This shop carries the most selections of Playmobil toys, even more selections than Toy R Us. At one time, it was not easy to find Playmobil toys in Singapore, I read in a forum once that most parents import in Playmobil toys from overseas.
I tried doing that myself but the original Playmobil online shop did not deliver to Singapore. So I got my friend from Canada to order for me and then re-deliver to me. The toys were cheaper overseas but the freight charges cost a lot.
I did a calculation, I did not really save much by asking my friend from Canada to send me the toys. So now I am buying my Playmobil from this shop. If you cannot find what you want on display, you can talk to the friendly staff, they will order what you can see from the catalog for you.
Charming store, but not many toys
Action Toyz is a charming toy shop filled with tons of dozens of toys. I was spoilt for choice when I have to pick out a gift for my 7 year old cousin. I first thought that it was going to be an easy task. 7 year old boy with a love for cars should be manageable, right? But boy was I wrong.
I was stucked with transformers, radio-controlled cars and Thomas & Friends. Just as I was debating which to choose, I was distracted by the other toys, mainly FISCHERTECHNIK. It reminds me of LEGO in a way.
Service was pretty great. The staff were very familiar with their products. They were polite and friendly.
I must be living under a rock as I was amazed to find out that the shop still sells beyblade. I actually thought that beyblade doesn't exist anymore. (Please don't judge me) I was bummed when Sylvanian Families were nowhere in sight.
It got me thinking. I figured it'll be better to buy toys at a department store instead. They have more sales. What's more, with a membership card, I might as well shop there. In addition, they have a wider range of toys. Granted that Action Toyz is a charming and lovely toy store, but i can't help to feel that department stores have more varieties.
