What does 'Pleien' mean?


Pleien is an old Dutch word that means 'leap for joy, dance, and rejoice'. It's possibly how the word "play" originated.

Pleien the shop is a happy and cosy place, where people can discover unique items amid the serenity of the Singapore River.

Help yourself to a sweet from the candy bowl, and listen to Saturday Bill (Pleien's resident one man band who sings and plays the guitar, if available) as you wander around choosing something special. A piece of art or wall sticker to adorn your wall, clothing and jewellery that are timeless classics, a handmade toy or a beautiful card to tell somebody he/she's loved!
