Toy Watch is an international company that offers quality watches of different sorts. The company is especially famous in Asia and the United States where several stars are promoting the brand. From this article, you will know where to find Toy Watch store in Singapore and some more details about the company itself.
Toy Watch has about the same concept that first Casio brought into the US market with the G-Shock watches. The watches come with about the same outlook and the same structure but there are many-many variations in colour and this way, in its outlook without losing its trademark form. An Italian designer who had become a watch designer from being an avid fan of wristwatches invented Toy Watches. His name is Marco Mavilla and he was the one who first come up with the design and business concept of Toy Watch. Toy Watch collections are all made of plastic that makes them very light to carry and makes them look quite similar to some Swatch pieces. Toy Watch debuted in the US in 2006 and thanks to its good promotion soon stars have started to buy the Toy Watch timepieces and as of today, Toy Watch collections are very well promoted and widely bought all over the country. Toy Watch US is a semi-independent subsidiary of Toy Watch SA in Italy.
Interestingly the watches are not close to the US fame in Europe, perhaps because of the already overcrowded watch market. In other places, Toy Watches are not taken too seriously because of their plastic material and simple forms. In the US, the Toy Watch can also thank its fame and popularity to the famous show personality Oprah who wore the watch and heavily promoted it in 2007, as of today, it is among the most favourite watch brands of Michelle Obama, the wife of US President Barack Obama.
The first collection of the Toy Watch was already very one-sided which contained the same size oversized watches. Today it has 25 different collections from children’s watches to the oversized watches. It also deals with Bling watches that are heavily covered with crystals. In the beginning of the 2000’s these watches have still greatly matches especially with the flavour of the Bling and Hip-Hop generations. Due to the great colours and variations, the watches have soon become favourites in schools. The brand has just started to expand on the world market, which specifically means Asia in this case. Its first boutiques opened in India in 2010 and around the same time also in Singapore.
Recently Toy Watch also deals with more expensive pieces, using gemstones, precious metals and even mother of pearl in its collections. Similarly, to G-Shock Toy Watch also asks well-known personalities and designers to take part in the designing process. This year Missoni deals with the limited collection. The brand offers watches for different generations with different flavour and need. Here you can find your watch no matter you like the pop culture or you are a motorcyclist. In Singapore there are two known stores of Toy Watch one of which you can find in the downtown Ngee An City and the other one is its label store located within the ION Orchard Mall. Far Eastern people, especially the teenagers love the bright colours so the Toy Watch collections are bought up in high numbers. You may also find them in the Funan Digital Mall.
There are all sorts of toy watches in Singapore and their names can mean multiple thing. First, toy watches are those toys for children with the help of which they can learn the time. These can be either functioning watches or non-functioning replicas of watches. These sorts of watches are commonly sold in the toy stores all over Singapore.

There are also watchmakers that make toy watches for children, which are functioning pieces, and with the help of which they can learn the time. The most popular of these watches are the watches of Flik Flak. Flik Flak is the company of Swatch specialised in the making of toy watches, which means such functioning pieces which look attractive for children and help them a lot to learn how to tell the time from an analogue watch.
