Here’s the official press release (270kb .pdf).
As all good things must come to an end, the voting period for the items to be included in the Jubilee Baby Gift has come to a close.
In the two months of public consultation, we have received more than 6,500 item suggestions and close to 20,000 votes cast through our websites, focus groups and the feedback booths set up all around Singapore. Here are the results from the Jubilee Baby Gift voting exercise.
We have really had a blast meeting up with many Singaporeans and hearing their views on how to celebrate the babies that will be born on our nation’s 50th birthday. There were such a variety of different approaches when choosing the items for the Jubilee Baby Gift: some looked for items that would see the most practical use for parents; others chose items that would provide historical significance when the baby grew up and looked at the gift some twenty years from now.
To add a little bit of fun in our voting booths, we gave a set of 5 stones to every participant. It injected a little nostalgia and heritage, and it was wonderful to see how simple games brought generations together.
The final compilation of the Jubilee Baby Gift will be announced in the next few months. Stay tuned!
Thank you so much for helping put together the Jubilee Baby Gift!
