The old and the new nestle snugly next to each other in Tiong Bahru. Hip cafes and swanky boutiques lounge easily side-by-side, against the backdrop of iconic conservation buildings.
One of the oldest housing estates in Singapore, the neighbourhood was built in the 1930s.
Now, neo-gentrified Tiong Bahru is also home to chic resto-cafes and upmarket shops where people – yes, even the little ones – can have some playful chomp and romp.
Come on, let’s have a little day out on foot with our kewpies and eat, browse, and play!
Nana & Bird
Both mummy and bub can have a good time at Nana and Bird Kids. Chic wear and accessories for mum, and hip apparel for children. Everyone goes home happy.
And oh, harried mummies will love the spacious – and safe – play area strewn with lovely toys to occupy the kids while the adults shop.
Bop around on a larger-than-life sized leather rabbit, muck around with click-clack wooden toys, or simply play make-believe with silly hats and weave in and out of the Alice in Wonderland-esque colour-block fitting rooms. We didn’t really feel like leaving either.
Nana & Bird was started by two best friends Nana (Georgina) and Bird (Chiew Ling). The carefully curated multi-label store carries apparel and accessories such as Los Angeles-based Building Blocks, and funky homeware such as Heinui from France and British brand Falcon Enamelware.
Nana & Bird Kids, a recent offshoot of the original brand, features refreshing, edgy designs by labels like Singapore-owned Cavalier and Swedish brand Mini Rodini.
