Neighborhood: Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
How to get there
  • bridge • 4 min walk
  • national Ave • 8 min walk

Hamleys is one of the biggest toy store chains in the world. This Hamleys is probably one of the biggest if not the biggest one. It has merry-go-round, a slide which goes from one floor to another and as well as a large collection of toys which can awestruck kids as well as adults.
I would highly recommend people to stop by this place if they have some spare time and would like to do something different on their trip to Prague.

A large toy store that has very little to do with Prague.

Yet it is enormously popular and it is easy to see why. It is similar to an amusement park and you don't pay a fee to enter.
if you are visiting without children a visit may cost you nothing. Bring children and it will be another story, for sure.

In contrast, a tiny toy store called Rocking Horse - in the Hradcany area - sells hand made Czech toys and is a wonderful place to visit too.
It is always good to have choices ....

If you know about Hamleys toy stores then you don't need to read any further, if not then just read my review title. This toy store is like something from a movie. Mainly it is an extravagant two story toy store with all the toy brands you will normally find in the Czech Republic. Warning! All the toys here are more expensive than in most toy stores in the Czech Republic. Frankly, the only reason we went in there was to see the decorations. There are employees demonstrating some toys, and places where kids can play. In the basement is an overpriced Lego exhibit that isn't worth the cost. If you visit, I would recommend just walking thru, and then saving your money to buy from another store.

While the store has an impressive selection of toys and interactive playthings, many of those interactive displays didn’t work during our visit, and most of those that did required hefty admission prices. We’d been there three years ago, and since that time the whole store appears not to have been cleaned. Additionally, the price of the toys is high. The final insult came after we spent nearly 2000 crowns on toys, and were shocked to discover that they charged 25 crowns to use the restroom! Unless it’s for a particulal toy unavailable anywhere else, I’d recommend going elsewhere.

Nice to visit. Enjoyed life size Captain America and other toys. I should have just enjoyed what was there to look at and not have purchased anything. This store is way overpriced. Since I did not quickly convert CZ money to Euro, I was shocked when the total for a 3 inch tram keychain was 9 Euro. If there had not been such a language barrier and people behind me, I would have asked that the transaction be voided. The same keychain was 2 Euro everywhere else!! I felt taken advantage of, but thank goodness it was only 9 Euro! Enjoy the sights, but Buyer Beware!

I went into the Hamleys store late afternoon when it was quiet after seeing Marvel and Harry Potter items on display.

I walked into the store, no more than 15 metres and got asked what I was doing and what I wanted in English (Not in a nice way either) I told the member or staff what I was looking for and they didn't help and ignored my response.

I walked through the store to find the sections I was looking for to be stopped by a member of staff playing with drones, controlling them very close to people. He stood in my way telling me I had to try the drone, I had no interest in it. He went on to say I would probably break it anyway. I ignored him as I didn't want to rise to his ignorance.

I found the Harry Potter section I was looking for and had a look but I already had the items which were displayed so proceeded to leave. Again to be stopped by the drone coming very close to my face.

I promptly left the shop without looking anymore as I didn't feel comfortable or wanted in the shop.

Picture as proof I was in the store.

Incredible. The laser tag, slide, mirror maze and butterflies were great. The toys were so-so, pretty much anything you can get elsewhere. The staff was what made it. The drone guy "MO" was great with our very shy kids. Cannot recommend this place enough. Went two days in a row and could have gone back for more. Adults liked it just as much as the kids.

Visited with 2 grandkids at this time of Covid19, and this famous store with enormous choices of toys for all ages was empty, missing the children’s joy and laughter. We spent about an hour playing and choosing toys, the huge snake slide provided lots of entertainment and the staff was kind and very helpful.

Visiting Hamleys had been decided upon by my two daughters (aged 9 and 10) way before heading to Europe from New Zealand. We knew from reviews and photographs that the experience would be impressive however something (well actually someone) made the experience so memorable that we will never forget it! At the top of one of the escalators on one of the many floors my daughters bumped into Aaron Wood - personal shopper Hamleys. Within seconds he had them laughing and had their complete attention. His knowledge of the products was first class as was his knowledge of the history of Hamleys. I have never written a review on trip advisor before but felt compelled to do so because Aaron was such a star and literally turned visiting Hamleys into an unforgettable memory for my daughters.Hamleys are very fortunate to have employed him - I’m sure they have been told this before but in case it has been missed .... look after this employee because when we left he was Mr Hamley !!!

Okay in full disclosure I worked in a toy store during college and also had the opportunity to visit what I once thought was the best toy store in the world (FAO Schwartz) many years ago. However, this toy store has everything. Great selection and loads of activities for kids and parents. We wanted our kids to be younger so we could engage in the many activities. But it was good they weren't younger because we would have had to pry them away from the store. We don't go shopping too much during our travels but this is one place that I would encourage people to visit if they have young kids or teenagers.
