Paradigm Mall In JB Is Only 40-Min Drive From Woodlands

When it comes to shopping malls, most Singaporeans would’ve seen it all by now. After all, there are over 150 shopping malls – both old and new – to choose from for a weekend shopping trip. 

For an island as small as ours, we sure are big on consumerism. 

But, if the magic of Orchard’s glitzy streetscape has waned in your eyes, you may look over the Causeway for a nice change of scenery.

Paradigm Mall, located in Johor Bahru, has a gigantic treat that awaits you – or your kiddos –  this September holiday. Hint: it’s going to be even more exciting if you’re into tokidoki.

Here’s more on what you can expect.

Tokidoki playground & Unicorno slide

Fans of the Japanese-inspired lifestyle brand will know that no tokidoki experience is complete without their signature 24-metre long tokidoki playground, and 5-metre high Unicorno slide.

Having garnered widespread attention in Singapore during its Changi Airport debut earlier this year, here’s another chance for you to hop on the hype train.

Collectibles from $9.70 (RM29)

As if this isn’t enough to satiate your cravings for all things tokidoki, look out for an array of tokidoki collectibles and plush toys in the mall’s main atrium.

Tokidoki shirts from $30 (RM89)

As the tokidoki event is held in conjunction with the Mid-Autumn Festival, you can also expect a bountiful supply of mooncakes.

Even if you aren’t looking to indulge in them, we think they would make perfect gifts for your loved ones.


From mini fridges to a gramophone, we can’t get enough for their packaging with intricate designs.

They’re great to hoard as decorative items or even storage containers for small accessories in your home.

Mooncake making workshops & dance performances

In the month-long event that ends on 16 Sep, Paradigm Mall has prepared a line-up of performances and activities that lets you make the most out of your weekends.

Every Saturday & Sunday starting 24 Aug, you’ll get to be entertained by Chinese orchestra and traditional dance performances.

Meanwhile, artistic visitors get the chance to showcase their creative skills with colouring contests, DIY home painting workshops, and DIY lantern workshops.

Those feeling a little more adventurous, why not try your hand at rock climbing? There’s a rock wall right next to the Unicorno slide.

Explore the tokidoki castle this holiday

Even though the tokidoki fun has long left Singapore, Paradigm Mall in Johor Bahru brings new hope for those who have yet to live the tokidoki experience.

Besides departing from the hustle and bustle of our city-island and having fun at inflatable playgrounds, there’s something else you can look forward to there: 4D cinemas.
