Old memories, Old toys

Our scheduled trip to the Children Little Museum was finally put into action. We took a bus going to Kampong Glam and walked to Arab Street where a very small shop lead to the toy museum on the second floor.

it's still working!

some displays of old robots made of tin

admission to the toy museum on the 2nd floor is $2 per person.
We've already got the tickets. Hopefully it's worth it!

It was not a really big museum of toys. There were some glass cabinets showcasing old toys and memoirs from way back 1950s. There were old school report cards and health books.

this one's an old barber shop chair and salon thing.

getting thirsty? You might want to try some cool drinks at this old drinks stall. 
They even have very all coke bottles!

toys galore from the olden days in Singapore

Ira enjoyed this car track even more. 
Displayed on the walls are the owners baby pictures and some of their formula milk and bottle (made of glass!).

the book shop - with old pencils, erasers, sharpeners and some magazines

go cart anyone?

Ira loves binoculars

So much for our trip down Singapore's memory lane (in terms of toys). This wasn't the biggest and most collection of toys we've seen. But it also amused the kids. They also offer old toys in the shop.
