Toys“R”Us Jewel Changi Airport is the 12th store in Singapore, and the first to collaborate with Kiztopia.
SINGAPORE – Media OutReach Newswire – 14 December 2023 – Toys”R”Us announces the opening of its 12th store at Jewel Changi Airport. The leading destination for toys, games, leisure gear, and education items, Toys”R”Us further solidifies its presence in Singapore with a new store design and layout, exclusive merchandise, and a renewed focus to ignite the passion for play among both kidults and kids. This vibrant space also serves as a ground where tourists and local families can converge to discover the joy of play.
The design language of the store has transformed, embracing a modern minimalistic approach inspired by the timeless art of Piet Mondrian. The clean lines and uncluttered space serve as a backdrop, allowing products to stand out prominently while enhancing navigation and shopping experiences for customers. A pared-down colour palette aids in easy recognition of the space. The shelving system has been significantly improved to align with the customer journey, featuring a low and compact design that fosters increased engagement and provides clear visibility of the products throughout the store.
Exclusive merchandise for the Jewel store
The exclusive range of merchandise at the Jewel Changi Airport store targets both local and international collectors and shoppers with plush toys of Singapore’s icons like the Merlion and the Airport Tower, and culinary treat, the Curry Puff. In collaboration with Mighty Jaxx International, Toys”R”Us will also introduce the exclusive Mr. Koifish Series, available only at the new outlet until December 31. Additionally, Funko Pop will also be releasing an exclusive collectible of Geoffrey holding a globe alongside other exclusive items from brands like Gundam, Gunpla, Jurassic World and Masterpiece Collectible.
“Our aim is to not only provide exceptional products but also create a destination where every individual, kid or adult, can immerse themselves in a world of discovery and entertainment,” says Adelene Teo, General Manager (Singapore, Brunei & Thailand). “The combination of exclusive merchandise and new thematic design will make this store a must-visit destination for travellers and locals alike.”
Introducing aviation-themed fun for all
A first-ever collaboration of its kind where the experts in toys and play come together, Toys”R”Us Jewel Changi Airport will also house an aviation-themed indoor play park by Kiztopia, Singapore’s mega-indoor kids’ edutainment playground, on its grounds.
Occupying 4,500 square feet of space, the specially designed aviation wonderland boasts unique features including a colossal funnel slide that descends into a massive ball pit, an interactive ball-shooting game wall, thrilling obstacle courses, and a giant plane structure to complete the “flight” experience. This will make the perfect setting for family adventures and Instagram-worthy moments without having to leave the country.
Adelene Teo, General Manager (Singapore, Brunei & Thailand) shares, “The collaboration with Kiztopia underscores Toys”R”Us commitment to our core target audience as we elevate the Toys”R”Us experience into a multi-sensorial and immersive one with Kiztopia as our partner.”
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Toys”R”Us to provide our customers more unique concepts and brand-new experiences. We are thankful to be able to expand our presence into a landmark location like Jewel Changi Airport to bring the joy of Kiztopia to more families, including tourists.” said Ms Heidi Tian, Founder and CEO of Kiztopia.
Elevating the Toys”R”Us experience
The Jewel Changi Airport store will also present regular programming, specially curated to increase desire to visit.
To celebrate the Grand Opening, Toys”R”Us has planned in-store activations from Hot Wheels and Lego, and also the ever-popular meet and greet session with the iconic Geoffrey and Friends.
