Technology for daily commuting sure has come a long way since the first use of farecards in 1987. As part of EZ-Link’s attempt to modernise its fare payment system, the company launched the EZ charm — a trendy upgrade of the original EZ-Link card design!
Besides providing the obvious benefit of allowing owners to conveniently bypass fare gates without whipping out their card, they double as fashionable trinkets with their limited edition themes and designs. Looking to buy EZ charms for yourself? Read on for our list of must-own EZ-Link charms in Singapore!
1. Wonder Woman EZ-Link Charm
Fans of DC Comics can rejoice as the Wonder Woman EZ charm swoops in to save us from daily commuting inconveniences! Capitalising on the popularity of the 2017 superhero flick, the Wonder Woman EZ charm remains faithful to her comic book likeness and shows the Amazon Princess in her classic red, blue and gold outfit. It also adopts a big head and small body, caricature-like design, making the charm even more adorable!

Give everyone’s favourite sleeping giant a new home on your phone when you buy a Snorlax EZ charm! A fan-favourite among Pokemon enthusiasts, Snorlax is beloved for his cuddly appearance and laidback lifestyle of eating and sleeping. While we felt it was a missed opportunity to use a plush-like material to highlight Snorlax’s fluffy tummy, it’s still a must-own EZ charm for any Pokemon fan!

Regardless of how you feel about the cat-like character, you can’t help but admire how many different variations of Hello Kitty EZ charms there are on the market.

Although the holiday season is over, this doesn’t mean you can’t rock a Christmas-themed Pikachu EZ charm! Placing the spotlight on the iconic yellow mouse, the Pikachu EZ charm portrays the playful Pokemon winking while donning a festive Santa hat.
