    Hamleys: Toy shop

    by novsco61 Written Jul 20, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I visited this shop 14 years ago and was astonished - 5 storeys of toys drove me crazy.
    My daughter insisted on visiting this shop - so we went there. She was confused .... She wanted to have everything ... But the prices were much to high ....
    We spent there almost 2 hours.

    What to buy: Nothing, because the prices are high,high,high.....

    What to pay: A fortune ...

    Hamleys: A World of Toys

    Barbie Rules!

    This is one of the biggest toy stores I have ever seen. It is 7 floors of nothing but toys - tens of thousands of them of all kinds - dolls, stuffed animals, vehicles, crafts, computer games with, of course, the ever present Barbies shown in the photo. We did a one stop trip here for souvenirs for our 4 grandchildren. Our six year-old granddaughter has dozens if not hundreds of stuffed animals and when I asked her what she wanted from London she said, "I don't have a panda bear and really, really want one." Her mother pointed out that pandas were really from China, a long way from London. When I asked again later she said, "If you are near Japan, I would like a panda bear." Hamleys had wonderful pandas!

    What to buy: TOYS, TOYS, TOYS. If you have children with you, this will be an unforgettable place for them to visit. They can even pick out a "bear skin" and watch it being stuffed - a made to order teddy bear!

    What to pay: From the sublime to the ridiculous.

    Hamleys

    Hamleys is a huge shop for toys, games and models. Spread over six or seven floors you can buy almost any game, doll, toy or hobbie thing you could ever want for yourself or your child.

    There is also a huge cuddly toy and teddy bear shop which includes some classic collector bears worth over ý1000

    What to buy: Whether you buy or look, or if you a child or adult you should see this amazing store.

    Beware though, it is crazy near Christmas, but nicely decorated

    Sports and games: HAMLEYS

    by Umea6 Written Dec 25, 2003

    This is the most famoust toy store in London. It is located at Regent Street. It is hard to miss, because they are always having some kind of promotion of newly arrived toys on the street.

    The variety of toys is amazing. I easily stayed at the store for two hours and I am an adult. Imagine if you bring kids. It is like paradise to them.

    What to buy: Anykind of toys!

    What to pay: Everything in London is expnsive!

    Spot the Giraffe

    On my first trip to London, at the age of 9, the placeI wanted to see most was Hamley's. Though toy shops are usually for children you will be surprised how many adults can be seen wandering around Hamley's.

    Hamleys toy shop

    Probably the most famous toy shop in the country, it was a real treat coming here as a kid. The shop is large and has toys for all kids, both young and old.
    Gets so full in the run up to Christmas that you may have to queue outside before they let you in.

    What to buy: Toys!

    What to pay: You will pay more for toys bought here than elsewhere.
