MINT Museum of Toys

I always walk  past the MINT Museum road sign from Bugis to City Hall but I never had the chance to walk in. I always liked museums because they hold so much knowledge, history and nostalgia in them. In all honesty, I wasn’t much interested in toys until much later when I was enchanted by a friend’s fascination with toys. While I wouldn’t spend the money to collect them, I like to look.

Photos too good to be mine, they’re by Roger again. Check him out for photo shoots.

Betcha didn’t know that MINT stood for something. Here’s a tidbit from their website, “MINT (Moment of Imagination and Nostalgia with Toys) Museum of Toys is the world’s first purpose-built museum for toys.” And woah, the museum is privately owned by a toy collector. It’s so amazing how much toys he accumulated such that he can open his own museum.

Okay, on the other hand, have you seen my Enid Blyton collection? I really ought to take a picture of them soon. My Momster says I’ll have to shift them to my matrimonial home next time.

Okay, back to the topic.

I never knew Robin was different from Robin Hood. It just didn’t come to me.

Poor Robin had to fight baddies in his undies. Someone give the poor dude some pants.
