First Pop Mart store opens in Malaysia

There’s nothing more thrilling for collectors than splurging on a mystery blind box without a clue on what figurine you’ll be getting – especially if it’s something from a Pop Mart collection. 

While many retailers around Malaysia have already been stocking up on these blind boxes, Pop Mart just opened its first official store in Malaysia at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. It features limited-edition items and popular collectibles for you to expand your collection with.

Malaysians are no strangers to the popular toy brand. Since early 2021, Malaysians have been on the Pop Mart trend, albeit through international selling platforms and retailers. The past two years have seen the company cultivating the Malaysian market to build a good foundation for local offline stores.

The latest outlet in Pavilion KL is also the newest store of the brand in the whole of Southeast Asia – after the Singapore Funan outlet back in 2021 – as an effort to continue its global expansion in the region.
