By Zoe Zeng on 08 Sep 2023

Just in case you haven't heard, the first-ever POP TOY SHOW in Singapore is happening over this weekend from 8 to 10 September. This toy show is definitely going to be heaven on earth for avid POP MART toy collectors and blind box enthusiasts, but here's why you should make a trip down even if you don't fall into either of those categories: there are tons and tons of the most adorable collectibles, stationery, trinkets and other goodies available on site!

With over 100 exhibitors gathering at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Halls D & E, in addition to a packed lineup of stage programmes and other scheduled activities at the toy show, it can be incredibly difficult to decide where you should spend your time. Besides the most popular, large exhibits like BEARBRICK and Action City, there are also plenty of lesser-known yet equally amazing booths to see! These 5 booths have the most adorable merch you simply cannot miss — read on to find out more!

#1: Hey Ciao (Booth C23)

Hey Ciao is the ultimate temptation station for those who have a weak spot for Sanrio characters and all things cute! To start with, there's a huge range of collectibles in baby pinks, blues and purples all over the counters around the exhibit. We found Moetech Beans ($3.20) in little blind bags that come in a playful bean, Cinnamoroll, and Sanrio Ice Cream-themed designs.

There are also Emma Colourful Sweetheart Beans ($11.90), another colourful collectible blind bag series that'll worm its way into your heart.

Those who want something a little more... ahem practical, can check out the Sanrio Mini Standing Fans ($9.90) that are shaped like a little airplane! There are Kuromi, Hello Kitty and Cinnamoroll variations of this up for grabs.

#2: Berry Winkle (Booth AE19)

There's something to be said about character goods that are so adorable, they bring out a ferocity hidden deep in shoppers and make them reach for their hard-earned dollars (yes, we caved and bought more than a few adorable items at this booth)! Berry Winkle is a locally-based store offering merch of the aptly named characters: Duck boi, Pigeon boi, and the newest addition to their mischievous team, Crow boi.

You'll be able to find everything from Stickers (from $4) and Washi Tape ($8) to iPad/Laptop Sleeves ($40/$42) and Plushies (from $4) of the very good bois.

There are also Keychain Blind Bags (1 for $6, 2 for $10) of the store's bestselling keychains to satisfy your need for a little surprise. Our favourites out of all their goods are the Card Sleeves (1 for $3, 7 for $15), which can hold your favourite photocards, trading cards or even your best polaroids!

We hope you've got quick reflexes — because you'll need them over at the POP BEAN exhibit! Here you can customise your own glass jar with the adorable POP BEANS of your choice. But you'll have to be fast, because there's a time limit of 3 minutes per person for choosing your desired beans.

Pick from four jar sizes: Small ($59.90), Medium ($78.90), Large ($89.90) and Extra Large ($129.90) to hold your POP BEANS and get ready to shovel madly!

#4: d.atlas studio (Booth AE10)

d.atlas studio has got to be one of the most unique artists exhibiting at the POP TOY SHOW, and you'll see why the moment you get to their booth. The display will look extra familiar to most Singaporeans, especially since the array of goods like Pet Fortune Enamel Pins (1 for $17, 4 for $60), Mini Charms (1 for $6, 2 for $10), and Fortune Blind Boxes (1 for $13, 3 for $30) are inspired by spiritual offerings on an altar — but in an extremely cute form!

The highlight is the selection of playful Amulet Stickers (1 for $6, 3 for $10), which you can pick by choosing a fortune from the bunch of lots provided on the 'altar', then finding the corresponding number among the fortune stickers. The whole process takes no time at all and will provide you and your company with extra fun and giggles.
