valued at US $5,000! WOW! I suddenly remembered my 3-inch miniature Smoking Man robot replica. The original version is huge and measures about 12 inches! I wasn't able to see it that well though since it was on the topmost shelf of the exhibit. Aww. Anyway, here are more bots and other toys that i wish i could take home with me...cute sparky botsthe mighty atom! Astro boy!!!The Adventures of Tin Tin figurines ( i love the comics and the cartoon!!!)retro barbies and kewpie dollsreal matchbox cars!my new bot, giant robot c/o the mint museum gift shop! :)

The Mint Museum is at:
26 Seah Street
Singapore 022768

open from 9.30am to 6:30 pm (museum)
9:30 - 9:30 (shop and cafe)


  1. I didn't know such a place existed! I will definitely visit when I'm in Sing.

  2. yes you should! you'll love it! I plan to get a big bot next time :) (the replicas though and not the US $5000 one)
