mint museum of toys

“Whether you are a child at heart or an avid toy collector, The Mint Museum of Toys has something for everyone. Housed in a contemporary five-storey building, it boasts a rich mix of nostalgia, education and inspiration.” – Mint website

One of the highlights from our recent trip to Singapore had to be the Mint Museum of Toys. I really did feel like a kid in the candy store! We decided to start from the top and worked our way down each floor. As soon as we stepped out of the lift, we were plunged straight back into childhood.

I particularly liked the design development of some of the toys, how they had evolved throughout the decades, responding to new technology and the latest trends. I guess you can say that the toys are a good time capsule that embodies the Zeitgeist of that era. Who knew there could be so many variations of the Mickey Mouse doll?
