Children Little Museum

All thanks to Daddy & Mummy, di-di & I found a tiny gem - tucked away along Bussorah Street, in front of the Sultan Mosque.

It's called the Children Little Museum, and boy the stuff inside really opened up our eyes!

It's not too big a museum, but it's filled with stuff from the old days (as Daddy calls it) where us children get to see and of course, for the adults to reminiscence.

Check out this old barber shop set-up!

As you can tell, we had lots of fun role-playing... and playing with all the tools of the trade that the barber once used.

So very fun! :P

And Daddy fell asleep while waiting for his hair to be done. Hahahaha...

And check out all these retro stuff from last time... Daddy & Mummy had a field day explaining to us what all these items meant to them last time... but me think di-di & me were most interested in th toys of yesteryear lor. Hee hee...


They even this big box which Daddy said was how people used to watch shows last time... wah, so unlike the plasma tv we're used to wor... :P

They even had this mock set-up of a school that the children attended last time...

... where di-di immediately picked out his fave seat in class.

Recess time soon came... and we all ran to the mamak shop.

Di-di forgot to bring his pocket money I think, so he had to make a call to ask for fresh funds...

Luckily, Mummy was selling drinks nearby... Wahahaha...

Really retro stuff huh... I don't even recognize these bottles... only the current cans or packets which I'm familiar with.

There were still some more other stuff to check out before we called it a day...

And when we left, there was also an authentic mamak store outside the museum which sells all the tikam-tikam stuff!

Of course we had to get something for remembrance lah... hee hee...

We definitely had loads of fun at the museum. do check it out if you are free!!!

Hi, we love reading your blog! We will be visiting Singapore next month and would like to know if MINT or Children Little Musuem will be more suitable for kids around 4.5 and 6.5 years old? Thanks in advanced!

Hi there,

Thanks for dropping by our blog!

Children Little Museum stocks stuff that are reminiscent of the older days in Singapore. As such, I think the nostalgia factor may rank higher in us locals rather than in tourists.

MINT showcases a toy collection that is more universal and hence, I think your kids might enjoy it more.

Hope it helps!
