Hamleys has become a landmark today and the original store is 7 storeys tall, with each floor selling a dedicated section of toys.

What store has the best toy selection?

Many toy shops today have a wide selection of toys that will keep customers of all ages happy. To find the best one for you, look at what they specialise in and whether they are accommodating your needs and wants. Visit the toy shop’s website or give them a call to enquire about what they have in stock, and what they can order for you. Some of the most popular toys include LEGO, soft toys, puzzles, board games, dollhouses, action figures, battery-operated cars and puppets.

Do toy shops only sell toys?

Many toy shops sell a lot more than traditional children’s toys. You can find collectable items, pool floats, posters and stickers, books, costumes and accessories and even video games. Some toy shops also sell clothing and footwear for children of all ages and sizes. Many toy shops have a dedicated educational corner that sells items for learning and edutainment.

Do toy shops raise their prices over Christmas?

Prices for high demand toys may go up over Christmas and other holidays, especially if stock is running low. Most people prefer to do their shopping during the Black Friday sales at the end of November so they can beat the holiday rush during Christmas, and make good use of the drop in prices. Those who can wait and be patient on their demand for popular toys can make use of sales in January as stores try to drop prices and clear their leftover holiday stock. To save money, make lists of everything you need to buy and plan your shopping in advance.

Where can I buy toys cheap?

Compare prices from toy stores around your area with those you find online. Many times, second-hand toys are much cheaper and you can find these at garage sales, online auctions and toy swap events.

Where can I buy wholesale toys?

Check with your favourite toy store if they are able to sell items wholesale. If you are a regular shopper, they might tell you where they get their toys supplied from and could help you by connecting you with a wholesale seller.
