There are a few shopping centers that are paticularly "kid oriented," in terms of shops, including:Tanglin Mall
(a nice stroll from Orchard MRT/train station:http://www.tanglinmall.com.sg/index.php?op...=8&Itemid=9The Forum
(just off of Orchard Road, a 5 minute walk up the street from Tanglin Mall):http://forumtheshoppingmall.com.sg/ United Square
on Thomson Road (super easy peasy MRT train ride from Orchard Road).http://www.unitedsquare.com.sg/
On Orchard, there is also the aforementioned H&M. Also check out the big kids' section at Takashimaya
, the Japanese department store (brands from all over the world) at Nyee Ann City on Orchard Road. Can't miss it.
For less expensive shopping, Mustafa Centre
in Little India is my absolute favorite! Be sure to hit every floor!
The MRT is a very cheap & efficient way to get around, as are taxis.
