Christmas is just round the corner and if you have not finished your Christmas shopping, look no further than Tom & Stefanie. Their flagship store over at West Mall spans 2 stories and is really a one-stop shop for the whole family. They have apparel for men and women, and homeware, but the bulk of their items are for children. They carry so many brands under one roof, such as Hot Wheels, Transformers, Disney Princess, Nerf guns, Barbie, Play-Doh, etc, that you are sure to find something for the kids.

For the older kids, they have a range of board games and card games to suit every budget.
This is the widest selection of kids bags I have ever seen! Besides the typical characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Thomas the train and Disney Princesses, they also have Angry Bird, Ben 10, Superman, and even Monster High.
They sell strollers as well, from Combi, Bon Bebe, Good Baby and UBB. Hmm, I really don’t think there’s anything for children that they don’t sell!
Genuine Superman apparel for both boys and girls. They also have genuine Marvel apparel like Thor and Iron Man.
They have their own line of funky and very cheery children’s clothing. Great for Christmas and Chinese New Year shopping. Just so you know what to expect, don’t expect great service here as the outlet is really quite big and you have to hunt for a staff if you need some help. Well, I was happy to take my time browsing and trying to make a decision given the huge selection of stuff. It sure beats having someone breathing down your neck while you’re trying to shop.
Their swim wear section caters to babies all the way to adults.

We had received store vouchers for this review and the kids decided that Kate should have a nice Christmas present. #4 chose this scooter cum luggage bag as Kate is at the stage where she loves ride-ons. She figured that they could get a lot of mileage out of this toy as they could have a lot of fun with it at home pulling Kate around, and it would come in handy for our trips as Kate hasn’t got her own luggage yet. I have to say she made a wise choice indeed.

#4 pulled her around the house and she had such a swell time. Her feet can’t touch the ground yet, so for independent riding, the child has to be at least 2 years old. For her though, she has no shortage of volunteers willing to pull her around. The scooter comes in red, blue and pink.
That is one mall worth checking out! It has by far the best mall playground in Singapore (the mall is running but the playground is still not open as yet). It has one of those play structures which you find at indoor playgrounds, and my kids are so looking forward to climbing up to the treehouse at the top of the play structure. There’s also a mini rock climbing wall at the side. And of course, there’s also a wet play area right next to it. This playground is FREE, but I heard that they even have a separate ‘Kids Club’ one floor up, whereby if you spend a minimum sum of $60, you can put your kids in the club while you enjoy your shopping in peace, and there will be activities and workshops to occupy them. This is the first time I’m glad I’m staying in the West!
