With a humongous array of toys ranging from 0 to 14 years old and up, there's something for everyone in F.A.O Schwarz. This makes it the perfect place for Jellycat Diner to be situated!

The Jellycat Diner had its grand debut on 23 September 2023, and will be open all-year round. Stars of the Jellycat Diner would be the adorable food-themed plushies: The Amuseable Hot Dog, Taco, Burger and Pizza!
These adorable plushies come with an enamel pin, a sticker sheet and their delightful iconic blue diner packaging. Unwrapping it truly feels like unwrapping the real food but be warned, they are not edible!
A staff dressed in an appropriately-themed diner outfit will package the plushies for you, as though you are getting the actual item to-go. It's a memorable and fun experience for the young and young at heart. The plushies go for 45USD (around 60SGD). That is around the same cost as getting one plushie here in Singapore, so it is definitely worth checking this place out!
The food-themed plushies are not the only ones available at the store. You can get a plethora of cute Jellycat plushies nearby the diner as well! From the popular bunny to the 'just-vibes' amusable croissant, you will be spoiled for choice!
