An Educational Place to Visit in Singapore

Just this week, we had a chance to explore some of the warehouses next to Singapore Press Holdings at Toa Payoh.

My wife was looking for a distributor for children’s products and we stumbled upon Beacon Educational Supplies.

They supply kindergarten and Nursery supplies for many of the Pre-schools in Singapore.

Looks like an ordinary office but inside, we found a treasure trove of educational toys for the kids!

There were lots of study charts…children’s books…

And even well crafted wooden washing machines and kitchen stoves.

They were made of wood and of good quality. Nathan had fun playing with them and they would definitely be a good investment for schools and people who have lots of children! :)

Best of all, they are the sole agents for these tricycles from Denmark called Winther


These are the same tricycles found in schools such as Chiltern House and Pat’s School house. They are also super durable compared to the China ones that you normally find on the market.

The tyres have a rubber lining and they are known to withstand the toughest of children.

We wanted to buy one for Nathan and Nadine but the cheapest one will cost $350.

Super Ex right!

Well, in the end, we did not get one for ourselves, but this place is definitely an interesting place to visit when u need educational toys!

Here, you will not find any Transformers, Winnie the Pooh or Thomas the Train toys…

Instead, you will find toys that teach you Math, Balancing, Fine Motor and Memory Skills!

This is a place for a discerning parent to visit! :)

Parenting Tip:

Look out for places such as these, in order to get a good price on your toys. When u spend your money at Takashimiya, u might not be getting the best bargain possible.
