Being my first time in Hamleys I was surprised to find out that this store has 5 levels which range from baby toys to teenager toys. Hamleys brings out the inner child in you as you are literally surrounded by childhood memories and there is even a floor specialising in ps4 Xbox equipment. A great shop and a good tourist... More

I remember visiting Hamley's when I was little and finding it magical so I couldn't wait to take my 4 year old for the first time, and it didn't disappoint. What a fabulous store. It has everything you could possibly imagine. Some things cost slightly more than your average toy shop but most items I felt were quite reasonable. In... More

Took my 4 year old daughter here recently and wandered the floors. She finally chose make a bear as a toy - using a my little pony. Relatively crowded and fun for the young ones

We could have spent many more hours, we could have spent much more money. Loads of fun, lots of things to try before you buy. Lots of stuff you can't get back in Australia yet. So much Peppa Pig stuff my girl went ape. Big kids toys here to, you don't have to look to hard for that gift to... More

A place where you can find all the toys you want to buy for everyone in the family, including yourself. It is a large toy store with many floors with dedicated toys catered for different ages; and a floor for girls - i.e. princess and hello kitty. One of the most remarkable thing I find Hamleys is worth a visit... More

If you are travelling as a family and have children in your group it is highly recommended that you visit Hamleys in Regent Street quite near to Picadally area.. It is one of the biggest Toy store spread over Four Levels. There are Toys for all ages. You have Salesmen demonstrating various toys in all the areas and you can... More

The kids were in heaven but I found the sales people very pushy and in your face. My ten year old ended up being charmed into spending £70 on remote control toys ( he'd been saving his pocket money for weeks). When we returned home the first wee car was not working fully within 20 minutes. It cost £30 in... More

After paying all that money, it was very disappointing to see some of the toys at a £1 shop. It is mostly the toys that their staff demonstrate on the shop floor. I now understand what the effort is for. You can take your child there for the atmosphere but do not purchase anything. Even sainsburys sells the same toys... More

We were told that Regent Street had the coolest 4 level toy store! We went and bought a ton of candy, a helicopter, and other fun things my son picked out. The Lego area was so cool! They did some really cool things! The staff was incredible! Loved this place!

I've had the opportunity to visit Hamleys every few years for the the last 35+. Toys here are more expensive than other locations, but the number of toys, the staff, and the fact that you can play with and experience so many if the toys make this a unique experience. I was able to take my daughter for her first... More
