Lego shopping in Singapore

Updated on 1 Dec 2010: Added Gifts Greeting at Nex.  (Thanks to Shaun!)  Also added Secret Chamber @ Parkway Parade & Gifts Greeting at Great World City.

Updated on 6 Nov 2010: Added Brick Station & Bricks Empire info.

Updated on 26 Sep 2010: Added info on Toystation’s Facebook & Twitter, Toyshunt new outlet at Novena Square, BHG, NTUC Fairprice, Carrefour, Attic Pals & Kidz Story, and various transport info.  Many thanks again to Wongkw & Shaun for your helpful updates.

Updated on 9 Aug 2010: Added links to posts with store pictures of ToyStation & Toyshunt, and info on Lego at John Little department store.

Updated on 24 May 2010: Added info on where to buy custom Lego weapons for your minifigs.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These are some shops I know of in Singapore.   During non-sales period, I prefer Toy Station, for the simple reason that they give regular discount of at least 15% over the standard price and also carry various lifestyle products.

During sales, discounts usually go up to 20%.  At department stores (such as Metro, Takashimaya & Tangs), you may get additional rebates if you have their member/credit/store cards).

Store member privileges are also mentioned below, to the best of my knowledge.

Enjoy shopping!

Update 29 Apr 2010: Please bear with the lousy formatting while I try to figure out the template. Some colours added to store names.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For the benefit of visitors to Singapore, some transportation information is also listed, though taking taxi is probably the easiest and fastest way.  I usually drive, so I do not know how to use public transportation for the rest.   

Lego is generally not cheap in Singapore, not compared to USA and especially not for limited or exclusive sets.   However compared to nearby countries like Malaysia and Indonesia, the prices here are much cheaper (based on my personal shopping experiences in those countries).

Comment: Highly recommended if you want to shop during non-sale period.  Toy Station (TS) carries all retail sets and most (perhaps not all) exclusives.  Also brings in selected lifestyle products.  Limited selection of minifigs, and parts (lamp posts, trees & base plates) available at counter.  May also be able to find some older/discontinued sets (usually at much more reasonable prices than other stores). Call to check availability before you go down.
