Children's Little Museum

A long post because I have too many pictures!

A little walk and exploring at Children Little Museum on a weekday afternoon. Quiet & nostalgia. Simply blissful.

Children Little Museum
42 Bussorah Street

The sky and the mosque is so beautiful! Not edited, no filter. Original picture from my iPhone.

Greeted by a friendly uncle from China, he keeps urging me to take pictures, take more pictures. Didn't plan to go to this museum but because the weather is too hot, I took a shelter inside the museum and decided to pay S$2 to go up and take a look. I love museums like this. Not art pieces that I cannot tell, its something related to me & my childhood that will interest me and i believe will interest a lot of people as well.

If you are born in the 80s or earlier, you will find interesting toys/stuff that you had almost forgotten that it even existed. If you are born in the 90s onwards, you may go to Best Denki, Challenger, Games shop. LOL.

I am glad to be born in the 80s, because i think we are the last batch of some fun childhood. We have sega games, so thats considered not quite old-school childhood already. So I guess old-school childhood games died after our batch.

I have never seen this before, so I don't know how it works.

I have these! I always thought that these little dolls are what I collected from the birthday cakes. Birthday cakes used to be cream with a little park (rivers, grass) and dolls. I always wanted to collect these dolls from the birthday cakes. I posted this picture on my Instagram, and a Instagram friend from Hawaii commented that she has these too! Tried to goole the name of these dolls but I failed.

''1980s dolls''
''old school dolls'' all the images are ugly dolls, and I saw a old barbie, grey hair & with wrinkles. WTF.

Longman textbook! I remembered my cousins gave me Longman Textbooks but MOE is very clever, they don't allow us to reuse textbooks given by our elder cousins / siblings so they changed the textbooks very frequently.

Old school salon to perm hair. My late grandma used this! I remembered seeing her with this over her head when she brought me together to the salon.

Basically half of the museum. A small place but every shelf is ful of memories.

This is the other half.

There is also a few notebooks for visitors to write and I captured some funny and rude ones. (of course there are really sweet messages)
