  • We found this tiny but sophisticated book shop on the way back from cafe. Can’t take photo inside, but it was a very good experience for us to be there. Lots of good educational book for kids. Anyone who have kids, next time you go around there don’t miss it!
  • I've read some bad reviews because of the staff, but they either changed the staff, or maybe it was an exception, because the girls there are incredibly nice. When i was searching for an item they didn't have anymore, they pointed me to an alternative and also called the other store to ask if they had it and had it delivered here by the next day. It is a very nice, cosy bookstore, with lots of books for children and childish grown-ups.
  • The worst staff I've ever met. I liked the book collection, but the staff were too unkind. She just downed me because i searched the Internet. i don't understand. Can't I search inside the store? I didn't take a picture. just searched..a cafe to go after. Even an action that demeans a Korean. I've been traveling a lot, but I've never experienced this before. When I asked her why, she proudly said that I searched the Internet. I still don't understand. I want to ask her. Are you happy to ruin someone's trip?
  • Very nice place with all sorts of children's books. Prices are a downside though, too expensive.
  • I really like the books curated at the store! Awesome place to get children’s picture books! Epistolary books, pop-up, novelty books! What a good range! Great find and what a gem to find in Singapore!!! 💖 The staff were incredulously polite and cheery when I was there! Greeting every patron to the shop with a smile, even for patrons who didn’t make any purchase. Very sincere, I thot! No? Hehe 😍
