GOOD NEWS! There’s a new local children museum was set up last year and it named CHILDREN LITTLE MUSEUM. I was there last week and found that it’s very interesting. Inside the museum, you are not only seeing old toys which played by kids during 50s to 60s last century, but also seeing a little book shop, little primary school, barber shop..etc. Although the shop, bookshop is just a prop, but they look really real and these are all handmade by the owner, Mr. Alan Tan. Children Little Museum is somewhere near Arab street. visitors are allowed to take photos, buying old school goodies and explore what parents play during kampong days.

My Toy Factory – New Project 2009


SPACE PATROL CAR was manufactured by NOMURA in Japan during the 60s in the last century. We have received an order to make this fantastic battery operated toy car and Mr Wang is working on this project now.


Anyone can tell me which one is the original, and which one is the prototype?


I think Mr Wang also confused which one is the original… haha! πŸ™‚

My Toy Factory – Part 2

My Toy Factory – Part 1


Operating a toy museum for the past 4 years, the most common question from visitors or reporters is, is museum my full time job? Yes, I will say that, but from last years onwards, after a small investment to a toy factory, tin toy making become my full time business… For the past 1 year, while I stationed in Shanghai, my partner and I are successfully upgraded our tin toy products and start to build a “branded” image in overseas market.

Jack in the box is one of our most popular toys and we have produced more than 20 types of Jack in the box for our overseas customers for the past few years. And our workers are now working on this project.




Toy Exhibition at Shanghai / Nov 2008 – Day 35 Interview by AsiaTV News


HK Asia TV is here today to interview me. They are surprised that my museum is in Singapore as when they are in Singapore last year, STB (Singapore Tourist Promotion Board) never introduced our museum to them. But the crew and the reporter said they will visit Museum of Shanghai Toys in their next trip to Singapore. Wow…… πŸ™‚









Toy Exhibition at Shanghai / Nov 2008 – Day 5 Opening Day


Today, 25 Oct 2008, is the 1st day of the exhibition. Although the visitors are not as many as last year when I had my exhibition in HK in the 1st day, but I am still really happy and excited.














Outside the exhibition hall, there is a small toy shop which allows visitors to purchase their childhood memories – TIN TOY. πŸ™‚









In fact, the most interesting part for this exhibition is not our museum collection, it should be our punching machine :-). In order to attract the eyeballs from our visitors, either adults or kids, we bring along our small punching machine from my toy factory to the exhibition and demonstrate how toy workers assemble tin toys. Many kids would like to find out what’s that and they even have a chance to use their small legs to press the punching machine. Haha!
