Hi winth, I know of some shops in Woodlands but that will be too far for you.. :lol: They are those type of neighbourhood shops which sells lots of different toys, stationaries and even household items all in one..sort of like the ABC Shop..

And I saw 7-11 at Admiralty MRT also selling some.. err. thou' I don't know if you can find it in other 7-11 outlets...

Happy hunting!

Hi RRMummy,

Yup. Woodlands is way out for me. Over here, haven't seen neighbourhood shops that sell such things leh...

I was hoping to find them from ToysRus, but never did.

Promised them kite-flying this weekend, hope we could fulfill it.
*Watch out for my next thread, how to fly a kite* :lol:

I saw one neighbourhood store at West Coast.

Behind the hawker center (Opp West Coast Plaza, used to know as Ginza). Near a playground and Singaporepool.

wow... this one sounds accessible enough for me.
DH said the mama shop at West Coast Park should have, but I'm not going to try my luck like that. Will go there to search, Thanks!

Toa Payoh is still okay, just 10 mins drive.
Where is it exactly? is it near the Yakun/Polar Puff cafe?

Saw some selling at kiosks at East Coast Park, Marina Cove. The kiosks are beside the kiddy rides at Marina Cove.
