Did someone say toys? It doesn’t matter whether you are a little child or a grown-up child, Hamleys is the greatest toy store in the world, and it’s coming to Leeds! Nothing says Christmas like toys, and nothing says toys like Hamleys. With that logic Hamleys is Christmas. Their huge huggable bear will be waiting, and ready to welcome you in when the new store opens.
Starting way back in 1760, Hamleys is the world’s largest and oldest toy store. There are only 15 stores in the whole of the UK, and while it’s not quite the Argos catalogue, it is still a special treat for the little ones at Christmas time.
When it first opened it had every kind of toy, from rag dolls to tin soldiers. Although the toys may differ these days, the priceless smiles on kids faces, and the fun and laughter that Hamleys represents lives on in his stores. It’s over-the-top decor and dressed up staff show how Hamleys go the extra mile to prove you not just another customer to this toy store.
The new Hamleys store is going to open in Leeds Trinity Centre, which can be found in the centre of town. There has been no opening date given yet, so keep your eyes peeled!
