Books & stationery to prep for school at POPULAR BookFest

After a two-year hiatus, BookFest is back for its 16th edition with a massive physical event spanning six halls at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Like the many occasions before this, a wide range of books and stationery will be on offer at up to 70% off. They include POPULAR-exclusive PAW Patrol merchandise that are both adorable and practical for the little ones to use at school.

Spark an early interest in reading with books like ‘The Ruff Ruff Picture Dictionary’ and ‘A Race Against Time’, which impart useful knowledge that could give your child a head start.

Books won’t be enough to feed their PAW Patrol obsession, so why not add stationery items such as a spiral sketch book, notebook or A4 file.

The more you buy for the kiddos, the happier they’re likely to be. And that won’t hurt your wallet as much when you can get 20% off three or more products.

Moreover, spending a minimum of S$30 on PAW Patrol merch gets you a free luggage tag that the little ones can proudly attach to their bags.

Of course, there’ll be promos on other books and stationery so the older kids and working adults can stock up on their supplies for the new year too.

Besides the event-wide discount, look out for massive deals on over 330 Daily Special items that will be curated daily throughout the 10 days of BookFest.

From 9 to 11 Dec, for instance, the prices of the following products will be slashed significantly:

  • ‘Komi Can’t Communicate’ 20 – S$8.90 (U.P. S$11.90)
  • The Art Of The Good Life — S$8.90 (U.P. S$19.90)
  • Thermos Cool Jug 1.9L – S$19 (U.P. S$39)
  • Playdoh Cash Register – S$19.90 (U.P. S$31.90)

Even if they’re not on your shopping list, you’ll never know what might entice you enough to head home with some extra loot.

IT gadgets from S$1 for everyday tech needs

With nearly everything going online over the pandemic, equipping ourselves with the right gadgets and appliances is important.

Doing that doesn’t have to cost a fortune when you can bid for them from as low as S$1 at the Gadgets & IT Show 2022 at BookFest.

Those who can’t win the bid need not fret as there’s also a special bundle set comprising the Nintendo Switch OLED Model for just S$379 (U.P. S$549).

There is limited quantity for this marked down price, so you’d need to hurry and grab yours before stocks run out.

Suppose you prefer to do your shopping peacefully than engage in a bidding war. In that case, BookFest has fixed-price items like these wireless earbuds for high-quality music to accompany you on your commutes.

Since streaming music could drain your phone’s battery, having a portable charger on hand will be beneficial.

In addition to products, the Gadgets & IT Show will feature a Nintendo Trial Play Concept Booth where you can try out the Pokémon Scarlet & Violet games and receive a free Pokémon Sun Visor.

Pokémon fans will be in for a thrill as Pikachu will be showing up at the stage area of Hall 401 for a short meet-and-greet session presented by Shogakukan Asia from 1.30pm to 2.30pm on 17 Dec.

Exciting activities for the whole family

Just one meet-and-greet session may not be enough to keep the restless children entertained, which is why BookFest has several more in store.

Before Pikachu’s special appearance, the following beloved characters will be at the event for precious photo ops:

Prizes for shoppers at POPULAR BookFest

While such a huge event like this often means spending lots on a shopping spree, some lucky customers can walk away with cash, gold, and other attractive prizes too.

Upon reaching the entrance of the exhibition hall, collect a PLINKO Hunt Map and use it to locate five different checkpoints. Once you’ve found them, complete tasks to collect stamps and finish your map.

You can exchange your completed map for a token before dropping it down the PLINKO board to claim a prize. Here’s where you can find the End Point as indicated on the PLINKO Hunt Map:
