Mint Museum of Toys and The Raffles in Singapore

Since the boys are having a long break for half term ( 11 DAYS !!!!), we decided to take the opportunity to visit (again!) Singapore and see something new.....discoveries never end!!!!


Our first visit led us here :


The Mint Museum of Toys is located in a very small building and it develops on 5 floors with displays of vintage toys and related items. Wanna have a look???? Please....

































a prop from the movie "Toys" with Robin Williams....do you remember it?



The toys were amazing, but I was in love with the boxes that were meant to contain them!!!!!

Just in front of the museum, you can find Raffles Singapore, a very famous hotel.....
Usually, we walk by this iconic place, but this time we decided to have a look of the inside...

  1. It all looks fascinating, but honestly, just looking at the tin toys would have kept me occupied for a whole weekend ... those robots ... be still my beating heart. I LOVE this post Ale, thank you.

  9. Ciao Ale!Bella collezione e bella gita, i giocattoli di latta mi piacciono un sacco e che dire dell'hotel dall'atmosfera magica, mi ricorda un film di qualche anno fa, ma non sono sicura sia girato a Singapore, comunque grazie per il viaggio virtuale !
    Un bacione
