Children Little Museum - Singapore's Toys of History

When you’re young, all you dream is growing up and being able to do all the adult stuffs that seem cool. Irony is, when you get older, there’s a distinctive longing to be a kid again because it seems better (or cooler). You act, think, and feel like a kid. Everything kid-like is something that you secretly or openly enjoy doing. You hold on to youth in as much as you can. The Children Little Museum of Singapore gives people a chance to hold on to that youth once again. It's a unique museum for all the young ones and young at heart out there. This museum at 42 Bussorah Street is small and packed with favorable surprises. It’s a two storey place that looks similar to a quaint house during the 1980s era. For only 2 SGD, you’ll get a chance to reminisce about your childhood through different toys and stories, as this place houses traditional toys from different parts of Asia.

Everything looks vintage and very cool. The first floor is full of huge hip items; things that will remind you of events from the past and good-have-beens. The place looks like a small bar or club during the olden times: there's a bar area, refrigerator, and nice lighting. You’ll actually see how resourceful and creative people from the olden days were. The details, colors, and structures were so awesomely created. The second floor is a little different. It’s more all-encompassing than the first floor. Every classic toy are kept, labeled, and left for admiration. You’ll see toys from different eras, and from different races.

You’ll see toys for girls, sports toys, and book shops.  There are plastic toys, cameras and coconut leaves insects. Crafts, humpty dumpty eggs, and gasings. You’ll see an old hawker stall and a pretty decent imitation of a barber shop. 

Funny thing is, you'll see adults visiting this place more than kids. The youth nowadays prefer all the digital happiness they can get from their toys. But once in a while, you'll see kids visiting this place, and enjoying and paying tribute to the toy era of the last few decades (it's gaining popularity!).

This is a reminder that even as adults can still have child-like  dreams and happiness; that we are backed-up by great childhood memories. Likewise, for the youth who visit this place, it’s a good reminder that formative years are truly worth preserving – need to enjoy and make the most out of it. The  museum is a good reminder of childhood and adulthood, but most certainly, of all things cool and distinctive.
