If you’re a Tokidoki fan, this psychedelic mess will be familiar to you.
Tokidoki, which means “sometimes” in Japanese, is a lifestyle brand with an extensive range of products to its name.
Products include apparel, handbags, cosmetics, accessories, toys and more.
It has a huge global fan base, and understandably so because it’s marketed so cleverly with this crowd of attention-grabbing characters, with their bright colours and simple yet iconic designs.
And It’s Now Available in Singapore
If you’re an online shopper and also a fan of EZ-Link (?), you may know that last month, Shopee partnered with EZ-link to launch two Tokidoki EZ-Charms exclusively on their site.
You may also know that both charms sold out within 12 hours, which explains why you most likely do not have the Mermicornos or Donutellas gracing your wallet/phone.
Well, dry your eyes, get out your credit cards and prepare for another battle because a new tokidoki EZ-Charm is coming your way.
…in EZ-Charm form.
What are EZ-Charms?
For those still unaware, EZ-Charms are essentially EZ-Link cards in a different form. EZ-Link likes to call it the “latest form of contact-less technology”.
So they’re supposed to work exactly like EZ-Link cards, meaning they work by tapping and you can use them on public transport, retail and vending outlets.
Basically anywhere that currently accepts EZ-Link for payment. To top up your EZ-Charms, go to any EZ-Link card top up channel.
So you have this cute yet fully functional thing dangling from your wallet, can these trinkets do no wrong?
Well, besides the hefty price, these charms also expire sooner at 3 years from the date of encoding, instead of 5 years for the usual cards.
They’re also only available in Adult Anonymous option, so students hoping to ride your trains and buses in style from now on, consider the price of your actions.

And again, mark your calendars
