Extremely engaged, entertaining and helpful staff. Magnificent range of toys. You can probably get things a little cheaper online, but it's a tiny price to pay for the entertainment, the selection and the wide-eyed wonder of your kids.

My 7 year old felt like he was in heaven. Even the kid in me came alive too. Toys for all ages. Staff doing a lot of promo. Toys are more expensive here than other places around London.

Well if you have a kid and want to buy him/her a toy then visit Hamleys. A multi-storey store full of toys. I found the prices a little upscaling but this may be due to the £-€ exchange rate. This is not a department store....More

It is already known that Hamleys is a great toy store but if you like HPotter, there is a whole floor with related stuff so it worths the visit!

Hamleys is a dream toy store. Truly amazing place for adults and kids. I was really shocked to see that everything is at least 30% more expensive than other shops that sell exactly the same branded stuff. I wont be back in a rush...
