Spent the best part of Saturday browsing around Hamleys. Once the biggest toy shop in the world – now still thriving not only as a successful private enterprise that can trace it’s roots back to even before Harrods, but also as a visitor’s attraction to rival Buckingham Palace. The best thing about Hamleys is not just the toys that appeal to all ages – it’s the in-store demonstrations by staff – who apparently spend about 90,000 hours a year doing so with the latest toys. This is what makes Hamleys so special.
